From Cold Fish to Goldfish! Open House THIS Saturday

They had me at WARM WATER.   Welcome to the hood, Goldfish!   We're excited to announce there's a new option in town for high quality kids' swim classes.   Come by and check 'em out THIS Saturday at their open house and see for yourself.  

If you're like me, it's important to you that your kids have at least a grasp of the basics of swimming.   We live on a glorious, giant lake, surrounded by sweet water parks and plentiful water play options.   Still, park district classes fill instantly and are tough to get into.  

We've had swim classes through the parks and the local Y, and the water was always dauntingly cold.  Now we're ready to go for the gold.   We'll have a photo filled recap after the grand opening, and a review of their classes that my own kids are just beginning.   Check back with ChiIL Mama in the very near future. We'll be offering a rockin' Goldfish Swim Lessons giveaway for our readers, too!!


The new Goldfish Swim School in Roscoe Village (in the same facility as IK Gymnastics is officially open for business and welcoming little swimmers into their state-of-the-art facility!
