I have vivid memories from my own childhood of splashing, swimming, and enjoying the water. It’s for that reason that I get excited about the prospect of watching my own daughter create similar memories as she grows. As a parent, I also have a lingering fear thinking about the dangers associated with not knowing how to swim. Teaching young children (and adults who don’t know) how to swim is extremely important.
We are so excited to help announce the grand opening of Emler Swim School in Leawood, Kansas. Founded in 1975 by Jan Emler, who has been teaching swimming for the past 50 years, her schools specialize in water education for babies and preschoolers Ms Emler was inducted into the USSSA (United States Swim School Association) Hall of fame in 2010 and serves as a keynote speaker for aquatic conferences across North America and Australia.
Emler schools pride themselves in hiring nurturing, extensively trained teachers who provide an effective and happy environment in tropical water where parents can observe lessons from a comfortable viewing room. Leawood’s new heated, indoor facility will offer swimming instruction including communication with parents, “safety with a splash of love”™, and pool parties available to Johnson County families.
Although swim classes officially began at the location late last month, the school is excited to announce that registration for new classes is now open. Emler Swim School is hosting a Grand Opening celebration THIS weekend and invites YOU to join in on the fun. This free event is open to the public and will include:
- FREE family swim
- FREE food and refreshments
- FREE door prizes
- FREE drawings for swim lessons and pool parties
