Imagine Swimming lessons are tailored to fit your child's individual needs. Regardless of age or ability, we strive to find the right class that best facilitates safe fun and joyful, natural learning.

Our Lessons

At Imagine, you will not find rigid levels and checklist teaching, but rather lessons that are constantly adapted and structured around the fluid development of every young swimmer. We strive for 40 "active" minutes. In too many programs, children are sitting on the sidelines for large portions of lessons, regardless of the activity.

The "Classic" Imagine class has a 1:4, 1:2 & 1:1 teacher/student ratio. We believe this class size provides the highest quality atmosphere for both skill development and social interaction. At Imagine, there are never more than four children in a group class.

** Please note, due to Covid-19 classes have been reduced to 35 minutes to allow 5-minute transitions between groups.


Regular Class: $50 per class. All scheduled lessons billed monthly.

Semi-Private: $97 per class. All scheduled lessons billed monthly.

Private: $138 per class. All scheduled lessons billed monthly.


$50 (paid after trial upgrade). Billed annually.

Parent & Me

Imagine's Parent & Me program begins at 4-months and continues until children turn three. Within this time period, parents are present in the water, guiding children into the aquatic world. Teaching basic water comfort and instinctual safety forms the core of these early lessons. Our Parent & Me classes are also musically-themed, as we introduce the rhythm and timing of basic movements in the water. These lessons take place at our Flagship pools (4 months - 36 months).

Weekly Tuition

Like our regular lessons, these classes are $50 per class.


$50 (paid after trial upgrade). Billed annually.

Intensive Lessons

Imagine's 'Intensive Lessons' are 55-minute classes offered on holidays and school breaks, making them an excellent opportunity to keep your child active on days off from school. Similar to our regular lessons, but super-sized to an hour, our goal is to enhance every swimmers' comfort and ability in the water while also offering unique challenges, such as 'a clothed swim', meant to simulate scenarios where a child falls into the water while dressed.

Once younger, less experienced children gain the trust and confidence to work with our instructors, more technical skills are introduced, with a focus on breath control, body position, and propulsion in the water. For children who already have a solid swimming foundation, technique and endurance is also a theme of intensive classes.
