Parent and child programme
We have five levels in our parent and child programme which are a blend of age and ability groupings. Young children learn better when with their own age group.
Once the child is 3 ½ years of age they can then go into their lesson on their own without a parent/caregiver. Our philosophy is to encourage children to move actively and confidently in the aquatic environment while having fun!
To enrol your pre-schooler in one of our programmes just pop into the centre. For more information call us on 03 433 0410 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fees for all programme can be found at swim school fees page.
