I love our instructor. She's great. But she is just about the only saving grace at this place. The cuddles and strokes class was a waste of time and money. Instructors sucked and were more interested in each other than the kids. Its

We have had a remarkable experience with the staff at the Westbury Saf-T-Swim location. From the moment we inquired about enrolling our son in classes the staff has been pleasant and helpful.

FYI the swim teacher was fired. Now heis nerd raging about his job . As you can see by coment's, you wouldn't want him teaching your child which is why he is no longer an instructor.
There are people with no jobs on long island right

As a 17 year old employee of Saf-T-Swim I can assure you that we do not have any sort of fun "Swimming all year and still getting paid" if thats what they are calling our meager pay of 9 dollars an hour which translates to 4.50 for the

We wanted private lessons for our kid to learn to swim and found this place. After one lesson, the teacher quited and we were informed half hour before the class starts. They said they would assign a new teacher next week. New instructor

Price very reasonable for private lesson (especially w/packages). Seems to be run by younger folks (16-22) & there are older desk folks there occasionally (not anyone older than 30) it does appear as if the kids at the desk are more interested in socializing. But that's kids at that age. The building isn't easy to find (its got paintings of sea animals on it - but no sign). Street parking is reasonable. The building accomodations good (& clean) - boys & girls separate bathrooms & changing rooms (w/showers but no hair dryers), family rooms, viewing room, snack/drink machines, selection of purchaseable items - bathing suits, towels, diaper covers, goggles, etc. There are several levels of achievement & your kid starts w/the first one - depending on how good they already know how to swim or fast of a learner they are (obviously age is a factor) your child moves step by step thru the levels. When a kid moves from one level to the next, the instructor announces it to the whole pool & the kid gets a ribbon. (very touching, actually) The 3 instructors my daughter has had were all good. There are sometimes issues w/the pool (a kid gets sick and everyone has to get out, the chemicals are off) & they have to cancel lessons. But it is rare. Sometimes cancellations happen when parents have already left the house & it's too late to contact them. I see the staff talking w/angry parents & after they have already had 10 sets of parents scream at them, the 11th set doesn't get the very best communication skills that staffer (and remember, they are usually 16-18 years old) has to offer. The swim lessons are well organized & progressive - you can see your child make progress week after week. Instructor gives verbal summary each week (3-4 sentences) on child's progress. 4 star rating is based on the facility and lessons - not the staff behind the desk. There are 3 good desk folks I have dealt with & I try to look for and only work with them. I'm happy with StS & recommend it.

Pros: lessons logical, can see progress of child, warm water, cleanliness, instructors

Cons: altho friendly, staff behind desk is not superior

My daughter has attended Saf-T-Swim at Westbury for the past 2 years, but lately we had so many scheduling issues with the facility, I have decided to pull my daughter out after the end of this session and warn anyone who are thinking about taking swimming lesson there.

The latest incident happened on 10/8/07 and I totally gave up reasoning with the staffs on duty. The staffs were irresponsible and the management did not seem to care at all. We have learned from the past to call the facility before we leave our house, just to confirm that a female instructor would be there at the scheduled time because my daughter preferred a female instructor to a male instructor. I did just that on Oct. 8th and received a confirmation that a female instructor would be there at 1:30pm for my daughter's makeup class. After I arrived at the facility, I confirmed again when I walked by the counter and the receptionist told me that the instructor was already in the pool. I changed my daughter and walked her to the poolside. At that time, the instructor told me that she had to go to school, therefore she could not teach the 1:30pm lesson and only a male instructor was available. When I explained the situation to the management, JOHN simply said that we did not know that the instructor had to leave at 1:30pm, and it was not our issue that your daughter preferred a female instructor. Instead of starting an argument in front of my kids, I just shook my head and walked out of the door this time.

I advise all parents to stay away from Saf-T-Swim at Westbury.
