AQUA-TOTS SWIM SCHOOLS
Aqua-Tots was founded in 1991 in Scottsdale, Arizona by Ron and Jane Sciarro. The two always had a love for children and dreamed about running their own business. So, when Ron and Jane identified very few quality swim programs for parents to enroll their children in, they started their own learn-to-swim business. The two taught classes to families seasonally from March through October. Over the next few years, the founders designed and developed a comprehensive training curriculum that focused on meeting the needs of two important people: the child and the parent.
TAKING IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
After years of success, the couple decided to turn their seasonal school operation into a year-round business by opening state-of-the-art training centers. Shortly after, the founders partnered with Paul and Heather Preston to create the beginning stages of the franchise model and formed “Aqua-Tots Swim Schools.”
In 2005, Aqua-Tots Swim Schools designed and developed a dedicated indoor facility in Arizona to serve families in the Metropolitan Phoenix area year-round. After years of mastering how to sell, how to teach and how to retain a solid employee base and a large client base, Aqua-Tots Swim Schools created a franchise business model to be replicated throughout the United States.

YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Since 1991, Aqua-Tots has been an industry leader in swimming instruction. We challenge the status quo in the swim industry, focusing on delivering top-quality swim lessons and providing our swimmers with Lessons for Life. Our name is recognized around the world, as we have served many communities over the years in our efforts to reduce drownings on a global scale.
Decades of instructional experience have molded our comprehensive swimming curriculum. As an active member of the United States Swim School Association (USSSA), Aqua-Tots regularly participates in educational opportunities to maintain a high teaching standard in the swim industry. With the main focus being safety, our curriculum helps children learn how to swim and develop a lifelong love of swimming.
QUALITY SWIM INSTRUCTORS
Every one of our instructors goes through over 40 hours of intensive classroom and in-water training. In addition, our Aqua-Tots Swim Schools Water Safety Instructors (AT-WSI) have passed an online exam and have obtained CPR training prior to receiving an AT-WSI Certification and to teaching their first swim lesson. Once certified, our instructors are assessed regularly to assure lesson quality and consistency. We want to ensure that your family receives a quality lesson, every time.
Our year-round training centers offer families a clean, safe, and family friendly teaching environment. The water is always 88-90 degrees to ensure our swimmers are comfortable in the water.
We have multiple locations in the United States and around the world to serve families. For more information on our locations, please visit our Locations page.
