Our Philosophy - Over the years, Delaware Swim School has been instructing thousands of children and adults. It is understood that everyone who enters the pool for his or her first lesson brings some fear or anxiety. Our job starts here. We take each individual and start to build security and trust. The goal is to have each person enjoy and appreciate the water.

Learning to swim is a gift that we love to give to everyone. To achieve this goal, we use the “Love and Logic” method developed by Jim Fay and David Funk. Relationships are built, not only with the children, but with the parents.

With great patience and love the children develop trust and security within themselves, the instructor, and the water. By offering children choices, self-esteem is strengthened. We can only teach children the knowledge; they must willingly use it. Regardless of performance, these children have our unconditional respect and are treated with dignity.

Our Approach

Learning to swim is a gift that we love and wish to give to everyone. To achieve this, our methodology focuses on developing relationships not only with the children, but also the parents. Our goal is to make each student comfortable so they can thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the water!
