    About Goldfish

    Goldfish offers swim classes and other programs for children 4 months to 12 years old. Our developmentally-appropriate curriculum provides top-quality swim lessons coupled with an experience you can't get anywhere else! Being comfortable and confident in the water is of the utmost importance to us. We keep our water temperature at a warm 90 degrees to make the learn-to-swim experience as inviting as possible. With a 4:1 student-to-teacher ratio in our group classes, children get the attention they need in order to advance their comfort and confidence in the water.

    Construction Update

    Construction is underway and we are projecting a January opening. Our facility will be located in Fairview Centre on 21599 Lorain Road -- the same shopping center which houses Giant Eagle and Fairview Lanes.
