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.

We have been attending swimming with Diana since our daughter was 9 weeks old and we really look forward to it every week. It is a great bonding session and teaches little ones to swim in a fun and safe environment. I tell all the moms and dads I know to try it out! Our little lady is a true water baby thanks to Diana!

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.

Myself and my little boy have been attending classes with Diana’s Swim Academy since my toddler was only a few weeks old, it has been such a fantastic part of our routine, and such a positive experience on so many levels.

Not only has my son developed his abilities in water with an experienced teacher who is a mammy herself and understands child development but it has also been a fantastic bonding experience for both of us as mother and son, he has developed full trust with me throughout the lessons and this trust has deepened over time.

We have also made lots of friends from attending the classes and my little boy looks forward to meeting all his buddies every week. Overall I am so glad we attended and continue to attend Diana’s classes and I would highly recommend these classes to anyone thinking about it.
