Swimming lessons

We've noticed how much Bryce enjoys the water plus we have a big swimming pool in our backyard, so safety + fun = swimming lessons.
How to find the best swimming school? How do you know what to expect in a good swimming school? Thanks to the good, almighty internet, we did our research and found the Water whisperer . Good reviews, close to our house. Let's go and contact them.
I called them and started to make the arrangements to begin the swimming classes. Although, the whole process of paying and signing the contract seemed a little bit too strict, we thought we're enrolling for the Academy of swimming, I have to admit the program is pretty awesome and the instructor is amazing!
We got to swim with Brandon! What a great instructor with great energy and instant bonding with the kids! I mean all the kids who are his students absolutely adore him.
Because Bryce is only 21 months old, I have to be in the water with him, but let me tell you, apart from the first 2 minutes of the first class when he cried a bit, after that my baby boy was totally in his element and enjoying every single minute.
The class for the small kids is very well structured: with songs and funny learning skills and we can already see the results: he's kicking, paddling, doing submerges etc. We still have 2 more classes and I'm pretty sure he will not know how to swim but the end of this, but it's a GREAT start and we'll continue 'til he'll get the swimming down.
One more important thing I have to mention: your attitude as a parent NEEDS to be reassuring, rewarding, positive! Our kids mirror our feelings! If we are scared, they will be scared! If we are insecure, they will be insecure! You NEED to show them confidence and believe in their accomplishments!
So, little ones and boys out there who are living in the neighborhood or not come and swim with the Water Whisperer!
I don't have any liaison with the school owner, I'm just a happy mother and client.
