Is the pool warm ?
Yes, the pool temperature is maintained at 31°
Is the pool clean ?
Yes, the pool is very clean.
Is there ample car parking close to the pool ?
The car parking is adjacent to The Junction and normal council parking fees apply.
Are the adequate changing areas for parents and babies ?
Yes you can use the wetside, dryside or family changing rooms.
How many babies /children are there in a class ?
In the baby/toddler swim classes, I like to keep to the maximum number of 8 however for the older independent swimming children, the number is 6 or less but can vary.
What should your baby/children wear ?
It is mandatory to wear a double nappy system for all babies and toddlers until the are toilet trained. The double nappy system is a disposable swim nappy or a re-usable swim nappy underneath a neoprene nappy (HappyNappy-www.splashabout.comEmail: email@example.com). The top nappy should fit closely around the waist and thighs to form a tight seal over the disposable nappy.
Either of these may be worn under fashionable swim costumes/trunks.
Can I take car seat/pushchair onto pool side ?
Pushchairs and car seats maybe permitted in changing rooms only, however they must not block any emergency exits or access to the poolside. Please ensure that your pushchair wheels are not covered in mud, (if they are please leave them outside)
I have another baby / child, can I bring them along too ?
Yes you can, there is a coffee shop upstairs where you can watch the swimming lessons. However as the parent or guardian, it is your responsibility to ensure that they are safe at all times.
Do you run a Swimming Badge Syllabus ?
Yes, I use the Swimming Teachers Association badge - Starfish - Teddy Bear -Stanley syllabus
Can parents/carers watch from the poolside
As Aqua-Babe is now at The Junction, unfortunately their procedures do not permit poolside viewing unless it is a care of health and safety of the child. Should you need to come onto poolside, please remove outdoor shoes, or place the blue plastic shoe covers over the top of your shoes.
