    We come here for swim lessons regularly and my boys enjoy their teachers. The swim instructors are patient and attentive. They give the children turns receiving individual attention while the others watch and splash. My kids look forward to their half hour lesson each week.

    When we come for family swim, there are toys, big floaters, kick boards and life jackets available. There is a little slide for younger children. The water is such a comfortable temperature. The showers are hot (but not enough to burn).

    Best facilities in town! My kids like to hangout at the break room when waiting from one another. Snacks, water, heating, and especially teachers, top notch!!

    Update: Vecova did follow up as indicated below and refunded our swim lessons. The guy I talked to on the phone was very easy to talk to and professional. It sounds like they will be talking to the instructors about how to handle kids who don't want to put their face in the water.

    This review is based on the Sea Otter (preschool) swim lessons for my 4 year old. The instructors were terrible with my son.. so terrible that I'm not even going to finish his last 3 swim lessons. It appeared that the ratio for the 3-5 year old swim lesson was 6:1, but the class typically had a 4:1 ratio. The last class was only 20 minutes of lessons and 10 minutes of playtime. My son may have received 3 minutes of instruction. The class was typically 25 minutes with no or 5 minutes of play time. The rest of the time was spent sitting on the stairs waiting (which he seemed to enjoy). This was my son's first un-parented swim lesson. The first male instructor powerfully dunked my son after my son repeatedly told him not to... it left a lasting negative impression with my son and the first instructor destroyed any trust. The next class we had a different instructor. I told her what happened and that my son was nervous about putting his face in the water. She didn't push him or dunk him, but he was still upset about the first lesson and was nervous doing things that he previously LOVED to do with me (i.e. float on his back, swim with a pool noddle, etc...). My son is vocal and every time she told the kids to put there face in the water, he very vocally said he did not want to do that. When she went to get him he would walk out of the pool. She angrily asked me very loudly "DOES HE HAVE ANXIETY?!?" She wasn't as mean to the other 3 year old (not vocal) who kept getting out of the pool also. The next class and our last class, she was mean, snippy and impatient with my son. "YOUR IN SWIM LESSONS, BUD!!!" "RELAX!!!" she angrily shouted. The instructors have very short fuses. He did end up putting his face in the water but it had to be on his terms. Apparently children are supposed to OBEY strangers all the time even when they are scared or perhaps the instructors don't think children are human and have real feelings. Regardless, both instructors were horrible with my son. Two of the other non vocal, obedient, and not scared kids seemed to do fine. The nervous kids did not. The instructors are not good at teaching kids in this age group.

    The other challenge I have with this place is it takes more time to drive there than the actual lesson and there is no way to extend the lesson as the pool was occupied after the swim lessons. My son loves water and wants to actually swim so a half an hour is too short.

    The only pro to this place is that the water is warm.

    This place has everything a child could want, a warm pool, snacks at the bar, a fish tank, and a gym. I go to this place for cadets, and I am liking it more and more.
