Aqua-Tots’ Response to Coronavirus

For 29 years, we have been in the business of keeping children and families safe and healthy, and this remains our number one priority while the news of seasonal illness, most significantly coronavirus (COVID-19), gains worldwide attention. With this in mind, we wanted to take a moment to share what we are doing to proactively protect your family from sickness in our schools and to let you know what you can do to keep your local Aqua-Tots family safe and healthy during this season.

One of the unique benefits that Aqua-Tots Swim Schools offers is our make-up lesson policy. As parents ourselves, we understand the need to reschedule swim lessons when life gets busy or children get sick. Because we truly value your family and your overall health and well-being, we encourage you to utilize these make-up lessons if needed. Simply reach out to your local school directly to let them know of your schedule change, and they’ll issue make-up lessons to your account.

What you can do to help:
