Our founder Patti O’Brien loves children and teaching is her passion. She is the mother of six children and her swim school reflects her insightful parent perspective on what is important to and for children of all ages and their parents.
In 1981, while still in high school, Patti announced the opening of Patti’s Swim School by passing flyer’s around her neighborhood. Her mission was to provide lessons for local children and adults. Her students and their families immediately embraced her gentle, supportive, and effective approach.
Word of mouth spread the news that Patti’s was the best and quickest place to acquire swim safety skills. Since 1981, Patti’s Swim School has taught more than 40,000 children and adults to swim.
