Survival Swim Lessons in Northeastern New Jersey

We don’t just teach swim lessons. We teach water survival skills. Our curriculum-based program begins with the foundation of water survival first, followed by learn-to-swim programs. And while our students recognize that swimming is a lifelong, lifesaving skill, we also make learning exciting through a structured program of songs, games and fun!

Discover why more than 40,000 delighted parents nationwide choose British Swim School for their children’s swimming lessons week after week. Here’s what sets us apart:

✅ Independent floating from day one: Floaties are not used in our program. Children learn to float independently right from the beginning, developing vital skills without relying on assistance. This is a fundamental aspect of our program.

✅ Exceptionally trained instructors: Our instructors undergo extensive in-house training exceeding 60 hours, ensuring they are the best in the industry.

✅ Unparalleled safety and survival focus: Witness our “Survival Week,” where children learn to swim fully clothed, preparing them for real-life accidents. Our program emphasizes safety and survival skills like no other.

✅ Structured and goal-oriented curriculum: Our highly structured curriculum empowers students to progress rapidly and graduate individually when they are ready.

✅ Engaging and gentle instruction: Our classes are designed to be enjoyable, and our instructors are trained to be gentle and nurturing with students.

✅ Small group sizes: With a beginner-to-instructor ratio of 1:4 and a maximum of 6:1 for stroke development, we ensure personalized attention and optimal learning environments.

✅ Continuous enrollment: We offer ongoing classes, allowing for flexible enrollment without the constraint of sessions.

✅ Time-tested program: With over 40 years of teaching experience and thousands of satisfied swimmers nationwide at over 400 pools, our program has proven its effectiveness and reliability.

✅ Comprehensive age range: Our program welcomes students from as young as 3 months old to adults, catering to all age groups.

✅ Year-round heated indoor pools: Enjoy swimming lessons regardless of the season in our comfortable and heated indoor pool facilities.

How Much Do Our Swim Lessons Cost?

Our payment system involves a monthly fixed fee that varies by location, and an annual membership fee of $49 for an individual or $60 for a family. Each pool location has its own specific weekly rate, which you can discover by selecting your preferred pool below or visiting our pricing page overview. Upon registration, you will be enrolled in a 30-minute small group class, consistently held at the same time every week. There are no specific sessions; You can start any time, and once registered, you will remain enrolled until you provide us with a written notice via our British Swim School app.

All of our locations, except for the following two, offer classes for all skill levels, catering to ages ranging from 3 months to adults:

  • Jersey City Waldo Premium Plus: Our Waldo location in Jersey City serves as the home for our exclusive “Premium Plus” program, boasting smaller class sizes and a more personal environment. This select and very small location is carefully designed to provide a more calm, serene, and nurturing learning environment compared to our other pools. The class ratios are smaller, limited to 3 students per instructor for all classes, a significant difference from the 6:1 ratio in Tadpole and otherwise 4:1. It’s important to note that this particular site only offers beginner / water survival classes for children and does not offer Stroke Development or Adult classes. To learn more, click on the Waldo link on the map.
  • Ferris High School Competition Pool: Unlike Waldo, this pool presents a contrasting setup. It features a spacious 25m pool equipped with lane lines and starting blocks, specifically designated for advanced Stroke Development classes (Turtle 2 and above) and all Adult levels, ranging from Beginner to Advanced. This pool offers an ideal setting for Adults to learn swimming without any disturbances by nearby classes with young children, ensuring a focused and distraction-free learning experience.
