Baby and Toddler Swimming Lessons, Turtle Tots

Turtle Tots lessons are truly child-centred. Each child is nurtured and activities are adapted to meet each individual’s needs. By the time you have reached the end of our baby programe we have taught you all the separate techniques and practices necessary for independent swimming. Our highly trained and skilled teachers ensure lessons are fun and sociable for everyone, whilst teaching your child essential life-saving skills.

Baby & Toddler Swimming Lessons, Water Babies

Water confidence builds life confidence. That’s why introducing your little one to the water is one of the best starts you can give them in life. Not only are Water Babies lessons tons of fun, in addition to this our leading swim programme has been developed to build water confidence and skills throughout your little one’s first five years.
You’ll love nothing more than seeing their progression as your little one moves from fun floating, kicking and splashing to swimming independently. And not only will your little one develop key aquatic skills, but we’ll also give them the knowledge to keep themselves safe.
By the end of their journey, your child will be able to independently swim to the side and climb out to safety, wherever they are. You can be safe in the knowledge that you’re learning from the best.
Water Babies teachers are the only ones who can hold Swim England’s Level 3 qualification, the highest that can be achieved. And they’re the most passionate around, there to guide you at every stroke of your little one’s journey.
Because your little one is more confident in the water, the more confident they’ll be out of it too. All the skills and lessons that we teach in the water are structured to support their development; physically, intellectually and emotionally. All of these amazing benefits while getting you both out and having fun!
