Frequently Asked Questions

 

What are your class ratios?

We’ve always had small class sizes of 3-4 kiddos, as well as private lessons, and nothing has changed. We now offer the option to form your own private group with family, friends or neighbors you know. Additionally, another option is the parent & child class, with appropriate spacing between families in the pool, where kids receive instruction from a teacher on the deck. We are monitoring and strictly adhering to all local, state and federal guidelines regarding levels of occupancy and the number of people that are allowed in gatherings so we can continue to be the healthiest, happiest pool in town.

How can I learn more about swim lessons?

You can get in touch with us in many different ways – call 855-232-2006, fill out this form or sit in on a virtual live information session that guarantees there won't be any phone tag. We host them on Zoom at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Central, Monday through Thursday. You can have your camera turned on or off, whatever you're most comfortable with! Sign up here.

How To Prepare Your Kids For a Lifetime of Swimming Safety

1. Start teaching kids water safety early.

Teaching kids to swim needs to happen as early as possible to prevent the risk of accidental drowning. Formal swim lessons result in an 88% reduction in drowning risk for children ages 1 to 4, studies have found, and children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates, according to the CDC. At Emler Swim School, safety is our top priority and why we are so passionate about teaching swim lessons. We want to empower children and their families with the water safety information they need to protect themselves.

2. Teach kids in a supportive environment.

Evidence tells us that children learn best in encouraging, supportive environments. At Emler Swim School, we create a warm, safe atmosphere to help children feel free to explore and try new things that may scare them initially. We know some children find the water daunting and we want to do everything we can not only to help them feel comfortable in the water but also enjoy swimming and playing in the pool.

3. Make swimming lessons fun with positive reinforcement.

Songs, games and playing make-believe are part of the curriculum. Progress is measured and milestones are celebrated, both big and small. Through encouraging words and high-fives during every class, learning to swim is as fun as possible. While safety is our number one priority, students also learn a love for the water.

4. Repetition, repetition, repetition.

Just like any skill or sport, perfect practice makes perfect. In the case of water safety, proper swimming and safety skills become muscle memory. The more a child is doing a specific activity, the more it becomes an instant reaction. If a little one finds themself unexpectedly in water, it is ideal for their instincts and muscle memory to take over without much conscious effort. One of the most popular lesson days at Emler is when the kids jump in the pool with all their clothes on so they know what it feels like to be in water in something other than bathing suits. They then turn around to the wall for a safe exit.

5. Celebrate progress!

Both small and large achievements are celebrated, as mentioned earlier. For some kids, putting their face in the water is a big step forward, so we recognize and applaud this. We have informal and formal ways of marking progress, from showering the little swimmers with praise to providing ribbons of completion at the end of a level. At Emler, swimming is made as fun and rewarding as possible while teaching the basics of water safety so all the kiddos feel confident around water.

Q+A with Frankie

What is the best part about working for Emler every day?

The best part about working for Emler is the impact I make in someone’s life every single day.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

What I believe makes me a great General Manager is the fact that I put my heart in every single thing I do. Being a great GM is more than just the title, but being able to take care of the people around you and making your home the best place it can be for anyone that comes in.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.
I did not have formal swim lessons growing up and I was afraid to be in the water, but it was always amazing to see how people swam. From simple swimming to competitive swimming I thought it was all amazing that I ended up teaching myself.
What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?
My favorite memory working at Emler is racing a family during the 2018 Summer Dailies. It all started with the youngest sibling not wanting to swim because she was nervous. On that day I made him a bet that if he learned everything from his new class I would race him. He ended up including his older siblings in this little wager and to make it fair I ended up swimming with my jeans and polo. The family ended up winning and I rewarded them with Skittles.
Share a childhood memory when you were brave and overcame fear.

A childhood memory was when I first flew on an airplane. Being very high up in the sky made everything scary because I wasn’t in control of it. My friends around me did everything they could do to comfort me and remind me that everything was going to be okay. I took a deep breath and went for it and now I love flying on Airplanes!

Why do you love working with kids?
I love being able to teach kids the tools that they need. Teaching kids to become water-safe and learning to save their own lives brings me joy every single day. They say you’ll never work a day in your life if you do what you love, and I feel that way at Emler daily!
What do you enjoy doing outside of Emler?
I love reading and going to the park with my husband and our two cocker spaniels. I’m always working on something and am passionate about making our planet a better place.
