(18 months-4 years)
Swimming lessons are proven to have both physical and developmental benefits for little ones. Our classes provide a safe and happy environment in the water, and are built to promote bonding for you both together. Songs and activities build water confidence and skills, and all of this provides the foundation for them to learn to swim, and build a lifelong love of the water. Our classes follow the Starfish and the first Stanley levels of the STA International Learn to Swim Programme, with badges available to collect along the way!
Beginner classes are centred around water confidence, floatation and learning basic movements, giving little ones the basis for all their future swimming achievements. New swimmers are encouraged to enjoy being in the water and become comfortable with the sensation of floating independently. (Please note that little ones are not required to submerge under the water, and full underwater activities will only take place once they are happy to do so.)
If your little one is confident in the water, then it’s time to build on all those important swimming and safety skills! Toddlers who have completed lessons before, and are comfortable in the water, will be encouraged towards less supported skills when they are ready.
Ages 2.5yrs - 4 yrs old
Little ones are normally ready to begin lessons on their own between 2.5-4 years old. If your little one is more nervous or hasn't taken lessons before, we offer special transition courses to get them started in the pool.
Transition classes are perfect for little ones who are not quite ready to swim in lessons on their own, but are ready to move on from Baby and Toddler lessons. Classes follow the same Starfish/Stanley levels, but are supported by the parent/carer in the water. Your Instructor will provide tailored activities to build confidence and help them transition to lessons on their own when they are ready.

These are the perfect interim swimming lesson when you have a toddler who isn't ready to swim on their own, and a new baby ready to start on their swimming journey. We run with smaller numbers than Adult and Child classes so your instructor can give specific attention and guidance, and help toddlers learn to move freely with floats, and make the steps to lesson on their own. At the same time, babies can begin to grow in confidence in the water and complete activities from our baby programme.
These lessons run for little ones aged 2 years upwards, and need just one adult in the pool. These courses will also run with smaller numbers than Adult and Child lessons to enable your instructor to guide and help them become more independent in the pool, and start their journey to water confidence.. and to lessons without you in the pool!
