Yes.  At The Pool School, the small pool water temperature is kept at 90°F (32.22 °C).
That’s right, a warm 90 degrees.
Students enjoy the comfort of warm water, while having fun learning to swim.

The length of time needed for a child to learn to swim is nearly impossible to forecast.  Not much different from learning other physical skills such as riding a bike, learning to swim uses motor skills they have yet to master. Physical abilities and confidence play a major role in the learning process. An older and more confident student will progress faster than a younger less experienced student by comparison. The Pool School instructors are committed to allowing each student to learn and develop at their own pace. Our goal is to see each student master the skill sets needed to become strong swimmers and enjoy the learning process.
