Parent and Baby Classes 0 – 18 Months

Adult and Baby swimming classes are the ideal way to start to learn to swim. This class is for babies up to 18 months old. Adults will be expected to be in the water with their child. There will always be a swimming teacher in the pool with the children and a lifesaver poolside.

This course is ideal for gaining water confidence for both adult and children – we will teach you how to support your baby safely in the water and show you how to encourage pre- swimming activities.

With plenty of singing and splashing the children will have fun, gain confidence in the water and start to learn the skills they will need to learn to swim independently such as floating, kicking, blowing bubbles and reaching for objects in the water.

Parent and Toddler Swimming Classes 18 Months to 36 Months

Adult and Toddler swimming classes are the ideal way for toddlers to start to learn to swim on their own. Adults will be expected to be in the water with their child. There will always be a swimming teacher in the pool with the children and a lifesaver poolside.

This course is ideal for gaining water confidence and learning the skills that children will need to learn to swim independently.
Through use of singing and fun games you and your child will be working towards achieving the following:

Preschool Swimming Classes 3 years to 4 years

Preschool swimming classes are the ideal way to continue on your child’s swimming journey. You will be in the water with your child initially but may be asked to allow your child to be in the pool unaccompanied depending on confidence and progress. There will always be a swimming teacher in the pool with the children and a lifesaver poolside.

The Preschool class is the next step on from our Mother and Toddler class and is designed to help pre-schoolers enjoy learning to swim with help from their parents or guardians. This course is great for promoting increased independence and water confidence to help prepare for Stage 1 of the Learn to Swim Framework.

  • Making a supervised jump to an adult with or without support
  • Floating on front or back without adult support
  • Showing a streamlined shape on front or back when pushing off from a supporting adult
  • Blowing bubbles with the mouth and nose underwater
  • Travelling five metres on front to the side of the pool without assistance
