Carefree movement in the water in 6 weeks!

If you want to enjoy being in the water with your child this summer holiday, this course might be for you!

This course is designed for children with little to no experience with swimming and teaches them that water is fun as well, not just scary. Children who complete this course will no longer be afraid to move inside the water, and will instead be able to enjoy the water carefree and comfortably.

It is also possible to join the regular swimming lessons in a more advanced group, after completing this course.

  • No waiting list
  • No registration costs (normally €15,00)

ABC swimmingclasses from the age of 4 years

The easiest way for children to learn how to be comfortable in the water is a playful one. At Aquayara, we use fun elements to enhance our lessons. Some examples are moving like a dolphin to learn how to dive, or jumping through a pool float to become less afraid of deep water. We also focus on survival assignments like climbing on or swimming under a rubber boat. Children love attributes like the boat!

At swimming school Aquayara, we offer the Survival A-, B- or C- swimming certificate. This diploma focuses more on real situations than the regular swimming certificates. We believe that the children become better and safer swimmers due to the additional requirements of the International swimming certificate from the ENVOZ. Examples of these additional requirements are longer distances with clothing, and beginner lifesaving techniques from a young age.

As a result we offer more quality, due to the additional requirements, within the same period. You can participate in lessons at our swimming school in Almere Muziekwijk, Almere Tussen de Vaarten or Lelystad.

We guarantee that children will receive their swimming certificate within 18 months of swimming education (66 swimming lessons). Read more about “diploma guarantee”.

After starting toddler swimming with grandma, Fleur immediately tried to get her A swimming certificate, and succeeded! Aquayara teaches with passion and humour, and our daughter enjoys the swimming lessons every week because of this.

Familie Verschuur


Our eldest son started his swimming lessons in 2011, at 4,5 years old. He started in the Muziekwijk pool, which immediately felt comfortable and familiar. Max always enjoyed his lessons with teacher Joery. Now, he is 13 years old and has the A, B, C, Advanced swimming and snorkling certificates. This has been a good start for him, because he is now a high level competition swimmer.

Our daughter, who is 11 years old now, has also received all of her certificates (9) at Aquayara. Together, they have done the mermaid and seascooter workshops. It’s very nice that those workshops are also offered here!

Our youngest son is 5 years old, and of course, he has also started his swimming lessons at Aquayara last year.

The lessons are clear, there are not too many children, and you always see a familiar face. A lot of attention is given to the children. Children have a lot of fun swimming at Aquayara, and as a parent, you can really notice.

Aquayara feels like a second home to us, which is a strong point of Aquayara. The contact with the staff is familiar, pleasant but also very professional.

The online scoring system shows the progress of our children very well. There is also a fun reward system for the children! 



Frédérique loves swimming at Aquayara. Learning the crawl, diving in deep water and using the water-bicycle are the highlights of the swimming lesson. Teacher Nick and Thijs are her favourite teachers. She really enjoys when Nick throws her in the air and she lands in the water. When she thinks about that, she immediately laughs.
