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.

Our daughter has been taking lessons the parent and toddler group for the past 2.5 years, since she was 6 months old. She loves the lessons, she has gotten so comfortable and confident in the water. The lessons are a perfect mix of fun activities interlaced with the learning of key water skills. The pace of the lessons is excellent while new and more challenging aspects are introduced at appropriate stages. We are very happy with the classes and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

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.

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.
