I know Spring Break just ended, but Summer will be here before we know it. Now is a great time to get your little ones registered for swimming lessons.

Top 3 Parent Approved Swimming Lessons:

1. McDowell Swimming Lessons

Referrals Only, so ask around for more information. They have been giving lessons for 35 years!

2. Aqua Angels Waco

If you are like me and your children are too young for the McDowell duo, I strongly and highly recommend our swim teacher Donna Minor. Donna owns Aqua Angels, which is operated out of her home and pool in Lorena. Her lessons this summer start May 8th and she teaches age 6 months to 6 years old.

Starting early was especially important to my husband and me since we live on a small lake. We felt it was very important to get these survival skills at a younger age, just in case. We’ve taken both our girls to Aqua Angels and plan to take our son next summer. You have probably seen these infants on Facebook or in YouTube videos and haven’t believed it, but the video I posted is my own daughter, Brinkley, at the end of her lessons (at 8 months old). She is fully clothed with shoes, socks, diaper, and all, surviving a “fall” in the pool. Pretty amazing! It was hard to watch, but the way Donna moves them slowly into this survival technique helps me sleep better at night knowing if they accidentally fall into our lake they can flip over, call for help, and won’t panic and drown. Donna is amazing and having the piece of mind and confidence in my girls being able to survive an accidental fall in our lake or a pool has been worth every penny! You can contact Donna Minor at

3. YMCA of Central Texas
