Our aim is to enable your baby to be swimming independently up to 5 metres (sometimes more!) along the surface of the water, with no buoyancy aids around the age of three. We can accept babies from just a few weeks old onto our classes, and we teach children until they are capable of swimming independently on their fronts and backs, as well as achieving the learning outcomes of an Aquanaut in our parents out of the water Academy classes.

Our course objectives are to:

  • teach your little one water survival and safety skills;
  • empower the parent/carer to develop their little ones water confidence;
  • provide a starting block for developing a confident swimmer.
  • ...and to have a lot of fun!!

Our teachers are trained to the highest standards, with qualifications designed in partnership with Swim England, the national governing body for swimming.

Classes are small, with a maximum of 10 little ones, a carer per child and one of our teachers at any one time. They’re 30 minutes long and take place each week, so it’s a wonderful way to bond with your baby.
