A new swimming school for children is opening up in Beavercreek near the new Aldi grocery store and Hobby Lobby.

The facility is an indoor, year-round pool, separated from the lobby by glass walls. The lobby also has wi-fi and a play area for siblings who are not taking a class. Classes have a low student-to-teacher ratio, according to a company statement.

“Miami Valley waterways are among the state’s most beautiful and cherished amenities, but too often the draw of sparkling water can lead to tragedy for children and adults who don’t know how to swim,” Sinopoli said. “Whether a child learns to swim through Aqua-Tots or another qualified program, the most important thing is that they learn to swim.”
