In nearly 40 years of fun and learning, Emler Swim School has perfected the art of teaching children to love swimming and stay safe in the water. An award-winning Swim Script curriculum places Emler Swim School far ahead of any other swim instruction program.
The overall aim of Emler Swim Schools curriculum is for every student to learn to swim, to love being in the water, and to be safe around water. Classes are kept small, with a maximum of four students to every teacher for most levels. Waterbabies classes, in which parents stay in the water with their babies, maintain a maximum 6-to-1 infant-to-teacher ratio. The result is a nurturing environment with innovative and creative teaching methods that engage every child and encourage confidence.
Emler not only teaches all kids to love swimming, it also teach the children how to respond in a water safety emergency. Each class level includes special training to enhance water safety. One week of every semester is Water Safety Week, where they introduce lifejacket and boat safety as well as how to respond to an unexpected fall into the pool. Another week near the end of the semester includes Clothesline Day, when children recover from a simulated fall into the water while wearing street clothes.
From Waterbabies classes for infants to our higher-level swimming classes and recreational swim teams for accomplished swimmers, Emlers curriculum is designed to:
-- Help students overcome fear of water with effective, practical swim skills
-- Give swimmers the skills they need to rescue themselves if they get into trouble in the water
-- Teach students to enjoy swimming and choose it as a lifetime activity
