Under 3’s Swimming Classes


‘Watching a child makes it obvious that the development of his mind comes through his movement.’ ~ Dr Maria Montessori

In a happy environment where children can clap and kick and have fun in water with their parents, splash with their little hands and tiny toes, could be a great starting point to start off your child’s swimming journey.

Our toddler swimming classes are for toddlers aged 18 months to 3/3.5 years.

Our toddler swimming classes are the preparation stage before starting our standard pre-schoolers swim lessons from age 3-3.5 years old.

Our first aim is to instil the love of water in babies and toddlers.

Secondly, your toddler learns the basic swimming skills, kicking and blowing bubbles.

What To Expect In Out Toddler Classes

Our toddler swimming classes are fun, safe, effective and it is an innovative way to introduce young children to water.

Every child should be in water with a trusted adult in toddler classes. It could be a parent, a nanny or a grandparent.

We use game-based activities, toys and nursery rhymes to add extra fun and keep the little ones engaged.

We teach and practice a variety of water skills like kicking, jumping and blowing bubbles

Fun, Safe & Effective

Participation in our baby and toddler classes also have other health benefits for your little one.

They boost:

  • Physical development
  • Psychological wellbeing
  • Confidence
  • Bonding with their parent/primary carer

What’s more….

Through these classes, the under 3’s pick up the water-confidence and the ability to follow instructions in the pool, so, when they join the learn-to-swim classes (lessons independent from their parents) they don’t have to start from complete scratch.

In our experience, we have noticed time and again that children who have started off with us as toddlers will progress through our learn-to-swim stage much faster and generally better results are gained over a shorter period of time.

Key advice and activities could be tried outside of the classes by parents during the family swim in local swimming pools or when they are on holiday.
