Anyone know of a good place for toddler swim lessons in the western burbs? We're in Wheaton, and I'm really tired of the teenager teachers at the park district that just putz around in the water.. my son's almost 5 and he's made almost no progress in 3 years. (I'm certain his teacher this summer is like 12 years old and is intimidated by my son)

We have a neighborhood pool that I take him to everyday, but I have a 2 year old to hang onto (pool starts at 3 feet) so I can't really teach him on my own, not that I know how to swim properly anyways.

thanks!

I did bear paddle with my youngest. It was too intense for my taste, but everyone I know really like it and claim their kids learn a lot.

We just joined the Wheaton Swim Club. They have age group lessons as well as a really great swim team. My husband was a nationally ranked swimmer, so he's kind of particular about lessons, and the head coach of the WSC is his former teammate. Lessons start tomorrow, so I can't yet speak from experience. I have been a swim instructor for many years, and at least online, their program looks really good!
