Just wanted to drop a quick note to thank you for making the Baby Otter swim program available to us at our recent visit to the Club Med at Port St. Lucie! We had an amazing experience with Mindy from Baby Otter. We enrolled our 4.5 year old daughter, who had never swam before and was frankly pretty scared of the water. She unfortunately couldn’t complete the program as she got sick on our last day (also the 5th and final day of the program), but the progress we saw was unbelievable. She screamed bloody murder during the first session but couldn’t wait to get back in the pool the following days (and now loves the water!). Random people were literally coming up to give her high fives the 2nd day given the transformation they witnessed overnight. Our only regret was not being able to enroll our 2.5 year old son, who was sick (of course) for a good portion of the trip and did not recover in time to participate in the program. I’ve never seen a program quite like it at other resorts / destinations, and I’m so happy we “discovered” it this summer. Can’t wait to enroll both kids next time we’re back!
Thank you Marlene and Baby Otter Swim School for a fantastic experience during our recent stay at Club Med Sandpiper. As a pediatrician I’m very worried about drowning because I know it is one of the leading causes of death in toddlers. As a mom of three including at 2.5 year old adventurous boy I’m scared what will happen when despite my best efforts I look away for a second. The signs about Baby Otter Swim School when I got to Club Med interested me and I’m so glad I called. The results were amazing. If you drop my son into the pool he will turn, kick and reach for the wall. And I was surprised at how he quickly he went from being scared with the lessons to enjoying them. He was telling everyone on the plane that if he fell into the pool he would “turn, kick and reach”.
Thank you. It was worth every penny! When we come back to Club Med we will be signing up for the refresher class for sure.
The type of instructors you hope your child will experience through his/her life in all areas; knowledgeable, kind, caring, patient, and passionate for their subject matter. Whats so wonderful about this program is that their work is saving lives and building confidence in the little ones they teach to swim. Highly recommend!
