Learn to Swim

Jump in at Learn to Swim at the Tepid Baths!

We offer:

  • small class sizes
  • free swimming before and after lessons
  • discounts for families with three or more members enrolled.

We can instruct swimmers of any age and ability, from 6-month-old babies to adults.

Why choose our Learn to Swim classes?

  • We really care about teaching water safety. All our students are taught key water safety skills first, then progress to mastering swimming skills.
  • All our instructors hold a New Zealand Certification in Aquatics and are AUSTSWIM qualified.
  • As a community facility, we are more affordable than many private providers - and we never compromise on quality.

Our facility accommodates family members of all ages. We have a shallower, warmer learn to swim pool and a bigger pool for deep water confidence and greater distance.

Be in the pool with your baby, or do your own laps or get in a quick workout while your school-aged child takes a class!

Term classes

Which class is right for me or my child?

We offer free assessments to determine yours or your child’s level.

Book a free assessment

School holiday learn to swim courses

Holiday swim courses run over five consecutive half days (four if there is a public holiday) from Monday to Friday. Courses may be in the morning or the afternoon. We take enrolments for complete courses only.

If your child is a bit stuck on an element of their swimming, by coming every day for five days they'll normally crack it. Conquer that learning to breathe, breaststroke, or butterfly!

How to book a school holiday course

Contact us using the details on this page, or talk to the Learn to Swim team at the centre. A free assessment may be required to determine your child's level.

Half price swimming lessons for Plunket kids

Plunket kids under five years are eligible for 50 per cent off swimming lessons with Learn to Swim at the Tepid Baths.

The discount applies to classes from Monday to Friday between 9am and 3pm, and is valid for four consecutive enrolments. Little swimmers must be enrolled into Baby, Toddler or Preschooler lessons.

Send us a completed registration form and we'll be in touch with a time to assess your child (if we haven't prior) and enrol them in a suitable programme for their skill level.

Half price lessons for Plunket kids is a partnership between Plunket and Auckland Council.

Swimming lessons and water safety for schools

We’re experienced and skilled at working with schools, tailoring programmes to schools’ needs and the age and stage of their students:

  • swimming lessons
  • lifejacket usage
  • deep water confidence
  • boating experiences.

Lessons can take place in our facilities, or our instructors can come to you if your school has its own pool.

Auckland Council Pools and Leisure is a partner in the Greater Auckland Aquatic Action Plan (GAAAP) programme of funded school swimming lessons.
