We provide swimming lessons all year round, in our indoor and heated pool. We have swimming classes for all ages and abilities, from babies and toddlers, through to Preschool, School Age, Squads and Adult lessons. Whether you or your child is a total beginner or an experienced swimmer, we will have the right swimming class for you. Our teachers and coaches are fully trained and experienced, delivering fun and innovative lessons, following our own unique program. The Dean Greenwood Swim School has been providing high-quality swimming lessons for over 20 years, we currently have 4 locations across Auckland.

We have times that suit your schedule, with no long waitlists. We believe in a flexible approach to swimming lessons. We know how hard it can be to juggle children’s activities, so you are free to change lessons whenever you need. We also offer catch up lessons for missed lessons due to illness. Therefore, you should never miss a lesson, even during the winter months, as when you are feeling better we will arrange another lesson for you, at no extra cost.

All our learn to swim lessons are 30 minutes long, even Babies and Preschool. We believe a 20-minute lesson is too short for children to fully get the most out of their lesson. We are committed to providing an exceptional customer experience, for swimmers and parents.
