Get ready to swim with baby or toddler with our infant and toddler swim lessons! Enjoy special time with your little one as children ages 2-4 learn the basic water safety and skills—blowing bubbles and kicking—to get them ready for more advanced swimming.

The Y is considered America's swim instructor. Every year, children and adults learn swimming skills and water safety at the West Suburban YMCA.

Our lessons follow YMCA of the USA’s national safety and core skill development standards, and are based on the development abilities of each participant. Swimmers learn basic skills that build on one another as the levels increase. They also learn about water safety, water sports, games and rescue.

Small class sizes allow for one-on-one instruction, and private lessons are available. All classes are taught by nationally-certified instructors who provide praise and encouragement. Whether it’s learning how to swim, perfecting your stroke or staying fit, the Y has a program that’s right for you.

We follow the YMCA Progressive Swimming program in all of our instructional classes.

If you are uncertain about which level you should register for, please contact the Aquatics Department at (617) 244-6050 x3650 for more information or to schedule a swimming test.
