What Parents are Saying About Arcadia Swim for Kids

Tracy Herbst was a highly skilled instructor and I am so grateful for the work she does. Even though this type of instruction is demanding on the child, I could tell my son trusted her. I wish I had taken all of my kids to her, but I'm so glad we decided to do lessons for my youngest. I will not hesitate to recommend Tracy (and already have), as it is clear to me that this work saves lives.

Today is Isaac's last day with Tracy and we are so excited and relieved by the skills he has obtained. Knowing that he instinctively flips over onto his back now and floats is amazing to watch and such a relief. He wasn't the easiest child to work with--he screamed the entire session, every single day, but Tracy was patient and worked with him insistent on making sure he would come away from the lessons with these vital skills. Thank you, Tracy!

We could not be more happy or more impressed with Tracy’s ISR class! Our toddler was floating by week 3 and was proficient in floating by week 4. Tracy kept lessons fun and positive and most days our little one couldn’t wait to get in the water! 


Tracy is a fantastic instructor. We are so lucky to have had her and we will absolutely recommend her to other kiddos in need. 

Tracy Herbst is amazing! In the short two weeks my daughter has already become more comfortable and able to float for short stints. She is even able to roll over back onto her back to float. I couldn’t recommend her enough!


She is amazing. Know how to calm my kids and made it fun for them while at the same time learning how to survive. They both came out with new skills in this refresher.

Tracy is so calm with the kiddos and parents.  I keep returning each year and she’s part of our family!!!

Tracy Herbst was absolutely amazing! She was so knowledgeable and helpful in getting my daughter to be safe in the water. Because of her I feel confident in my daughters ability to float if necessary. In every lesson she strives for the best and always ends on a positive note. She also communicates with parents if they can do anything to help their child in the water and what they do while at home.  


Tracy Herbst is fantastic. She is thoughtful, experienced, and focused on my children's safety. We feel confident and knowledgeable when we leave. Our little two-year-old loves going to see Ms. Tracy.


Tracy Herbst was amazing. She helped my son so much and answered all the questions I have as a mom for safety. He looked forward to going to swim everyday and still asks if he can see “Miss Tracy”. When we started ISR my son would refuse to even get his ears wet or float in the bath tub and had zero swim skills. After only 4 weeks, he is amazing at swim float swim all while fully clothed. I am so thankful and sleep better knowing we have one extra layer to our water safety plan. 


Tracy is an excellent instructor! Clearly explained to me (the parent) what she was teaching my daughter and was incredibly patient with my screaming and crying child. Tracy knows how to create a safe, calm and informative atmosphere while teaching my daughter life saving skills. Best ISR instructor!


Tracy Herbst is truly skilled and patient with young and learning swimmers!  

Tracy has such a calm and patient demeanor. Our son is very comfortable with her! She is very effective at her job!

Excellent experience

Tracy is an incredible ISR instructor. All of my kids learned to swim and float in only a few weeks. She creates a safe, welcoming environment and shows love to all of the kids who come to work with her.
