The benefits of introducing swimming to your baby or toddler are enormous. It provides improved water confidence from an early age, it begins their swimming learning journey before they’re ready to move to our Swim School and it creates a close and trusting bond with you.

The emphasis is upon the development of basic movement skills, confidence building and an introduction to water and the swimming environment through fun and games.

"Swimming with your baby or toddler is one of the most wonderful experiences you can share together where you can really focus one-to-one."

It offers your little one a unique sensory experience and helps them develop confidence in the water that will last them a lifetime.

Our classes offer children the chance to learn the importance of water safety and develop a life skill at such a young age and will instil a respect for the water as well as making a visit to their pool or having a dip while on holiday GREAT FUN!
