There's a Y Swim School near you

Keep your child water safe for life with The Y's pre-school swim lessons

At The Y (formerly YMCA) Swim School we believe to give your kids an early boost to independence, water safety and swimming skills 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 Pre-school Swimming Lessons introduce structured learn to swim progressions with a strong emphasis on water safety.

Pre-school Swimming Lessons

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, The Y has the facilities to get your family splashing and swimming safely.
