Our unique aquatic programme gives infants a diverse experience of sensory exploration and developmental opportunities.
Our ethos is based on creating an environment that gently guides you and your little one, enriching their water confidence and helping every child flourish.
With the use of specialised equipment we have created a class that is different than the mainstream parent and child class using a mix of activities such as music, singing, play and movement creating a multi-sensory environment.
Our ethos of providing lessons for infants and toddlers is based around instilling a love of water, this is the foundation of learning to swim. It is also an excellent way to ease children to a path of formally learning to swim by a teacher later on.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING CLASSES FOR CHILDREN UNDER 12 MONTHS
