Toddler Swimming Lessons
Swimming Lessons for Toddlers
Here at Aqua Babe we have taught thousands of babies, toddlers and children to swim and give them the ability to safely navigate water. Making it fun, every kick of the way!
Your Local Pool
Our classes are held at the Junction Leisure Centre in Broadstone, giving our students and parents the a great place to learn. With male, female and family changing facilities as well as a gallery for class viewing we’re able to keep the pre and post swimming experience as comfortable as possible.
The classes follow progressive lesson plans ensuring that they improve week on week. While the classes are structured, it is vital that the children also have fun and we do our best to ensure that there are elements of fun. This allows our students to develop their swimming skills week on week without it feeling like work.
Benefits for your Toddler
Swimming boosts breathing skills, coordination, strength and flexibility – and taking up a swimming class is a fantastic way for children to make new friends.
But it’s not just important for fun. Learning to swim is crucial for your little one’s safety – it could save your child’s life someday by preventing a drowning accident.
When should I start toddler swimming lessons?
If your child is already a toddler, there is no reason to delay getting them into the water and learning this valuable life skill.
Our toddler and pre-school lessons take them all the way to school age and will give them the confidence and safety around the water all children need.
I can’t swim, can I still do lessons?
The pool at The Junction has two shallow ends at 0.9m (around hip height). This means that even if you can’t swim or you’re not confident you will be able to walk in the pool. Don’t forget, we’ll also be there with you every step of the way to ensure you have a great experience.
We’ll never ask you to go underwater.
Five reasons to teach your toddler to swim:

Learning water safety
Both of my girls started swimming lessons with Kim at the age of 5 months. Both are able to swim without any aid, thanks to her patience and skill. Kim knows when to support them, and when to push them, because they need it! They always leave swimming lessons with a smile.
After 5 years and 2 children I regard Kim as part of the family! She has encouraged and supported my little ones through the highs and lows of learning to swim. She has made me feel happy and welcome as both a frightened new mum and as a old time regular. Her techniques are caring yet firm and she has been the major factor in creating two confident little aqua-babes who just adore the water. I can not thank or recommend Kim enough.
