1. Tell us a little bit about your business:

Children of the Sea offers year-round swim lessons for babies 4 months to approximately 10 years of age. Our staff takes pride in our unique and innovative water safe program. We believe that each child can learn to love and respect the water.

We offer 11 levels that are broken down into a baby program, water safety program and stroke program. Our baby and toddler levels (4 months-35 months) offer a chance for parents to bond with their baby. We teach parents how to properly and confidently hold their baby in the water while working on floating, gliding, reaching out, and submerging. The water safety program (3 years and up) works on getting wet, swimming, rolling over and being safe in and around the water. The stroke program teaches the four competitive swim strokes.

2. How did your company get started?

Children of the Sea was founded in the early eighties by owner, Lynne Zavrski. She started teaching private lessons in her backyard and then in pools around Oahu, Hawaii. In 1996, she opened Children of the Sea in Portland, Oregon. We just celebrated our 22nd anniversary!

3. Why are you excited about partnering with FIT4MOM?

Being a private swim facility, we are excited to promote recreational activities with FIT4MOM. Just as FIT4MOM inspires children to “emulate their moms and make fitness a part of their lives,” we promote swimming to get kids active, have fun, and learn safety in the water. It is amazing to see the confidence and swim ability children gain as they progress through our program.
