We've taught thousands of kids how to swim since 1986

Pedalheads Swim provides fun and enriching swim lessons for kids ages 4 months and up. Renowned for our longer lessons, small class sizes, and specialized swim methods that give kids the skills to be safe in the water. We've earned a reputation of excellence in the communities we serve.


BIG NEWS! Starting in January 2023 we will be partnering with Swim for Life, a reputable organization that is endorsed by the International Life Saving Federation and run by The Lifesaving Society. At that time, we will no longer be affiliated with the Red Cross. Don’t worry! There will be no changes in terms of the high-quality lessons and service that we currently provide.

Why Parents Choose PedalHeads Swim

Kids Feel Comfortable + Have Fun

We keep kids and their lesson experience in mind in everything we do and believe learning to swim should be both comfortable and fun. We incorporate interactive games into our programming so that kids are engaged in learning and we keep our class sizes small and the water warm so kids feel comfortable for the entire duration of their class.

The Pedalheads Method

We’ve specially designed each progression of our program to include level-specific toys, tools and tactics for all kids to confidently grow and develop their swimming skills over time - whether they’re just starting out or have been swimming for a while.

Top Notch Instruction

Our instructors receive specialized training and work directly in the water with kids so they can better demonstrate techniques, provide feedback and refine their students’ skills. This hands-on approach and consistent method is what leads to improved performance and success in the water.

Swim levels

From bubbles to butterfly, we help kids progress in their swim ability! We focus on building their confidence and skills to safely enjoy the water, and for some, maybe one day become an Olympian!

We are excited to now be offering swim lessons in both Metro Vancouver and Toronto. Located in the heart of Forest Hill at The Bishop Strachan School, parents can now enjoy our swim lessons on the east coast.
