Bear Paddle has been awesome with our family. Cristina is our Angel. She was able to help my daughter forget about her fear and we are at level 4.

My kids have attended swim lessons at Bear Paddle Marlton for the past 3 years and I am overwhelmed with the progress they have made over the years. The staff and management have been extremely attentive and accommodating to my family’s needs. I would definitely recommend Bear Paddle Marlton to any family that is seeking quality swim lessons for their children.

We love Bear Paddle! We’ve been going to the Marlton location for over a year now and absolutely love it. We started in the teddy intro class and have been progressing through the program levels nicely. The teachers are great. They really take their time to learn the kid’s names and make sure that they are learning. The owner is great here! He is always around to talk to if needed and even can be seen teaching lessons. We recommend Bear Paddle to everyone we know and look forward to seeing our child progress

Swimming Lesson FAQs

If you have concerns regarding our lessons, schedules, or health protocols, here are some FAQs we compiled for your assurance:
Absolutely. Bear Paddle strictly complies with the health guidelines issued by the Center and Disease Control (CDC). What’s more, the CDC maintains that COVID-19 cannot be transmitted through water.
Our maintenance crew disinfects our facilities regularly. We always clean our floors, tables, sinks, benches, toilets, door handles, and diaper changing stations. For added protection, we provide complimentary hand sanitizers to all our customers to reduce virus transmission.
Yes. Our scheduling process ensures our pools will only have 50 people at any given time. We follow a staggered schedule for limited capacity inside our swim school.

The Bear Paddle maintenance staff measures water chemistry every 30 minutes. We disinfect it using chlorinated water and ultraviolet light to eliminate 99.99% of germs and viruses.

Our pool also uses the Defender Filtration systems powered with Diatomaceous Earth (DE) media. This system can remove particles up to one micron, which is smaller than red blood cells.

By doing this regular disinfection process, we ensure that we’re following the CDC’s recommended health protocols.

First, we encourage you to wear a mask. We won’t allow families or students inside our facility if they come without masks.

We also advise against going to school if you or your family members are sick. You can always contact us to reschedule your child’s swimming lessons. And if you or your child has had close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, please let us know.

Lastly, please follow our social distancing and one-parent-per-child protocols. Doing so will help keep the virus from spreading in our school.
