We’ve been setting the standard of aquatic education for the last 49 years, successfully teaching over a million children how to swim. With our highly trained swim teachers and fun environment, Emler is the best place for your child to learn to swim!
Emler Swim School was founded in 1975 by Jan Emler who started a career as a lifeguard and swim instructor. While working, Jan saw a need for a more focused and nurturing approach to teaching children how to swim. Her belief was every child has the ability to swim, and she could help them discover how in a fun and playful environment.
Jan started teaching lessons in backyard pools. Word quickly spread about the effectiveness of Emler’s approach. Now we are proud to have over 30 locations across the country with more coming soon!
