Ben loves his pre school lesson with Ruth. He is so confident in the water now.

swimming is a vital life skill

We believe it is never too early to start learning to swim, it's a skill that can save lives.

Rye are proud of its foundation swim school providing lessons for children under 5 years. From as young as 6 weeks old, children can join our adult and child lesson programme and start their swimming journey.

Our bookable nursery sessions (age 6weeks - 2.5 years) run every Friday 10.00-10.30am 11.00-11.30am, 12.00-12.30pm, 12.30-1.00pm. The relaxed session is led by a qualified instructor with parental involvement. We build water confidence through games, play and songs.

Children from 2.5 years can enjoy lessons in our pre-school programme. These small teaching groups of no more than 6 children are accompanied by our instructors in the water* which means you can sit back and watch with a coffee. Friday classes run 10.30-11.00am, 11.30am-12.00pm,1.30-2.00pm.

*Please note due to social distancing measures the instructors will be teaching from the side and parents will be expected to accompany their child in the water. We hope this situation will change as restrictions ease.
