After one week with Red Whale she was able to go underwater, jump in and most importantly she now loved swimming!" Summer camp 2019

THIS is what swimming lessons are supposed to be like! Where you can actually see them learning to swim and LOVE the water at the same time. It is so, SO much better than anything else in Geneva/Vaud!” Autumn Term 2018

“Ce que j'ai aimé: pour les plus de 3 ans, pouvoir laisser son enfant avec un professeur compétent et voir les progrès réalisés très rapidement, pour les moins de 3 ans, les différents exercices à pouvoir refaire seul avec son enfant.” Lausanne 2019

“Friendly, positive teachers: vital for a shy child like ours. The fact that he willingly went into the water without me proves this– I couldn’t believe it! Although Red Whale lessons are at the pricier end of the market, it is well worth it to have a nurturing approach to learning a vital life skill. Responsive, well-trained staff and a child-centred outlook are 100 times better than the other teaching methods I have witnessed in the area… I only wish you’d been around when my boys were smaller!” Summer Camp 2018

“It is a wonderfully nurturing environment. My child is happy and confident in the water since the lessons. There is zero comparison to French swimming lessons.” Autumn Term 2018

“Nos enfants de 6, 4 et 2 ans ont tous les trois suivi les cours cet automne et je ne peux que le recommander - Claudia la monitrice est très très bien, hyper pédagogique, Céline qui gère la logistique est super, et Mike s’assure que tout le monde est satisfait. La piscine et l’environnement sont juste ce qu’il faut pour que tout se passe bien. C’est un budget conséquent mais qui vaut vraiment le coup, et on voit vraiment l’évolution avec nos 3! Shortened version in English: great instructor, great staff and great management from Mike, it may be pricier than other lessons but totally worth every penny!” Winter Term - Montreux 2018
