Early Years Programme
The Early Years Programme has 3 levels, each with its own clearly defined objectives.
Adult and Baby
This is a fantastic way to introduce babies to an aquatic environment. The class teaches safe handling skills of babies in the water through the use of nursery rhymes and games, building the confidence of both the baby and parent in a fun and friendly environment. For babies aged up to 1 year.
Adult and Toddler
Adult and Toddler classes build upon skills already learned through Adult and Baby classes, however it is not necessary to have attended Adult and Baby. This class focuses on the development of basic motor skills and independent swimming movements, through fun and games. For toddlers aged 1-2 years.
Adult and Child
This introduces the basic core aquatic submersion and aquatic breathing skills. The child will be encouraged to travel independently in water in preparation for pre-school classes. The support of the adult is available for added encouragement and confidence. For children aged 2-3 years.
All of these classes are paid for by Direct Debit and are £21.25 per month. They are available across all of our pools and there is a maximum of 12 people per class.
