Behind reception at the Pool is a height chart that shows the current water depth of the Small Teaching Pool. Once a child can stand safely in the pool, they can join the Toddlers class that we call “Under 5’s”. This is normally between two years nine months and three years.
The pool is warm, enclosed and private but parents can easily deliver and collect from the pool edge. During the lesson, parents watch in reception, live on a big screen.
Specifically trained, experienced teachers are always in the water to gently introduce newcomers and encourage independent swimming.
Using Awards from the Amateur swimming Association, children gradually gain confidence and skills to achieve motivational badges.
Children will stay in these classes until they reach school age and transfer to after school times.
All first timers are offered a lesson without charge to make sure that everyone is happy.
A detailed list of available times is displayed on the right as a download. Find a slot that fits then call the pool to reserve a place. Complete the direct debit form, also listed on the right, in full and bring it with you. Depending on timing, you would normally need to pay for the first few weeks by card or cash before the direct debit starts.
