On Thursday Afternoons From 2.30 pm to 3.30 pm, our baby and toddler swimming lessons take place at teaching pool of Putney Leisure Centre which is located off Upper Richmond Road, in Putney, Wandsworth.
The address is: Putney Leisure Centre, Dryburgh Rd, Putney, London SW15 1BL.
A walking distance from Putney train station. Access by car is also easy and there’s free parking on site. Free parking for two hours.
The school has a 12 metre indoor heated swimming pool with the water temperature set at 31.5°C throughout the year, perfectly nice and warm for little ones. The pool is regularly tested to make sure the appropriate standards of hygiene are being maintained.
The shallow end is 0.8 metres deep and the max depth is 0.9 meters. At this depth most three year-olds are able to touch the bottom of the pool making it an ideal place for pre-schoolers to begin their learn-to-swim journey. Being able to reach the bottom enables them to confidently enjoy the water.
Putney leisure centre’s teaching swimming pool has two fun slides. Many London pools do not have this facility.
The venue is well supplied with all the teaching aids – such as mats, floats and noodles, required for teaching swimming so there is no requirement to bring along additional swimming equipment to lessons.
There are spacious changing rooms for boys/men and girls/ladies and family changing rooms with baby changing boards. There are plenty of warm showers and toilets. Although there are lockers (you need padlocks for locking them) and plenty of hooks for hanging clothes. We do ask parents and carers to make sure they leave the shower facilities in a clean condition and to take all their belongings with them.
Parents, carers and siblings are welcome to spectate from the observatory area where there is plenty of space to sit around the poolside and watch the lessons.
There are vending machine ad a nice cafe at this venue so, parents are able to purchase food or drink (hot and cold) at this venue after the lessons.
