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.

It Was the Economy That Got Trump Elected

I am not easily shocked by much anymore. Yet, I was by last week’s column by fellow columnist Bernie Kosberg.

Challenging the Norm

In his thoughtful work, “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions,” Thomas Kuhn reflects on the revolutionary contributions of such giants as Copernicus, Newton, Darwin and Einstein. But he is quick to remind us that it’s often the scientists whose names we never hear of who make the vast majority of scientific progress. These hardworking men and women spend most of their waking ...

BOCES… What’s in a Name?

Do you ever wonder what BOCES stands for? We associate the name with a center of learning that supplements the general curriculum of local high schools by teaching students specialized trades. Beyond that, does everyone in the non-BOCES population, those who have no direct connection to the programs, fully appreciate the priceless value it brings to our communities’ young adults and their ...

Dog Allergies, Part Deux

“I have some good news and I have some bad news,” I told my husband.

“Give me the good news first.”

“OK. The vet doesn’t think the dog’s ear infections are from a food allergy after all, so we don’t have to keep feeding him that hypo-allergenic food,” I said.

“Hallelujah,” shouted my husband. He was understandably ...

Postcard Criticisms Were Valid

May 23, 2018

In an article from the May 1 issue (“Yorktown Councilmembers Receive ‘Disturbing’ Postcards”), Councilman Ed Lachterman said he was “disturbed” to receive a colored postcard from a constituent. He seems confused as to what it might mean.

I did not write that rainbow-colored postcard, but I can try to help him out of his confusion, because I and plenty ...
