Florence families love us!

I highly recommend Bear Paddle swim school in Florence, KY! Not only did the instructors and manager take the time to know and understand our child, they implemented several strategies to ensure he was comfortable and successful in the water. After all, swimming is a life skill that can be very scary for a child and our little man was no exception to that rule. I appreciated the patience the instructors extended to our son. We went in with the hope that he would lean life-saving water survival skills and here we are watching him lean swim strokes! Thank you Bear Paddle Florence! We are forever grateful!

We LOVE bear paddle! One daughter loves the water and the other not so much. After a few lessons and a lot of patience from the instructors she is finally comfortable enough to stay in the water! Our kids are around multiple bodies of water so learning to swim is really important to us and we couldn’t thank bear paddle enough for all the guidance they’ve provided and not giving up on our stubborn kid! Taylor is amazing! Even though she isn’t our instructor she has been with us from day 1 providing guidance and reassurance that we will get there! Would definitely recommend! We look forward to swim time every week!

Started my daughter here at 6 months old (now 17 months old). It's amazing how much she can actually do already as far as swimming. She kicks and paddles with flotation. She loves her time here every week. They actually teach children how to swim and techniques that will come in handy if they were to fall into a pool (swim toward wall, flip to breathe etc.). The staff is great! They are always friendly and ready to answer any questions you have. Highly recommend.
