All instructors are infant, child and adult Red Cross CPR and 1st Aid Certified. Instructors all have lifeguard and competitive swim backgrounds as well. The Lil’ Guppies staff has vast experience working with diverse ages, backgrounds, skill levels and the special needs of children. Our instructional philosophy is one of patience, fun, creativity, positive reinforcement and of course-SAFETY. All staff has been trained under the supervision and direction of owner and lead instructor, Amy Diamond. Lil’ Guppies functions under the philosophy that every student is unique, learns in different ways and progresses on their own timeline! We continually strive to remain flexible and responsive to the needs of each individual student in order to achieve the goals expected. We bring toys and other necessary equipment to our lessons in order to provide a fun, encouraging, relaxed and enjoyable learning experience for all!
