Our Njswim Culture
How We Roll
At Njswim we believe in the idea of year-round rolling memberships. Students enrolled in Njswim will be led through a series of safety skills that are designed to enhance the aquatic experience and instill self-confidence in a safe and positive atmosphere.
In most locations we offer a rolling school year program September through June and Summer Intensive Programs. We do not offer sessions as we believe that learning happens best when children have continued, guidance, without interruption.
Our rolling platform conveniently allows families to jump in at times that best suit their busy schedules and have spots reserved as they go through the year. We bill for tuition every 4 weeks through automatic funds transfers so you never have to remember to pay your bill, or lose your spot.
There is no long term commitment, no re-registrations and no waiting in line or filling out paperwork session by session. This approach is hassle free for families, easily organizes our administrative processes and best of all, promotes a great learning experience for our swimmers.
Learn to Float Philosophy
Our Learn to Float Philosophy – Means Safety First
Our proprietary “learn to float philosophy” is the cornerstone to our swim teaching progression. Taking a more Zen-like approach to swimming allows our teachers to assist our students in developing proper body position and breath control before learning stroke technique. Our progression is appropriate for all levels and develops a sense of safety and awareness in and around the water.
We Love to Teach Swimming!
We are swim teachers first. Every single Njswim team member, from the owner and founder of the company, the directors and managers are all swim teachers. When we hire and train our deck supervisors and lifeguards, they are automatically enrolled in our Swim Teacher Career path.
Our Clients are Family
We know you have a busy schedule and we know that you value quality. We go the extra mile to make sure that our families come first by giving them a sense of belonging in our program. We have enjoyed being a part of the most critical lessons in a child’s life and we take the extra care and commitment to see our swimmers succeed.
Warm Water and Small Groups
We have been at this for over 30 years and we understand that warm water and small group classes makes for the very best learning environment. Our pools are small by design and so are our student/teacher ratios. These two elements provide for an intimate learning experience.
We are Teachers — not Instructors
We take a gentler, nurturing approach to what can be a very intimidating lesson in a child’s life. Our swim teachers understand that each child is different. Their needs develop and change during the developmental phases of their lives. This approach gives us the advantage in providing a unique learning experience for your family.
Safer Never Safe
There is no way to “DROWN PROOF” a child. Njswim practices the SAFER 3 curricula to help reduce the risk of drowning. Learning to swim properly is the most critical element in preventing drowning.
It Takes Teamwork
For our team, we hire, train and develop the most dynamic, friendly and kind individuals to share and instill the values we uphold. We take great pride in working together and developing a shared commitment to excellence.
Beyond the Pools
Our team members are out in the towns delivering our water safety message through pre-school presentations, community events, and locals clubs. We share our vision and our expertise in an effort to maintain stronger, safer communities.
