Little Splashers

Swimming Sessions for Parent/Carer and Child

Little Splashers (for children under 3 years)

Little Splashers is an introduction to swimming and water confidence class aimed at the under 3s. It allows babies and toddlers to experience and become familiar with the swimming pool in a fun and safe environment, whilst learning the basics of water movements through guided play. It provides children with skills that will enable them to learn faster when they enter the Learn to Swim scheme at age 3yrs, and helps parent/carers to understand teaching methods and encourage practice out with lessons.

It also helps the parent/carers to be comfortable and confident in the way of holding their younger babies in the water.

Teaching your baby how to be comfortable and enjoy the pool at a young age lays the foundation for a growing confidence. Many life-enhancing water safety skills for babies come from being comfortable and enjoying their time in the pool.
