Parent, Baby and Toddler Pool Sessions
Bring your little one along from 6 weeks old for some special bonding time in our warm pool. Time in the water is beneficial for both neurological and sensory development.
Our very small baby and toddler groups are absolutely perfect for building confidence in the water. We do not teach babies or toddlers to swim!
From 6 weeks old, we can teach your little ones to be confident in the water, to have fun and be safe!
Our classes are great for both the body and mind and it’s the perfect environment to spend special bonding time with your little one. Being in the water with your baby is a whole body sensory experience, our courses build confidence of both the parent and infant and aids transition through development milestones. We've been told the sessions lead to better sleep patterns too.
The warm water and small classes make it a stress free activity which will lead onto more formal learning once they reach the age of 3 years 6 months.
There are no more than four parents and children in the pool and the classes are split by age, plus the qualified instructor, teachers in the water, to ensure you feel confident during the sessions. Our teachers can also take photos of just you and your baby during the classes so you can share the experience with your loved ones when you return home.
To take part in the sessions the parent accompanying the baby or toddler doesn’t need to swim but please let our instructors know if you can’t, so we can give you a little extra help during some of the activities.
Your baby will need to wear a disposable swim nappy (huggies little swimmers or pampers equivalent) and then on top of that a neoprene swimming nappy, to prevent any accidents! Wearing these in the pool really does give you and us peace of mind that there will be no accidents.
Currently our Baby and Toddler sessions run on a Monday afternoon, Tuesday morning, Wednesday mornings, Thursday afternoon and Friday mornings term time only.
