Because we know you expect the best for your child, we hold our swim teachers to the highest standards. We keep classes small: four students to one teacher for most classes, and six students to one teacher for classes in which parents stay in the water with their babies. These small class sizes ensure that our teachers give each child individual attention, and allow adequate time to gain an understanding of each child’s skills, personality, and learning style.
At the end of each class, your child’s teacher will spend a few minutes communicating with you about your child’s progress. This is a perfect time to ask any questions and learn how to practice skills with your child outside of class.
When you visit Emler, don’t be surprised when staff members know you and your child by name. Each instructor is committed to getting to know your family, helping your child achieve success, and ensuring that your child meets his or her swimming goals by the end of each semester.
After more than 40 years of continually improving swim education techniques, our own award-winning Swim Script curriculum places Emler Swim School far ahead of any other swim program. The Emler Sure Guarantee creates peace of mind for parents who need their children swimming the first time they enroll.
Emler’s Swim Script curriculum includes 20 consecutive levels of year-round instruction for swimmers of all ages and skill levels. These highly effective lessons are continuously updated with new teaching techniques and safety skills. Each level guarantees successful completion of clearly defined goals for all students in just one semester. The results of Emler’s Swim Script is a 99.9% success rate which produces confident little swimmers and parents who are "Emler Sure”.
The overall aim of our Swim Script curriculum is for every student to learn to swim, to love being in the water, and to be safe around water. Classes are kept small, with a maximum of four students to every teacher for most levels. Waterbabies classes, in which parents stay in the water with their babies, maintain a maximum 6-to-1 infant-to-teacher ratio. The result is a nurturing environment with innovative and creative teaching methods that engage every child and encourage confidence.
We not only teach all kids to love swimming, we also teach them how to respond in a water safety emergency. Each class level includes special training to enhance water safety. One week of every semester is Water Safety Week, where we introduce lifejacket and boat safety as well as how to respond to an unexpected fall into the pool. Another week near the end of the semester highlights “Clothesline Day,” when children recover from a simulated fall into the water while wearing street clothes.
From our infant classes to our recreational swim teams, our curriculum is designed to:
• Help students overcome fear of water with effective, practical swim skills.
• Give swimmers the skills they need to rescue themselves if they get into trouble in the water.
• Teach students to enjoy swimming and choose it as a lifetime activity.
