What our clients are saying

Mindy Says…

“I wanted to send a special thank you to Debbie, Liat and Erin who ALL went above and beyond to make my daughter’s swimming lesson a success yesterday. She went from refusing to get in the water, to sitting on the edge with Liat, to swimming lengths with her instructor. All within a half hour. My daughter has anxiety relating to new experiences and potential failure. Everyone worked together to ensure there was a plan in place she was comfortable with and let her have the sense of control she needed.”

“We love the clean warm salt water pool at Davina’s. As a mother of a parent and tot I thought I would not enjoy the experience of going in the water with my little one, but Davina’s facility is so warm and welcoming I look forward to my class each week. My 18 month loves swimming and is progressing into a little swimmer. She loves jumping, going under and singing songs on her back. Thank you Davina’s Swim House for making this experience memorable.”

“My 4 year old was reluctant to swim. He hated to get his hair wet, wailed when on his back and would not wear goggles. After the 2nd class he was laughing, proud of himself and going under water! He is happy to to come to swim and looks forward to swimming all week. Davina’s Swim House is teaching Liam to swim and be confident in the water. I am ready to enjoy my summer swimming with my son!”
