Head Above Water has taught thousands of children to swim. Below are just a few of the very satisfied customers. It is our aim to ensure quality and extreme satisfaction with every part of our service.
I checked out every swim school before selecting Head Above Water for my
daughter. Their philosophy strikes a perfect balance for my strong-willed, water-
loving two-year old. She went from needing to be constantly held in the pool,
to jumping in by herself and swimming from one end to the other in a matter of
weeks! The peace of mind I have now is priceless, and so is the look on Chloe's
face when she does it herself.
Head Above Wwater was a terrific experience for our 17month old. Weekly
Mommy and Me lessons at our home with friends and other children his
age, allowed him to get used to the pool, be with his peers and
experiences, and have a great time with the water toddler program designed
by HAW's founder, Meredith Mcwatters. Each teacher on her staff is a gifted
swimmer as well as wonderful teachers for young children.

Gillian started the summer afraid to put her head under the water, and now we
have underwater movies of her blowing bubbles 2 feet under. HAW's gentle
and firm direction is exactly what Gillian needed to overcome her fear of the
water. Gillian was very proud of herself when she swam across the pool.
After trying 6 swim schools, we finally found Head Above Water. The teachers at
HAW will transform for your small children from dog paddlers to real swimmers.
My children adore our teachers as do my husband and I. HAW is a real find!
My daughter and her friends thrived in a relaxed back yard pool
atmosphere, with Head Above Water's caring, age-appropriate and challenging
instruction. HAW’s teachers strike a balance between comforting
preschoolers who may be skittish and pushing them to really learn to swim!
Thanks to HAW’s talented swimming teachers, my four year old daughter dives
into the deep end and swims the length of our pool. Her ability to swim different
strokes allows me to feel more comfortable when she is in the water.
HAW was extremely accommodating to my son's needs. Not only did our
instructor know just how to handle his issues with staying focused while in the
pool, but also, the management staff was very obliging when it came to tweaking
the program to fit our requirements.
As parents of a toddler and pool owners, we are extremely concerned
with water safety. Head Above Water Swim School understood our concerns
and implemented a thoughtful, fun and effective series of swimming
lessons for our son. We are forever grateful to HAW because
our son is now water-safe!

Because of developmental and sensory issues our son was petrified to even
stand on the steps of our swimming pool. The Head Above Water Staff
connected us with a very kind, patient teacher who after only a few lessons
was able to accomplish things we never thought possible. Now, a few months
later, our son looks forward to spending time with us in the pool and the entire
experience has improved his self-esteem and taught him that he can conquer his
My 2 1/2 year old son was afraid of getting his face wet. With the patience
and fun games of the Head Above Water instructors, my son was swimming
underwater with no fear.
From remaining in hotel rooms in Hawaii too scared to go down near the pools in
prior years... to BEGGING to go swimming and jumping off the sides of the pool
this summer after Head Above Water lessons. This is a BIG success, we are so
thankful for HAW!
