Goldfish Swim School Announces New Florida Location
Goldfish Swim School Franchising has signed an agreement to grow the brand in Florida, with the state’s eighth location slated to open in the city of Winter Garden in late 2023.
Goldfish Swim School provides swim lessons and water safety instruction to infants and children aged four months to 12 years using a research-based philosophy called The Science of SwimPlay.
The new school will be the second in the Orlando area for the local husband-and-wife team Gina Jacobs Thomas and Jon Thomas, who opened their first school in June 2017.
As parents, the duo’s mission is to educate families about the importance of water safety and to meet the demand for quality swim lessons as Florida leads the nation in drownings.

“Living in Florida, Jon and I feel a unique responsibility to help more children learn the important life skill of swimming and being safe in and around the water,” says Jacobs Thomas. “We look forward to being able to serve even more families within the central Florida community with our new school.”
The new Goldfish Swim School in Winter Garden will create approximately 50 part-time and full-time jobs.
“Gina and Jon are ideal franchise owners to expand the Goldfish Swim School brand in the Winter Garden community because of their passion and commitment to kids and water safety,” says Chris McCuiston, CEO and co-founder of Goldfish Swim School.
