Our toddler lessons are aimed at children from 18 months to 3 years with their parent/carer taking part in the lesson with them. The 30-minute sessions are limited to just 5 swimming partnerships with the teacher in the water. Children may swim with a variety of grown-up helpers - parent, grandparent, carer or nanny - all are welcome, regardless of their own swimming ability. On reaching their third birthday, children will be invited to join a Preschool class, swimming solo for the first time.


Our lessons provide the opportunity for toddlers to explore and experience the water, building confidence through games, activities and themed lessons. We believe safety should be introduced at the earliest opportunity so that good habits are formed. We encourage children to respect the water through building an understanding of its hazards and risks. We increase independence safely by developing self-buoyancy and balance both with and without flotation devices


All toddler lessons are held at our beautiful Bath pool. Based in Combe Down, this private and warm pool provides the perfect setting for toddlers to build their confidence in the water and have fun learning new skills.
