30 Aug The Best of NYC: Swim Lessons for Kids
Learning to swim is not only fun, it’s an important life skill. Here we are sharing some of the very best swim classes in NYC for kids of all ages and stages.
Manhattan & Brooklyn
Imagine Swimming is New York City’s premier learn-to-swim school! We are committed to instilling a love of the water for life. Safety, of course, comes first, but at Imagine it’s not just about surviving in water, it’s about thriving in it. It’s about fostering a lifelong passion for swimming. When people ask What makes Imagine different? The answer is simple: It’s the teachers! We are focused on creating small aquatic classrooms where every lesson is unique, with every child on a different path of improvement. Diversity defines our teaching staff, just as it defines the city we live in. International and creative, unconventional and innovative, Imagine Swimming reflects the spirit of New York City.
Learning to swim is a process that depends on the mastery of a progression of skills. We crafted our swim class curriculum to help swimmers of all ages and skill levels master the five developmental components of swimming: comfort, coordination, technique, endurance and speed.
We offer swim classes in a variety of formats—with social distancing and COVID-19 safety protocols in place, including small group classes, parent-infant classes and one-on-one private lessons. Our swim instruction classes begin as early as four months old and go all the way to adults.
REACHswim is an all-inclusive learn to swim program geared toward children with unique needs, their siblings, and allies. Children of all abilities and needs are welcome: from autism spectrum disorder, down syndrome, intellectual & physical disabilities, as well typically developing children.
Our mission is simple: to provide quality water safety / swim lessons to children of all abilities and needs in a nurturing, small class environment.
