Babies and Toddlers - birth to 3 years

For younger children, we will be running a weekly Swim-a-Song session in our Training Pool.  Swim a Song is an alternative and fun session for introducing adults with babies or very young children to the exciting world of aquatics. This session is suitable for children from birth to 3 years old.  DG1 Swim-a-Song is a drop-in session, however booking is advisable as spaces are limited. One of our teaching staff will be on hand to give any help and advice you may require.

Included in our swimming tuition programme are swimming lessons for children with additional needs.  Our experienced swimming teachers can introduce your child to the water, help build water confidence or improve stroke technique.  Contact us to discuss how we can start your child off on their swimming journey.
