Emler Swim School is excited to officially announce expansion into the Houston, Texas, metropolitan area with locations being built in the Clear Lake and Meyerland areas, projected to open in the first week of May 2017.
“Announcing entry into the Houston metropolitan area is a proud day for Emler, and very exciting for me personally,” Greg Laird, Emler CEO and Houston native, said. “I grew up in the Houston area, and it is deeply satisfying for our company — long considered to be the premier swim school in Texas — to help Houston’s children become safer around water. Our warm, encouraging methodology and performance guarantee provides children with skills for a life-long activity.”
Emler has named Best Infant Swim School for the past six years by Dallas Child and Fort Worth Child magazines in their Best for Moms & Babies issues. Additionally, Emler was voted Best Swimming Party by Dallas Child magazine in 2016. Our employees have also weighed in, casting their votes to place our company (for the second consecutive year) on the Dallas Morning News 2016 Top 100 Places to Work list, and also the Austin Business Journal 2016 Best Places to Work list. Most recently, Emler Swim School was honored by Star Local Media readers in North Texas with awards for Best Swim Lessons/School in the communities of Allen, McKinney and Frisco.
Emler’s Swim Script© curriculum, developed over more than 40 years of teaching swimming lessons, helps children develop swim skills in a caring and supportive environment. Swim teachers are highly trained to educate with care, and the Emler Guarantee ensures that no child finishes the semester without having met the goals of the curriculum.
Both Houston facilities will provide the perfect combination of warm water, loving instructors, convenient class times, and comfortable, air-conditioned parent viewing. A state-of-the-art UV system and gentle salt water chlorine generator will be installed to keep the water healthy and pristine. Ample window space illuminates the pool with natural light during the day to brighten the room, and changing areas are provided on deck to keep swimmers warm as they dry off after class.
Emler Swim School of Houston-Clear Lake will be added to new construction, conveniently located at the intersection of El Dorado Blvd. and Clear Lake City Blvd. Emler Clear Lake will share the property with many popular neighborhood dining and retail destinations. Like all other Emler facilities, the 5,300 square-foot school will be child-friendly and fully equipped with the latest tools in swim instruction.
Emler Swim School of Houston-Meyerland will be a 7,500 square foot facility, occupying what was formerly a Dollar Tree general store. Ample parking and ease of access from both Post Oak Road and I-610 will be a welcome feature for busy families. Notable neighbors in the shopping center include Kohls, Randalls and Wal-Mart. Like its sister location in Clear Lake, the Meyerland swim school will be built to Emler’s child-friendly design.
