YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Construction is under way on a new 8,100-square-foot facility in the Triangle Center, which will be the future home of Goldfish Swim School, a water safety company that offers infant and child swim lessons.

Goldfish Swim School has dozens of other facilities in 23 states and territories in the United States and Canada.

The new Yorktown Heights location at 92 Triangle Center will provide swim instruction to children ages 4 months to 12 years. It will feature small class sizes (max 4-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio) taught by “highly trained” instructors; “shiver-free” 90-degree pools, and a “state-of-the-art” water purification system. Families with kids of different ages and skill levels can have all of their swimmers in the pool during the same half-hour time slot and schedule make-up classes when necessary. Goldfish offers perpetual lessons and families can enroll at any time.

In addition to swim lessons, Goldfish Swim School offers weekly family swims (for both members and non-members) and party packages. Facility highlights include an air-conditioned viewing gallery for parents to watch lessons, a spacious family dressing area with private changing rooms, snack bar, retail shop and warm, tropical decor.

“As parents ourselves, we know how important swim and water safety is to families,” said owner Gillian Graves. “The Goldfish Swim School model is the best one out there and we are thrilled to bring the curriculum, high-quality instruction and state-of-the-art facility to Westchester County. Our team wants to ensure that children have a safe, fun, and friendly place to learn this important, life-saving skill. We can’t wait to welcome families into our facility this summer.”

Goldfish Swim School Yorktown Heights anticipates a summer opening. Families can register for preferred lesson dates and times now by visiting or calling 914-440-3330.

As construction of the facility continues, Goldfish Swim School is also seeking to fill positions for certified swim instructors, deck supervisors, lifeguards and customer service roles.

God Is Just! Schneiderman Is Out!

Whenever you doubt that God is just, remember last Monday. That is the day New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigned.

As you know, I have had him in my sights for a long time. He has squandered our tax dollars with more than 100 lawsuits against the Trump administration. Plus, his lawsuits against Big Oil and trying to nullify our double jeopardy laws. Most will go nowhere as ...

A Scientific Look at Decision-Making

Seven years ago, when I first began sharing my thoughts with you, I posed the question: What are the neurological mechanics of decision-making? I was referring not only to decisions about our actions, but also to the method by which we form our beliefs and preferences, political and otherwise. What inspired that inquiry, at that time, was my observation that our nation was increasingly polarized ...

Bias in Media, in Me, in You

While listening to an interview with a voter on my car radio, I thought I had excess ear wax that obstructed my hearing. The voter (whose name is Bruce) said this about one of the qualifications that a Senate or House candidate must have to earn his vote: “I don’t want anyone with ideas. We have enough of those already.”

I’m a journalist and have been one my entire ...

Cross My Legs and Hope to Die

One morning, I had a big cup of coffee as I usually do, and then I got in the car and drove 40 minutes to a clothing store I had been curious to check out. I don’t normally drive 40 minutes to go shopping, but since I am a stay-at-home mom and everyone knows we stay-at-home moms just spend our time shopping and eating bonbons, I figured, “What the hey.”

Having had the ...

Don’t Mix Politics with Business

May 17, 2018

When every year is an election year, it’s hard to avoid “talking” politics—but business leaders need to try.

The problem is that talking politics changes relationships. You quickly go from business owner or salesperson to Democrat, Republican, etc.

Putting a political sign in front of your business is a clear sign (literally) of your views. Not only do you tell your ...
