Baby Swimming Lessons
Babies from 6 Months old
This is the best way to introduce your baby to water, to build their own self confidence and learn to love the water. The baby swimming lessons offer water awareness and water safety, in an environment where both parent and infant can have loads of fun together in and under the water.
A baby swimming class is the perfect opportunity to bond with your baby of any age. Starting your baby swimming before they are 12 months old will ensure they are more confident in the water.
