Are the instructors fully trained and insured?

All instructors are trained. They also hol first aid qualifications, NRASTC and are DBS checked and fully insured.

Does it matter if I can’t swim?

No! One of the main motivators for non-swimming parents to enrol their children in swimming lessons is because they can’t swim and want their child to be able to. We teach in shallow pools, so you will be able to keep your feet on the ground at all times if you choose to. Your child needs you to feel relaxed in the water, so if you are nervous about starting lessons, please speak to us first – we are here to help!

Can a relative come to watch?

Yes, toddlers usually love their family members coming to watch them. Some venues may have a restriction on the number of spectators that can come at one time, so just check the website or with us if you are unsure.

Can I take photos / videos?

For safeguarding reasons, we ask that spectators do not take photos during lessons, however, with the permission of your instructor, you may be able to take a photo at the end as long as no-one else is in the picture. Videos are not permitted at any time.

Can both parents swim with the child?

For health and safety reasons there is a limit to how many people we can have in the pool at any one time. Therefore, we only allow one adult in the water per child.
