For all the families and their precious children I decided to use my free time to create a directory of school choice for all of you. It is not healthy for children to be denied an education, swimming lessons or to be forced to wear a mask on their face. In fact denying young children the ability to see facial expressions actually limits their abilty to learn language. This is child abuse. I want all families with young children to know that there are really great choices that will help your children get back to normal. Link to Directory


The California Public Education system is failing our children.

Curriculums are being written by political activists that are designed to indoctrinate students; and to promote a political agenda that seeks to normalize pedophilia and decriminalize child sex trafficking.

The new Comprehensive Sexual Health Education curriculum is not medically accurate, not age appropriate, and actually encourages students to engage in behaviors that can harm them.

Why I published this Directory Help save 47,000 students in our community by helping families find better educational opportunities outside the public education system.

What to Wear

All children age 3 and under are REQUIED to wear a plastic pant with elastic waste and elastic leg. Many swim suits now build this into their suit. For children that are not potty trained put a disposable swim diaper on them and then the plastic pant over the top. A well fitting plastic pant prevents any water from going in and out of the pants and prevents accidents that force the closure of the pool. The best "wet suit" for really young children is a fleece pajama over the top. Finally- Stick Sunscreen is the best for a child's face because it does not run in their eyes.

I love water!

... so much that all my life friends and family have called me fish.

Aquatics has always been a big part of my life, from jumping in the pool at age 2, to swimming competitively through college. I earned my degree in health and physical education and followed this doing graduate work in excercise science & sports medicine.

I love that teaching swimming gives me a chance to share my love of water and to teach a skill that will be used for an entire lifetime. It's important to me to have a positive impact on children and adults by enabling them to love to learn to swim and be water safe.

Whether it is teaching beginners or helping experienced swimmers with stroke technique, I look forward to sharing my skills.

I am a certified Redcross WSI (Water Safety Instructor) and Lifeguard. I am also certified in CPR and First Aid.


Water safety is a priority of mine. I strive to give everyone I teach the confidence to master swimming, and experience the enjoyment that comes with swimming.

In 2001, I became a Certified Lifeguard and Swim Instructor. I’m also certified in CPR and First Aide. Little did I know that a hand full of those students that I’ve taught would go on to join their high school swim team. Some have become lifeguards and swim instructors right here at Crown Valley Pool.

Students I’ve taught range in age from 6 mos. to 75 years young.

My wish is that everyone young and old could enjoy the water as much as I do.


Founder of Wild Child Water Play. I started this play based learn to swim program for my children fourteen years ago; because I wanted my children to be strong swimmers, and love the water as much as I do. In addition to the Wild Child Water Play program, I swam competitively through college. I have taught swimming lessons and Coached for over 30 years. My specialty is infants and toddlers. I have been teaching and developing the Wild Child Infant/Toddler program for 14 years. I am also a Red Cross trained Water Safety Instructor and hold a current Red Cross CPR/First Aid for Coaches certification. Wild Child Water Play is a member of the National Swim School Association.

Just add H20 and I am happy!

My name is Zoe Shor, I am a WSI certified swim instructor and I love the water. I am 17 years old and I have been jumping into the waves and pool (or being pushed by my older brother) since before I could walk. I spent many years swimming on the Mission Viejo Nadadores swim team until recently when I decided to trade the water for the bright lights of the stage. I became a swim instructor because not only do I wish to help students grow in the water and learn how to swim, but I also desire to help them find joy in swimming and love being in the water. Just as Dory says in Finding Nemo, “Just keep swimming!”


Hi! I’m Ashley. I’m a certified water instructor and I have been swimming since I was in diapers! I’ve swam competitively with Gators Swim Club for many years, swam varsity every year on my high school swim team, and played water polo with Alliance Aquatics! I am so excited to pass on my knowledge and joy of swimming that I have gained over my many years in the pool to new swimmers. My priority is to make learning to swim enjoyable and safe! 


I have been around water all my life and love to swim. Starting at 3 years old, I began taking swim lessons at Crown Valley Pool and was taught how to swim by amazing instructors. I learned about water safety and how to swim competitive strokes as well. These swim lessons trained me well to swim competitively on swim team. I have been working with the City of Laguna Niguel as a certified lifeguard and swim instructor for the past six years and now teach at the same pool I took lessons at. Teaching others about being water safe and learning how to swim has become a passion of mine. I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and love of water with all of you!

I am certified with the American Red Cross as a Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor, which includes being certified in CPR and First Aid.
