Swymfit Swim Lessons for Kids

Our Swymfit Lesson Program is based on the Red Cross "Learn-to-Swim" model

2 kids swim lessonSigning your child up for swimming lessons is truly a gift that you give to your child. Swimming is an activity that offers a lifetime of safety, fun, AND fitness!

Watch your child become more confident in the water while making new friends. Each weekly lesson is a half-hour long. Class sizes are kept small to ensure that each swimmer will get enough personal attention. 

Limited openings for Private and Semi-Private lessons may also be available upon request.

The program follows a progression of levels, based on ability. Your child can start in the appropriate level. If you are unsure of the proper level for your child, please call the Swymfit Front Desk at 978-635-0500 and we will be happy to schedule a complementary evaluation.

5 Children per Class

For children ages 18-36 months with parent or caregiver in the water with child. Adults learn how to hold child properly in the water, while tots learn to kick properly on stomach and back, to paddle on stomach, to blow bubbles correctly, to wait for the parent to tell them it is okay to enter the water safely, and to splash around. Students also learn how to float on front and back with support, and how to use a noodle the proper way. We sing songs in the water at the beginning and end of each class. Have fun in the water with your little one!
