Who We Are

Have you wondered, “Where can I find a swim school near me?” Little Otter Swim School is North Carolina’s leading swim school for infants, toddlers and older kids — serving babies to 12-year-olds.

Practicing a model of safety first, fun every second, we’re here to make learning to swim so enjoyable that children forget they’re in swim school! Come to either of our North Carolina locations, in Huntersville or Matthews, which serves the greater Charlotte area, and watch your child experience the joy of confidence in the water.

Our Classes

At Little Otter Swim School, we’ve designed our play-based learning to take place in 30-minute classes, once a week. All curriculum is based on age first and skill level second.
