What Is a Toddler Swimming Class?

‘Learning to swim is a critical part of a young child’s development – similar to learning to walk, talk or ride a bike – but it’s a skill that, if learned early, is proven to save lives.’ Lenny Krayzelburg (four-time Olympic gold medalist)

Swimming is one of the best-loved family activities in Britain. It is the largest participation sport in the UK and many children say it is their favourite family pastime. So, one of the benefits of ‘Parent and child’ swimming classes for babies and toddlers is that it starts building water confidence very early on. 

In swimming, the golden rule of ‘the earlier the better’ applies.

Benefits of Swimming Classes for Babies And Toddlers

  • Swimming helps to build muscles. Working and strengthening all of their muscles effectively helps to make them stronger specially core muscles which are very important for balance, walking and posture.
  • This is how children spell love: T.I.M.E. Swimming provides quality bonding time for parents and children. If parents would like spend quality time with their young children, ‘Parent and Child’ classes are the perfect opportunities. Time in the pool is one of the few times when your child has your undivided attention for the duration, so you can make the most of it.


  • Improving children’s sleeping patterns is the magic of swimming. Swimming makes children sleepy and relaxed.
  • Swimming improves appetite. Lots of gentle exercise and warm water help to make babies or toddlers hungry. We recommend snacks and milk or water for after swimming lessons.
