Get Hooked on Goldfish Swim School

If you don’t own a pet goldfish, at least your kids can swim like one. Goldfish Swim School is open in West Chester and this impressive local business is going swimmingly.

Goldfish Swim School Owners Mandy and Joe Yackey jumped into our community with both feet to meet their goal–to be the best at what they do.

Providing year-round swim lessons for children ages four months through 12 years, the school is built upon a strong foundation of love for children, a passion for swim safety and gold-standard customer service.

Local member Stacey Johnson brings her four-year-old daughter to Goldfish Swim School for lessons. She says, “Goldfish is a great asset to our community. It’s important for our kids to learn water safety, and great that they actually enjoy it.”

Laurie Jahnke of Liberty Township enrolled her two young children for swim lessons.

“We’ve learned more in the last three months than a year in another program,” Jahnke says.

Johnson adds, “One of the things that really turned me on to Goldfish is that they offer smaller classes. [My daughter] has become an independent swimmer in just four months time.”

Goldfish Swim School sets up a flexible class schedule, designed to fit into the busy lives of families with young children. Lessons are easily shifted to different days and times as your family schedule changes. Make-up lessons are offered if your swimmer has to miss. Your child’s progress stays on track, and you get your money’s worth.

Goldfish Swim School anticipates every need. Their onsite Treasure Island Pro Shop is stocked with everything swimmers need for a lesson–or might accidentally leave behind at home. The parent-pleasing menu at the Snack Shack snack bar keeps energy high. Even hair-drying stations are available to allow parents to dry wet heads before leaving the building for the winter air outside.

On a chilly February day, stepping into Goldfish Swim School is like taking a tropical vacation. Decorated with bright colors and thatched umbrellas, the school is an island retreat.

The 90-degree pool isn’t the only source of warmth at Goldfish Swim School–the staff is warm and friendly, too.

Johnson shares, “Everybody who works there is so welcoming. They know my daughter by name. They know me by name. They are so kind.”

Goldfish’s trained swim teachers celebrate students’ achievements, small and large. A rainbow of ribbons goes home with students when they pass swimming benchmarks. Balloons and prizes motivate kids to sharpen their water skills.

“The teachers are really good, highly qualified and very kid-friendly. They like kids and are good at what they do and it really shows,” Jahnke notes.

“Especially for busy, working parents, this is a great value for your time and money,” she says.

In addition to swim lessons, Goldfish Swim School offers water safety presentations, swim parties and Family Swim hours.
