We were recommended DACA, by a happy mom, who has had both her kids learn Swimming at DACA, and we love the experience last 3 yrs now. Pool is very clean and well maintained, the teachers are Excellent, especially Sonya. My 6 yr old just reached the deep pool level recently, with fee of $93 per month, and class size no more than 4 kids per instrutor, the environment is very motivated and kids learn proper swimming, with structured methodology 25 mins and 5 mins free play.
My stranger anxiety stricken 3 yr old, was very difficult wailing child, but the staff at DACA were very understanding, they let us try 2 or 3 different instructors, till my son adjusted with Sonya, she took up the challenge and thanks to her persistent effort, now 4 months later, my 3 yr old earned 2 ribbons.
We highly recommend DACA, if you want less crowd, take your pre schooler during school hours weekdays and early morning, for school goers. There's a reason for so much crowd though! Lots of happy satisfied customers!
