Research has conclusively shown that babies under a year old deal much better with taking to water than older children. So give your wee one a head start in the swimming stakes, and join in with YMCA Auckland’s baby swim lessons.
For baby swim lessons, the learning experience is just as important for the parent as the child. While your baby develops motor skills, independence and water confidence, you’ll learn important water safety concepts to help your child become safer in and around water. Our teaching facilities are all heated – which means both baby and parent will feel nice and comfortable!
These lessons provide great exercise for little limbs, and parents tend to find that their babies sleep and eat better on swimming lesson days. Each thirty minute class involves games and songs to keep both guardians and tots entertained while developing new, important skills and abilities. All instructors are qualified and lessons are available seven days a week – so no matter what your schedule is like, there’s bound to be a session for you and your new swimmer!
To ensure you receive the highest teaching quality our swim teachers receive on-going training, are AUSTSWIM qualified and are police checked. We have a variety of different teachers to suit your needs
Maximising potential and seeing swimmers progress is important to us. We aim to keep our instructor to student ratios as low as possible to ensure the best learning results.
We understand that schedules can be busy that's why we offer swimming lessons 7days a week. With a number of different options available we are sure to have a class that suits you
YMCA Swim Schools have been recognised recipients for a number of AUSTSWIM Aotearoa awards in 2015 and 2016. Awards include; Swim Centre of the Year, Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety, Teacher of Infant and Preschool and Presenter of the Year.
Before you begin lessons with us we offer a free assessment to ensure your child is in the right level for their development. Throughout the programme children are continually assessed and will be moved up once they have achieved the level goals requirements.
No matter what the weather, we have indoor heated pools perfect for swimming all year round. Our purpose built facilities are designed for ease of use with baby change tables and family changing rooms situated readily on poolside
