Franchise History

It all started in a pool, but not one of the indoor, 90° pools that tots have come to love over the years. Our mission began in 1991, at a community pool in Tempe, Arizona, where one teenage lifeguard taught one single lesson, and a dream was born. 

At a time when quality childhood swim instruction was a novelty, Ron and Jane Sciarro created a different kind of swim experience. Their mobile swim school traveled the greater Phoenix area to borrowed backyard pools and rented hotel facilities. The Sciarros offered parents a place to be heard, where the water safety goals for their children became more than a wish list, but a reality.

By 2005, the idea of a year-round swim program had made its way into the hearts and minds of parents everywhere, and with the help of Paul and Heather Preston, the first Aqua-Tots Swim Schools location opened in Mesa, Arizona, followed quickly by the first franchise location in 2007.

We value your desire to see your children develop a life-long love for swimming, and we’re committed to teaching children of all ages and abilities the skills they need to become safe and confident swimmers for life.

After all, it’s about so much more than swim lessons. It’s about propelling lives, one swim lesson at a time.
