How did you get started teaching?

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.


What types of students have you worked with?

Our swimming instruction is designed for children of all ages and abilities, including our infant and baby swim lessons, toddler swim lessons, and swimming classes for kids of all ages: 4 months, age 2, age 3, age 4, age 5… all the way to age 12! We also offer swim lessons for adults and special needs students. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

We recommend year-round swimming lessons for children because the continuity helps them retain more knowledge for a longer period of time. With the gap created by seasonal swimming lessons, children tend to regress from their swimming skill level; this ultimately results in having to refresh those skills before they can build new skills.
