Cary Family YMCA – Preschool Swim Lessons

The Cary Family YMCA offers swim lessons for toddlers and preschoolers ages 3 to 5.

Beginning preschool swimmers need only to be able to interact in a class setting without a parent. No swim skill is necessary.

YMCA swim instructors use games and repetition to teach children the foundations of basic strokes, floating and how to enter and exit the pool safely.

All preschoolers are evaluated on the first day of class and placed in the class that best meets their current ability.
Children must wear swim diapers if they are not fully potty trained. 

Lifeguards are always on the pool deck during swim lessons.

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