Baby Swimming Lessons

Baby swimming classes are a fantastic way to give your child confidence in water, and provide a special time with just them for you to enjoy fully. We have been running baby swimming lessons with qualified teachers for over 18 years in Yorkshire and Derbyshire making thousands of wonderful memories and lots of great little swimmers.

The key aim of our course is to develop water confidence and safety in a fun and engaging environment for your child. Throughout the session your child will benefit from increasing strength, coordination and cardio-vascular exercises, our teaching focuses on each individual child in small groups with consistent teaching staff. Find out more about the benefits of baby swimming.

We take little ones aged 0-4 on our swimbabes programme. Our preliminary 1 level is for little swimmers aged 0-18 months who have not swam before and they can they progress through the swimbabes programme with many little swimmers staying until they go to school. Little swimmers who have swam elsewhere can also join the programme at the level most suited to their age and experience – for more details on this see https://www.swimbabeslessons.co.uk/baby-swimming-lessons/the-4-levels-of-baby-swimming-lessons/

For swimmers aged 2 -4 years who have no swimming experience we offer our 2+ splashers programme at several of our venues.


The 4 Levels of Pre School Swimming

Our first term level for all little swimmers who have not swam before aged 0-18 months. A teacher will be with you at all times to make sure you’re doing okay and to gently guide you through the early swimbabes programme skills. Each lesson will start with a ‘warm up’, and concentrate on the swim holds introduced from week 1, ending with a song as a group. Your first lesson will be a gentle introduction for you and your baby getting used to being in the water and spending some precious bonding time with your child. Don’t worry, we won’t ask you to do anything too advanced like submersions in the first lesson, it’s all about getting you and your child comfortable in the water.

What parents have said

I have been swimming with both of my children from 4 months old. I can’t recommend Swimbabes enough, especially Rachel who has really helped both the boys with their swimming confidence.
