Lauren and Lynn Juarez (far L and 3rd from L, respectively) have been teaching swimming lessons since 2001, and Kate joined them in 2005. Over the years, the Juarez trio began to see the need for swim lessons that were geared toward equipping children—especially those under 6 years of age—and not merely entertaining or ‘babysitting’ them, so they began a nationwide search for training options in survival swim lessons for young children. In 2019, they became certified through the Survival Swim Development Network.
Besides being a certified swim instructor, Lynn Juarez has been involved in early childhood education for over 40 years, and owned & operated HaHana Christian Preschool in Lakeside, California from 1983 to 1998.
