Deer Park families love us!

We have had an amazing experience at Bear Paddle/ Aurora with Tyler and his team. My son is autistic and minimally verbal. Tyler was extremely open to my son coming in, meeting the staff, and be introduced to swim lessons. The staff have been extremely patient and given my son a lot of encouragement while learning to swim at his own pace! I love this inclusive environment and will continue to have my son learn to swim there!

My daughter loves it! Very friendly and warming place for kids. Our instructor Lexi is awesome she is very attentive with her students. My daughter has gotten very comfortable with her. We love our experience here at bear paddle.
Marlen Romero
Wonderful experience! The managers Tyler, Bryan and Cassidy are a great team to work with! Their entire staff is also very helpful at all times. My grandson who had a fear of getting in the water is no longer afraid and has turned into a great swimmer. Thank you to everyone at Bear Paddle for the wonderful experience!

Swimming Lesson FAQs

If you have concerns regarding our lessons, schedules, or health protocols, here are some FAQs we compiled for your assurance:
Our swim school’s reliable maintenance team follows a regular disinfecting schedule wherein they thoroughly clean our facility’s surfaces, such as door handles, floors, tables, and toilets. Bear Paddle’s team sanitizes every changing station and shower stall after each swim class. We also provide our students and parents with complimentary hand sanitizers and use ultraviolet filtration systems in our pools.
There is no age requirement to enroll in swimming lessons for kids. Many experts recommend enrolling your children in toddler swim classes as early as possible. Swimmers between the ages of one and four can join group lessons. Conversely, infants between six months to three years can enroll in Bear Paddle’s family lessons.
Bear Paddle’s scheduling system limits more than 50 people from gathering inside our swim school in Deer Park, IL, at any time. Our schedule guarantees the safety of our students, and we ensure that each facility is disinfected and cleaned before, during, and after every 30-minute session. You can find the proper schedule for your children by contacting us.
We recommend bringing an appropriate bathing suit for your children–such as a towel, a swim cap, and a swim diaper if needed. Bear Paddle encourages its students to bring swimming caps to help keep hair away from their faces while swimming. Goggles are also recommended if your child is a first-time swimmer.
