GOLDFISH SWIM SCHOOL

Guided Play + Safe Environment = The Science of SwimPlay®


About Us

You feel it the moment you walk in. Something different. It’s more than vibrant colors chosen to inspire kids. More than a curriculum crafted not only to teach kids how to swim but also to build their character through guided play. More than a shiver-free pool heated to 90°. There’s something more. Something unexpected. Something that propels Goldfish Swim School beyond typical. It’s passion.

Not just a passion for kids or a passion for swimming…it’s a special passion for changing – even saving – lives by teaching kids to swim.

A passion born in the heart of a mom driven by her love for children, swimming and a desire to deliver an unmatched “Golden Experience” for kids and their families.

Our revolutionary Perpetual Lessons model includes:

• One lifeguard certified instructor for every four children

• Year-round swim lessons for children 4 months to 12 years and for swimmers of all abilities

• Our proprietary The Science of SwimPlay® Curriculum focused on teaching swim and safety skills while building character through guided play

• Curriculum focused on teaching swim and safety skills while building character

• And much, much more!

Goldfish History

The Goldfish Experience was born when Co-Founder Jenny McCuiston realized the demand for quality swim instruction after teaching swim lessons at a local swim club in the summer of 2000. She became increasingly busy with customers, and her business grew steadily throughout the summer. In the summer of 2004, Jenny decided to teach swim lessons at a nearby country club. Jenny, again, realized the great need for quality swim instruction as she regularly accumulated a waiting list and her clientele grew to record-breaking numbers for the club by summer’s end.

So, with the help of her husband Chris, Co-Founder of Goldfish Swim School, she began researching the swim industry in late 2004. They traveled the country, learning from other swim school owners at several swim school conferences before beginning the two-year development of their business plan. In early 2005, Jenny created the systems that Goldfish still uses and improves upon to this day, and it was also at that time that she and Chris dreamt up their rustic beach house decor, all from the kitchen of their home.

After the two years of research, and a lot of hard work, Chris and Jenny opened Goldfish Swim School in Birmingham, Michigan on March 20, 2006. They opened with over 500 students enrolled and, within two years, the business had grown to teach more than 2,000 students per week.

Since opening its first franchise in 2009 in Farmington Hills, Michigan, Goldfish Swim School has continued to grow across North America. There are currently more than 90 schools open or in development in more than 34 states and Canada. Today, Goldfish is proud to teach more than 100,000 students per week how to swim and how to be safer in and around the water.
