Get your kids confident around water with our swimming classes for pre-schoolers aged 3 - 5 years.
Toddlers and preschoolers are adventurous, learning and discovering new things every day. Building on water confidence, our Preschool Swimming Lessons introduce structured learn to swim progressions with a strong emphasis on water safety.
In the preschool programme – our swimming classes get kids learning all sorts of new things – entering a pool safely, turning around, kicking to the side, rolling onto their backs and floating or swimming to the side of the pool. Parents and guardians actively watch from poolside while an experienced in-water instructor teaches the class.
There are five levels to the preschool programme, and little swimmers progress through the levels according to ongoing assessments by their instructors. So from swimming lessons for toddlers to those for kids nearly ready for school, YMCA Auckland have the facilities to get your family splashing and swimming safely.
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
