Cary Family YMCA – Preschool Swim Lessons

The Cary Family YMCA offers preschool progressive swim lessons for ages 3 - 5. These swim lessons are taught year round. 

The YMCA has a low child-to-instructor ratio. YMCA swim instructors are trained to work with younger children and lifeguards are always on the pool deck during swim lessons. Parents are welcome to watch swim lessons from the pool deck.

The YMCA uses class levels to ensure your preschooler is placed according to his/ her ability. All children are evaluated on the first day of class and placed in an appropriate level class.

The Cary Family YMCA is located off Cary Parkway between High House Road and Old Apex Road.
