I had my daughter in 1 class at North Hills years ago when she was 3 and the pool was always freezing (I took water aerobics at the same time, so was also in the water and it was COLD.) Her lips were always blue at the end of the 30 minutes. When she was 4, they laughed when we got to registration because the class had filled hours before. I have since taken both of my children to the Sewickley YMCA and have never looked back. The cost is about double but class sizes are extremely small and I have been very happy with their program. For kids under 5 (or so), classes are held in the warm water therapeutic pool. NICE!!!

Scott, who was your instructor that you would highly recommend that passed away? I only ask because my favorite instructor passed away as well.

KFS, I believe both places had evening classes as well as weekend classes. Hopefully you can find one that works!

KMul, Thanks for the suggestion on the Sewickley Y....may have to see when their classes are scheduled.

There was a comment that disappeared from Nancy Jo, maybe she deleted it. But I felt bad. I know the NH program works well for many. I know lots of families who like it and sign up year after year. I would never tell anyone not to use the program, but if you asked me if I would go back, I would have to say most likely not. Unfortunately my sessions, like Darci's, were filled with long breaks for Easter followed by several closures due to glass and other incidents that closed the pool. I know this is not the norm. But with that being said, it was not a positive enough experience that I would leave work 2 hours early to go sit in line to get a time slot. My family will continue to support NH any way we can. We will just look elsewhere for swim lessons.
