The state-of-the-art Aqua-Tots Swim Schools location in Gahanna, Ohio, is ready for children of all abilities to learn how to swim safely in their 90° pool.

GAHANNA, OHIO MARCH 02, 2020 – Aqua-Tots Swim Schools has announced its 108th franchise location now open in the Columbus, Ohio, area of Gahanna and New Albany. Located in the new Target shopping center at State Route 161 and Hamilton Road, Aqua-Tots Gahanna officially opened its doors on Tuesday, February 18, 2020.

Aqua-Tots Swim Schools has been the leader in the swim instruction industry since 1991, offering comprehensive swim curriculum for children from four months to 12 years old. With over 100 locations in 14 countries, families all over the world can experience the dedicated, year-round, indoor swim facility where their children can become safe and confident swimmers.

The 4,800 sq. foot Swim School is the fourth Aqua-Tots location for Franchise Owners Mike and Jill Kallmeyer, who also own locations in Powell, Westerville and Crocker Park, Ohio.

“The Aqua-Tots family is excited to serve the families of Gahanna, New Albany and other eastern neighborhoods of Columbus,” said Mike Kallmeyer. “Our mission is to teach children and their parents the importance of water safety, and we’re proud of the community that we get to serve.”

According to Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, consistency in formal swim lessons reduces the risk of drowning by 88% among children ages one to four.
