Baby swim classes

Our baby swim programme focus on water awareness and water safety, teaching critical skills such as unaided back float and front-to-back rotations.

Your water baby will learn skills beyond being in the water helping balance and stability development, and improved spatial awareness.


Preschool swim classes

Preschool swim classes are the ideal way to get your little one safe and confident in the water.

Preschool swimming lessons specialize in contributing directly to the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of your child.


School age swim classes

School-age swimming lessons are structured to provide a clear path to gaining new skills and progress while being fun and supportive.

Children work their way through learning all strokes as well as key water safety skills – developing good technique and great cardiovascular fitness as they do it.


Safeguarding our tamariki

For years The Y has provided a safe and secure environment, where kids can just be’ and enjoy their time with us. We want to support every parent by not only being a fun place for your kids to be, but also a safe haven where kids’ development is supported and learning is recognised.

The Y is Aotearoa’s first and only accredited organisation through the Australian Childhood Foundation (ACF). We are proud to lead the children’s workforce as a child-safe organisation. Find out more.
