About Goldfish Swim School

With locations in Middletown and Manalapan, Goldfish Swim School provides indoor, year-round swim instruction to children ages 4 months to 12 years-old in a safe, family-friendly setting with highly trained instructors, small class sizes (max 4:1 student to teacher ratio), shiver-free 90-degree pools, and a state-of-the-art water purification system. Goldfish Swim School’s renowned proprietary curriculum, The Science of SwimPlay®, helps to build life skills both in and out of the water using play-based learning in a fun and safe environment.

Goldfish uses a perpetual lesson model so families can enroll at any time and kids progress through the curriculum at their own pace. Goldfish offers convenient scheduling options and families can easily book makeup classes when necessary.

In addition to swim lessons, Goldfish Swim School offers weekly family swims (for both members and non-members) and party packages. Facility highlights include an air-conditioned viewing gallery for parents to watch lessons, individual/private changing rooms, a blow dry station, snack bar, retail shop and warm, tropical décor.
