Preschool Swim Lessons

Preschool Swim Lessons

Preschool swim lessons are a great way to get your child comfortable with water safety and skill. The Harrisburg Area YMCA offers preschool swim lessons for children between the ages of 3-5 years. Swimming lessons can save your child’s life! Preschool swim lessons offer safety, encouragement, and peace of mind for your children. When kids engage in exercise, they gain a better sense of self. The confidence they acquire stems from their newfound abilities in the pool and positive interactions with their peers!

We help children build elementary swimming skills while teaching them to be safe along the way. Children are placed with our trained instructors based on their skill levels.

Our skill levels have recently changed; please refer to the chart below.
