  1. The Aquatots programme is the most advanced and enjoyable water safety and swim training curriculum available, designed to follow a child's natural physical and psychological development, through baby, toddler and child years. Coming along to Aquatots is a lot of fun and for many families forms the highlight of their week. The children simply love the in water play and the social interaction with children of their own age. Lots of lasting friendships are made through meeting other young families at Aquatots and many social activities planned too.

    Aquatots unique training is delivered through our rewarding fun based learning system over 24 levels designed especially for Babies, Toddlers and Children. Our swimming programme is divided into the 24 levels, each stage designed especially, taking babies from 10 weeks old through to 6 years of age.

    We require the babies to be under 18 months to start on the Level 1 (Ducklings) beginners’ course and over this age they can join our Foundation programme for new swimmers from 18 months to 6 years of age.  Most Baby Swim programmes provide just a few basic splash lessons with your baby over a few weeks, providing little if any, long term learning or retention of water safety skills.  Aquatots system is a complete, safe, enjoyable easy way of learning water safety and swimming whilst having fun. Amazing results and life saving skills are often obtained in just a few lessons. They learn for instance to breath hold, turn to the side and kick from the bottom, all of these important water safety skills that may save your baby’s life some day, making them less likely to panic should they accidentally fall into any body of water.

    Most babies are about two and a half to three years old before they have the muscle co-ordination and motivation required to actually lift their head up and breath above water. So until then, make the most of it and let them have the opportunity of early adaption to water. The earlier you start and the younger your baby is the better.

    For parents, it’s a chance to meet many people with young families and arrange other social activities, for your children, it’s a gift for life.

    Bonus - The Aquatots Advanced Programme also includes: Snorkelling, Under Water Scooters and In Water Rescue skills from child levels 14 and upwards. We have four, five and six year old swimmers regularly achieving unbelievable 1000 and 2000 metre badges.

    • We have been voted as a nominee in the KalliKids Best Swimming Class award 2015!

    This recommendation was made verbally by a parent speaking to the KalliKids team and confirmed in writing.

    • Emma (mum) William (age 6) Jake (age 5)

      My son William is slightly autistic and swimming with Aquatots is something he enjoys very much. The teachers are great in getting him engaged in activities quickly. I am so pleased with how both William and Jake are progressing with their swimming.

    • Sarah, Mum in Hampshire

      My youngest child who is two has lessons with Aquatots in Hampshire. The location is really convenient, the pool is lovely and warm, and it is a smallish group so you get lots of attention. There were a few cancellations last year due to pool issues (although I understand that this was not down to Aquatots) but this seems to have settled down now. Elizabeth loves going, which means that I enjoy it too and we have a nice time in the pool together.

    • Richard, Dad of Harry (2) and Hollie (4), Tonbridge

      Both our children have been going to Aquatots and their swimming has picked-up brilliantly. They are really confident in the water and the Aquatots teachers have taught them all about safety underwater (they know to hold on, head for the side and push up from the bottom). Harry can already swim unaided about a metre and Hollie can already swim 15 metres! The teaching team are always friendly, helpful and approachable. They always keep us informed and we really do like the classes.

    • Dad to Oliver, Aged 2

      Aquatots is great, its Oliver's favourite time of the week – he just loves it! The instructors are really good and Oliver is confident in the water learning to swim whilst having lots of fun. We’ve met some nice families along the way too.

    • Tim (dad) Jack (age 4) and Sophie (age 6) Bexleyheath

      Aquatots is great as it has made my children keen swimmers. They really enjoy it, Jack can swim 200 m and Sophie can swim over 2000m. On holiday this year people were baffled that my son who was 3 at the time was so confident in the water.
