• Seating areas for snacks after all that exercise

Adult and Child 6 months+

The aim of this class is to develop water confidence and movement in water through fun and games.  Parents/carers accompany their child in the water for a fun 30 minute instructor led session using a range of water toys and equipment.

Pre-School and Pre-School Plus

This class is for 3-5 year olds to gain water confidence and experience of being in a class environment, with the emphasis on developing basic swimming skills through fun and games.

From 21 June any NEW children enrolled on our pre-school swimming lessons, will need to have a parent/carer/adult in the water with them at all times. 
There are huge benefits to doing this, including:
  • 1-2-1 support throughout the whole class
  • faster progression
  • eases any anxiety/nerves
  • copying the instructor and showing their child the movements in the water
  • helping with concentration so key swimming and water safety skills are learnt quicker.
  • it’s a fun thing to do together!

There is no pressure for parents of our existing pre-school swimmers to get in the water, but we do actively encourage it, as it’s proven to have a positive impact on your child’s learn2swim journey.
