Dear Rob and Kathy: “A massive thanks to you and your wonderful school for providing us such a beautiful experience and precious mother & child moments.  Being “swim partners” (Antonela & I) and seeing her develop a love for the water and also achieve milestone after milestone is not only heartwarming, but priceless for us.  A huge thank you from the depths of our hearts for everything you do for us and the rest of the community.  It is such a gift to find people that truly care for and respect children and the way they learn naturally.  By nourishing these little souls, you are making such a huge impact.  The positive and loving energy we feel during and after the classes is a sure sign you are doing many things right and we are blessed to have the opportunity to take your classes.  Much luck to you both.


Antonela, Virginia, and Stan

  • Dear Rob & Kathy, I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful and informative time I spent with you at the Teacher’s workshop. First of all I was touched by your hospitality and your genuine interest in us as participants. I learned so much during our talks and lectures and it was great to put it all into practice during our daily swim sessions. It is obvious that your years of experience have allowed you to perfect your gentle loving approach to baby swim classes and I must say that your clients are blessed to be a part of your program. I am grateful to you for affording me the opportunity to benefit from your knowledge of children’s swimming. I also appreciate your continued support as I return to my own community to implement the ideals of the program.–Suzy (Atlanta)

Thanks for everything!–Kristin (Kentucky)

  • Dear Rob and Kathy, I can't thank you enough for the amazing time and experience I went through over the  weeks I spent taking the course with you. There are no words that can describe the wonderful people you are, but certainly it reflects in the babies you teach and the parents you guide, as well as in the lovely family you have. This is for sure, something I will never forget. I'm looking forward to visit you again.–César Ascencio. Esq. San Salvador, El Salvador
