Meg and Greg Kevane are the two fun-loving parents who own the new Goldfish Swim School, opening in May in Fort Washington. After having a fantastic experience themselves, and with Greg’s local roots, they decided to open the school in this area.
The Swim School offers extraordinary swim lessons in a child-friendly environment. They provide instruction to children ages 4 months to 12 years-old in a unique setting with highly trained instructors.
Below are questions we asked of Meg and Greg:
