The kids absolutely loved Samantha as an instructor and I did too – she was always prompt and accommodating for any minor changes that needed to be made. She was really great with the kids as well, catering seamlessly to their different swim levels and the fun games she had for them to play.

My kids had a fantastic time learning to swim with Jordan. He was reliable, he showed up on time and ready to go for all the lessons. He was great with all three kids and made the lessons a lot of fun for them. Even now, in November, they are still talking about their lessons with him.

All of my children have excelled in the individual services that Caitlin Howell offers for swimming lessons. The convenience of having lessons in our own backyard coupled with Caitlin’s competent and capable staff has ensured an accelerated completion of the swimming tiers.

I just wanted to let you know as well that Samantha was great. The kids really enjoyed her and she was very accommodating when I had to move around some of the lesson dates.
