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.

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 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.
$49 per class. All scheduled lessons billed monthly.
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 TriBeCa Flagship pool (4 months - 36 months).
Like our regular lessons, these classes are $49 per class.
For infants ages 8 weeks to 4 months, we offer Baby Splash classes, tuition free. This program is designed to orient parents and infants to the water together, in a soothing, low-pressure environment.
Early, consistent exposure to the water can significantly speed up a little swimmer's learning curve. Studies show that early infant swimming lessons offer many other benefits as well, including accelerated brain development, early socialization, and improved motor coordination.
$25 (paid at time of registration)
$21, includes one swim diaper, and one Happy Nappy diaper cover.
Intensive Pod Lessons
With schools in a state of flux, featuring smaller class sizes and a mix of in-person and remote learning, we understand that schedules have never been more varied. We further recognize that you are likely searching for activities where your kids and their closest friends and classmates can participate together, in a closely controlled environment.
