You are never too young to learn to swim! Let your toddlers learn the tricks and trades of swimming from an early age so that they can grow up to become confident and capable swimmers in the future.


Buckler Aquatics offers swimming lessons to toddlers in our three locations in Toronto. We are here to make swimming more fun and easy for your child.


As an introduction to the water for our younger, toddler-age swimmers and in preparation for the Red Cross Swim Kids program, Buckler Aquatics has its own exclusive ‘badge’ certification called Buckler TAD.


Our professional toddler swimming lessons in Toronto (North York, Mississauga and Scarborough) begin with making sure that the child is completely relaxed and comfortable in the water. You can trust us with your children’s safety while they learn and have fun.



The TAD program provides young swimmers with a sense of water orientation, building trust between the swimmer and the instructor. Using proven methods and slow, gentle persuasion, instructors introduce the major components of this level, which are breath retention and breathing control.


You can rely on us for infant swimming lessons in Toronto and help your children develop great life skills during their initial years. Our team and facility are also equipped to ensure that all safety measures are in place at our pool. You need not worry about the hazards as we have adopted all safety measures in our pool.

Swimming Lessons for Kids in Toronto

After completion of our introductory toddler swimming lessons, our swimming lessons for kids then move to front floats, having your child holding their breath with their head underwater, followed by back floats. To earn their Buckler TAD badge, swimmers must be able to perform both a front and back float unassisted across the width of the pool. Receiving the TAD badge is a very rewarding event for young swimmers, signifying their first achievement in the pool. Our lessons are a great way to improve a kid’s confidence while swimming independently.



Swimming results in the all-round development of your child. It contributes to a child’s physical strength and development and boosts his confidence and social skills. Your baby might not be able to walk or talk but can have fun swimming lessons as early as when they are just 4 months old. Some benefits of swimming lessons for toddlers and kids are:

  • Improves social skills: When your child engages in a group activity and interacts with other kids, they develop socially. They interact and talk with other kids and enjoy themselves apart from the usual school and studies.

  • Learn safety skills: Swimming is not just an activity but a life-saving skill that your child learns. 

  • Improves mental development: Swimming helps children develop a good mind and body connection that helps improve brain development.​

  • Health benefits: One of the major benefits of swimming is cardiovascular exercise. Swimming enhances the condition of the heart and lungs of a child while also building his strength and flexibility. Regular movement of the body due to swimming also prevents obesity in kids.


Signing your kid up for swimming lessons can be one of your wisest decisions as a parent. Get in touch with us if you’re looking for infant swimming lessons in Toronto.


Swimming lessons come with countless benefits for your toddler. Apart from preparing them for future lessons and making them comfortable in the water, they can boost cognitive skills, minimize the chances of drowning, improve confidence and much more. When choosing a swimming program for your toddler, we recommend the following qualities:

  • Experience: The swimming instructors should be experienced and have all the required qualifications to teach your toddler to swim safely. At Buckler Aquatics, we have years of experience and 40 certified and experienced swim instructors on our team.

  • Safety habits: The swimming school should have good safety practices in place to protect your toddler. At our swimming program, we adhere to the highest standards of safety, and our instructors are all certified by the Canadian Red Cross and the Lifesaving Society of Canada.

  • Observation: To get a better idea, you can request the school to let you observe a swimming class. You can decide whether or not the program is suitable for your toddler based on your assessment. We have provided classes for over 50 years for adults, children and even those with special needs. You can view our testimonials section to learn what our past students have said about us.

  • Comfort: The conditions of the pool should be clean and comfortable for your toddler to learn to swim in. We maintain cleanliness, and we keep our pools’ temperature at 90 degrees for optimum comfort.
