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.

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.

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.
Even from a young age, Callie has always had a very energetic and playful personality. Callie attended a fine arts Elementary school where she found her love for dance and performing which she now channels into fun swim lessons.
Callie first found Emler Swim School in October of 2013 when she was hired as a swim teacher at the Frisco Location. At the time, she was studying Ecology at the University of North Texas. While teaching at Frisco, she was promoted to a Waterbabies and Mentor teacher. In 2016 Emler expanded to Flower Mound, where Callie transferred, becoming one of Flower Mound’s first teachers! After graduating college, Callie entered the Manager in Training program and she was later promoted to Customer Service Manager, and then Site Director.
“I’ve always loved working at Emler, and this is by far the most fun job I have ever had! I’ve been lucky to experience Flower Mound’s growth from day one, and I am excited to see what the future holds for this location!”
In Callie‘s off time, she loves being outdoors bird watching, hiking, tending to her garden, or spending time with her boyfriend and their dog Vader.
Q+A with Callie
What is the best part about working for Emler every day?
The best part of working at Emler is having the opportunity to be my truest self, and have fun while doing it. Each day I get to witness children conquer their fears, and learn to save their lives. It is by far the most fulfilling job I’ve ever had!
What do you believe makes you a great site director?
I consider all my staff and customers as Family, and I want them to succeed. I have mentored multiple staff members into promotions and internships, and nothing gives me joy like seeing our students make progress and smash their goals!
What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?
Picking out my favorite memory at Emler is difficult because I have so many! One thing that sticks out to me is a special student named Everly. I first met Everly in my Super Waterbabies class where it was her first time being in the water without parents. We instantly became best friends! I helped her be brave and learn to be independent, while she taught me everything I needed to know about Paw Patrol. She would always end class with “I love you Ms. Callie“.
Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.
When I was a young child, I almost became a statistic. At 3 years old, I fell into a cold lake in winter without a life jacket. Although my brother was able to get help and save me, I understand firsthand the importance of swim lessons and water safety!
Share a childhood memory when you were brave and overcame fear.
Growing up, I was never much of a public speaker. I’m definitely an extrovert and I don’t mind performing on a stage, but public speaking was always scary for me. Working at Emler, I got to practice with parent talks, leading staff meetings, and giving announcements. This helped me find my voice, and I can now say that it’s now one of my strong suits!
Q+A with Collin
Why do you love working with kids?
Kids have such wonderful imaginations and personalities. I love that we never know what they are going to say. The greatest joy at Emler is getting to see children succeed and knowing I got to be a part of the reason. The joy on their face when they are able to do something new is a never ending source of joy for me as well!
What do you enjoy outside of working at Emler?
I am a huge reader and spend a great deal of time reading books! When I am not doing that I spend time outdoors or just watching tv on the couch with my wife, Lacey, and my german shepherd, Kylie.
