Swimtastic Swim School has taught thousands of children how to love the water, and now it’s time for your kiddo to jump in! Swimming is an important life skill, and swimming lessons for children help kids stay safer in and around water. But why is water safety so important? Unfortunately, the number one cause of accidental death in children under four is drowning. It’s a frightening statistic, but the good news is that swimming lessons make a big difference.
At Swimtastic Fort Myers, we make learning to swim fun and stress-free. Parents love our easy registration process and flexible, year-round lesson schedule. Young swimmers feel comfortable learning new skills in our warm water pools. And, kids and parents alike appreciate our small class sizes, individual attention, and professional, loving team.
Swimming is fun and empowering, but it’s also an essential life skill that will make your kids safer when they’re taking a bath, playing in the pool or at the beach, trying to make a splash at a backyard pool party, and anywhere else there’s water.
Regardless of your swimmer’s goals, all children can benefit from learning how to be stronger and safer swimmers. Every Swimtastic Fort Myers teacher is an experienced swimmer with a passion for teaching, and they’ll work with your family to find the perfect class that meets your needs.

Our small group classes are scheduled weekly on a perpetual basis (same day and time each week). Up to 4 students per class. Students are grouped by skill level and similar age ranges.
In our Intermediate class levels (Intermediate 1-3), swimmers continue building on their safety skills while developing their freestyle side breathing and backstroke technique (Intermediate 1). Swimmers progress to learning breaststroke and ultimately accomplishing the butterfly stroke (Intermediate 3).

Our small group classes are scheduled weekly on a perpetual basis (same day and time each week). Up to 4 students per class. Students are grouped by skill level and similar age ranges.
Private lessons are available for all skill levels and are a great option for those looking to progress or refine skills quickly. Classes are typically scheduled on a weekly, ongoing basis.
Semi-private lessons are available for all skill levels and are a great option for siblings or friends to be in the same class. Classes are typically scheduled on a weekly, ongoing basis. Swimmers are typically required to book with their semi-private class partner.
