Long Island Swim School provides swimming lessons for children ages 2 - 10. At Long Island Swim School children are taught their strokes right the first time. The small group environment makes learning to swim safe, easy, and fun. Our learning sequences are geared towards small logical progressions that allow the whole stroke to be developed. Children learn the safety skills they need by learning to swim correctly. We work on developing real swimming strokes, as opposed to developing a false sense of security derived by under water swimming and dog paddling that ultimately may interfere with learning real swimming. When children learn to swim right the first time they learn to swim for life!

Long Island Swim School is located in Garden City, at 750 Stewart Avenue. To find us please pull into the parking lot for Ethan Allen and drive to the back of the building. We are the rear entrance.

We offer classes Monday - Friday afternoons between 3:30 and 6:30 pm and Saturday mornings between 9 am and 12:45. There are also classes during the school day Monday - Thursdays. Please see the link on the left to register for the session you are interested in.

Long Island Swim School is now an official Make a Splash Local Partner - an initiative of USA Swimming!!


About our Programs

Most beginning and intermediate swimmers participate in our regular group classes. This program ranges in ages from 3.5 to 10 and is further broken down into teaching groups based upon age and ability. Students in this group can expect to learn and accomplish a multitude of skills that are outlined in their skill sheets, all important steps towards successful swimming. Our small class size, with a 1:5 instructor to swimmer ratio or better, offers every child the opportunity to learn and succeed in meeting and executing new skills.

TOT Classes

The TOT classes are open for toddlers between the ages of 2 and 3.5. Students receive a 1:3 student/teacher ratio to familiarize them with the environment, allow for separation from the parent, and create a joy for the water.


Long Island Swim School is the teaching arm of Long Island Swimming. Since its inception in 1979, Long Island Swimming has provided swim lessons for thousands of children throughout Nassau County and Long Island.
