DONNA'S DOLPHINS SWIM SCHOOL
If group swim lessons just aren't cutting it for your child, Jet the folks at Donna's Dolphins work their magic. Teachers are energetic, fun and full of patience. Several staffers have a knack for working with special-needs children, including those who, like mine, have sensory issues. Each lesson ends with free time, your child's choice of a prize and the ceremonial adding of stickers to a motivational chart. What's more kid-friendly than that?
