About Marci

Hello everyone and welcome to my website! I am Marci Harmon, founder of Little Fins Swim School, LLC and we recently relocated in northern Indiana. I have taken my passion of swimming to a whole new level by starting Little Fins.

I was a competitive swimmer for 9 years, I started lifeguarding at age 16 and continued doing that when I moved to Orlando from northern Indiana (Notre Dame country, Go Irish!). In 2007 I was offered a position with the Florida Department of Health- Osceola County to be their first Drowning Prevention Coordinator. My job was to inform and educate the residents and visitors of Osceola County about keeping their children safe in and around bodies of water, including bath tubs and buckets. Unfortunately due to budget cuts this position was eliminated in 2009, but my passion for this did not lessen.

"When I first heard about Marci and Little Fins I was dubious that my daughter Kate (2 years and 4 months) would learn how to float/swim in 1 month. However after a 1 week Kate was floating. Marci and the 1 month course were fantastic. Kate will now swim underwater, and when she feels that she is getting into difficulties she turns her self to float on her back. As a family we have much more fun in the pool. Thank you Marci. We are looking forward to the warmer weather to continue her lessons."

I learned about Infant Aquatics through the contacts I had created in Central Florida. I finally decided that I would not truly be happy until I was teaching children how to be safe in and around the water full time. I decided to attend the PediaSwim Academy at Southwest Aquatics with Joy McGinty in October 2010. I am so glad I took the plunge because I thoroughly enjoy what I do each and every day and I look forward to swimming with your child soon! I have been a CPR & First Aid Instructor for the American Heart Association since 2007.


Thank you for visiting and do not hesitate to ask questions!

"Marci is a great instructor and is very patient with the kids. I was amazed when my toddler was floating in the water and laughing with glee at her progress!"

  • Jessica Hillis, Shiloh's mom, Celebration, Florida

"Max has always enjoyed the water but, as an 18-month-old, he needed more than enthusiasm to keep him safe. Marci's expertise, patience and skill have transformed him into a comfortable swimmer, a confident floater and a much safer pool buddy! We think this course is vital - all three of our sons have completed infant swimming at 18 months or younger - and we recommend it without reservation! Thanks, Marci, for your dedication and all you have done."

"We enrolled three of our Daughter's (19 month old Twins, & 3 year old little girls) in Little Fins Swim School this past Summer. Marci Hummell is an amazing and talented Instructor and the girls all learned very quickly under her care. We signed up for the four week program and in just ten, 10 min lessons our Toddler's we're floating on their backs on their own, rolling over and swimming! We can now safely take our four young children to the pool and they really enjoy swimming and have soo much confidence thanks to their new skills. My Husband and I are beyond thrilled with the results, and feel it was well worth our time/money invested in the program. We have tried other programs in the past and there is no comparison. We highly recommend Little Fins to anyone who wants their little ones to learn survival skills/ swimming quickly!!!"
