You are welcome to join a Turtle Tots baby swimming class at any time from when your baby is newborn, until they are 14 months old. At our classes you will learn how to swim with your baby above and below the water and how to teach your baby water confidence and key lifesaving skills. Equally importantly, the baby swimming classes provide the most overwhelming bonding experience! The benefits of baby swimming classes are numerous. A weekly swim improves your baby’s cardio-vascular system and builds strength. Swimming can aid early walking co-ordination and associated motor skills are also improved through regular exercise.
Our swimming classes for toddlers are a natural progression from our baby swimming classes. The course has been carefully designed with a balanced set of activities including swimming technique, safety skills, floating, individual and group work including songs and games. However, the emphasis remains on learning through having fun! Our toddler course is split into three levels based on ability and age, where your child will develop their water confidence, stroke development and learn essential life-saving skills
