ABOUT Shady Nook Swim School

Originally named for a popular swimming hole near Glenmora, LA, Shady Nook Swim School has been in continuous operation each summer since 1978. Durning this time, the mission of the school has been to teach children three years and up to learn to swim in a classroom format. Begun by Linda Monroe, a public school classroom teacher and an expert swimmer; she employed classroom teaching techniques with water knowledge and safety, preparing students to move through the various levels of swimming accomplishments (Beginner I (3 to 4 year olds) through Advanced Swimmers). Linda has been assisted through the years by her daughter Kris, her son Madison, and now Granddaughters Marcy and Karissa.
