Water confidence builds life confidence. That’s why introducing your little one to the water is one of the best starts you can give them in life.
Our leading swim programme has been developed to build water confidence and skills throughout your little one’s first five years. We work closely with Swim England, the national governing body for swimming, and we’ve woven their learn to swim framework through our programme. You’ll love nothing more than seeing their progression as your little one moves from fun floating, kicking and splashing to swimming independently.
And not only will your little one develop key aquatic skills, but we’ll also give them the knowledge to keep themselves safe. By the end of their journey, your child will be able to independently swim to the side and climb out to safety, wherever they are.
You can be safe in the knowledge that you’re learning from the best. Our teachers are the only ones who can hold Swim England’s Level 3 qualification, the highest that can be achieved. And they’re the most passionate around, there to guide you at every stroke of your little one’s journey. Because the more confident they are in the water, the more confident they’ll be out of it too. All the things that we teach in the water are structured to support their development; physically, intellectually and emotionally.
Focused time in the water also strengthens the bond between you and your baby, through that skin-to-skin contact in the comforting warmth of the water. It’s the perfect place to connect, away from the craziness of daily life.
Classes are kept small, with one carer per baby in the pool, and last for half an hour. Skills are taught using songs, rhymes and lots of splashy enthusiasm and are lots of fun for both our Water Babies and their parents or carers who swim with them. One of our core philosophies is that we teach you to teach your baby to swim – so we’ll always explain why we’re doing something, as well as carefully demonstrate exactly what to do.
We offer classes suitable for babies aged from birth right up to 5 years old so even if your little one is no longer a baby, it’s not too late to join a class!
So what are you waiting for? When they’re ready, we’re ready.
