My three-year old learned to swim here last year. I'm very sensitive to my son and certainly don't want him to be frightened or cry too much in any way. He was very nervous about putting his face in the water. I explained this to the

I echo RSMomma's comments about this school and their unnecesarry "tough love" approach. Just read the "foundationless accusations" post by the owner! Does this sound like a nice person?

Read the preaching and the put-downs--it is

My son's pediatrician recommended Seal Swim School when I mentioned enrolling at the YMCA for swim lessons. The review left by rsmomma almost kept me from going to the school. I am very, very happy that my son is swimming at the school

This is in response to rsmomma's review of Seal Swim School. It has come to my attention that you have been writing unsubstantiated reviews of our swim school's methodology; and I am perplexed at your ability to do so. It is my understanding that your family recently attended a birthday party at our facility and you were upset with the rules we have set in place for the safety of our non-swimming guest. At Seal Swim School, safety comes first above all else and it is unfortunate our rules did not agree with your own set of beliefs. However, I do not believe this warrants your unjustified comments concerning our teaching methods, since you have never attended our swim program and it is obvious you have decided NOT to teach your own children this invaluable life saving skill. It has been my life's work to to teach children to swim and to be safer in and around all bodies of water. Although Seal Swim School's reputation speaks for its self, there are many qualified swim programs, just please teach your children to swim!

Pros: thousands of children have learned how to swim!

Cons: too many children have NOT learned how to swim!

Run, don't walk away from this swim torture school! Don't let the crowds fool you. There are lots of people in Florida who buy into this philosophy that "all kids must cry to learn to swim...they'll get over it." It is so weird that you are made to feel stupid for wanting swimming to be fun. If your child is fearful of the water, or not confident, or scared of teachers, this is NOT the place for swim lessons. When you talk to them on the phone they will admit you are NOt allowed near the pool and that your child will cry. Very very bad strategy and not one you would tolerate for one second in preschool or any other kind of lesson. No one should willingly use power to make your kids cry. This place has a structure and no exceptions are made if your kids needs a little more TLC. My friend also had a bad experience, her son cried for weeks, "and they just didn't care," she said. She went to Lafleurs and is very pleased. Please don't do this to your kids at Seal.

Pros: nice people, great facility

Cons: philosophy is that crying is just fine
