From 1995 Zwemschool Pardoes organizes swimming lessons for children from ± 5 years.

We provide swimming lessons at a time and a location that are attractive for both children and parents. Thanks to enthusiastic, professional teachers, we have a unique concept and a close-knit team for more than 20 years.

We train for the A-B-C diploma with Zwemsurvival | Elemental swimming techniques with survival elements.
This swimming diploma is not only for the Netherlands, but a swimming diploma that is swum in many countries of the world. The recognition that these diplomas have is a recognition of the International Federation of Swimming Teachers Association (IFSTA). An organization that delivers diplomas in more than 20 countries around the world. The lessons for the A-diploma are given at the Overtoom 283 in Amsterdam in the pool of Reade, a center for Rehabilitation and Rheumatology. The warm water (32 degrees), the water depth (140 cm) and as many as possible the same swimming instructors provide an atmosphere of peace, safety and trust. By obtaining the Swimming Diploma A your child can progress to our Swimming Diploma B lessons. With this diploma your child shows to have a good physical condition and to master the skills to swim safely. This also applies to the swimming diploma C. For those lessons we go to the Spring basin of the Sloterparkbad. We also provide a nice and quiet environment, so that you can practice well.

Small groups with the same instructors. 
Safety first

Dubble lessons?

We have recently started offering double lessons. Your child then follows two lessons in a row, total of 1.5 hours. Between classes, they have a short break, where they can eat and drink something. Learning to swim can go faster, if in doubt ask the teacher if this fits your child.
