Baby / Toddler & Parent Swimming Lessons

Our parent and baby swimming lessons are for children from birth to 3.5 years of age. One parent or guardian is required per baby/toddler for the lesson. Parents/guardians get into the water with their baby/toddler and are fully supported and guided by the highly-experienced swimming teacher. Lessons are informative, well-organised and engaging and the babies and toddlers love to splash about, watch other babies and toddlers and really have fun and learn from the experience.  At 30 minutes per lesson, toddler and baby swimming lessons are designed to work with the child’s attention span and energy levels.

Swimming with our toddler has become the highlight of our week, we started classes when Farah was about 7 months old, she is coming up on her 2nd birthday soon and it is amazing to see how much she loves the water and how confident she is in it. I remember stopping and being amazed watching her climb out of the pool at 18 months and thinking I never could have imagined a child so young being able to do that! Diana is a wonderful teacher, so calm, patient and always smiling, such a pleasure to be around. Diana's parent and baby swim classes are such great fun and not just for baby! My partner and I love going every week with our toddler. It is so much fun seeing her enjoy the water and grow in confidence every week.

Thanks to Diana for making Emily's introduction to water so memorable. Emily and I thoroughly enjoy our weekly swim session. Thoroughly recommend to every Mum and Baby.

Diana’s Swim Academy is an incredible experience for parent and baby. The classes are fun, engaging and a special time for bonding with your little one.

We started the classes when my daughter was just 8 weeks old. Diana guided us and responded to the baby's natural instincts. The lessons were fun and interactive with songs, rhymes and laughter. Lessons with Diana were the highlight of our week.
