Baby Splash & Little Splashers

Baby Splash sessions are for babies up to 2 years* of age. Babies can join in as soon as parents are comfortable to bring them to the pool (before vaccinations) but please consult your midwife/health visitor about the right time to start for you and your baby. Our Little Splashers sessions are aimed at preschool children, ages 2 to 4* years. Sessions are designed for parents/guardians to spend time in the water to increase children’s water confidence in a structured fun/play session.

Baby Splash and Little Splashers sessions both cover:

  • How to support your child’s movement in the pool
  • Safe entries, how to turn and hold the side
  • Underwater confidence, starting with washing faces and blowing bubbles
  • Progressing to floating and performing push and glides between the parent and teacher

Once children are happy and confident in the water the swimming teacher will advise you to move to the Swim Tots classes which links directly with the Junior Lessons. In the early stages, the lessons focus on relaxation and flotation, body position, underwater confidence and rotation.

*Our age range for Baby Splash and Little Splashers are a guide to age ranges, but if you have any queries please email the Swim Team for more information.

IMPORTANT: All Baby Splash and Little Splashers bookings must be made in advance through your child's online account. If your child does not have an online account, please click here to register them as a casual member first. Instructions on how to book can be found here.
