“Very good course as a parent who do not know how to swim. The school uses a simple program that is proven very highly effective for my babies. The teachers in this school are knowledgeable and had done many researches always finding new methods to engage the kids. I believe that my baby are now happier in water, with better developed motor skills to move around freely. I am glad and find less worried now even if she fell into the water. She can now twist and turn herself in the pool floating to grasp air! High recommend Friendly Dolphin Swim School”
