Did you know that swimming can improve a baby’s appetite and sleep? Or that your 4-year- old may have greater self-confidence thanks to swimming in their early years? There are so many benefits to bringing your baby, toddler or preschooler to swimming lessons.
But, for most families, enjoyment and bonding are the main reasons they love our Junior Splash swim classes.
Junior Splash currently takes place weekly in:
Week by week, you and your little one will enjoy spending time together in the water. Your child will make gentle but steady progress under the expert eye of our Junior Splash instructors.
Meanwhile, you’ll have the pleasure of being beside your child as they develop in a whole new way. Imagine watching their excitement as they kick in the water. Or feeling a sense of pride as they float for the first time.
You’ll find yourself feeling more confident about bringing your child to the pool or beach for fun family outings. You’ll also enjoy the social aspect of Junior Splash: meeting other parents and caregivers at a similar stage to you.
“Just finished up our first term with our 2 year old! Watching how far she has come in the last few weeks has been amazing! Couldn’t recommend Neil enough for his help and support with her, as a new parent he just made it so easy and fun and very encouraging!” J McDonagh, via Google Review

Because of this, we split our swimming classes to reflect the specific needs of babies, toddlers and preschoolers:
However, even with this split, your child will be encouraged to progress at their own pace. As they learn, they’ll focus on four main areas: propulsion, flotation, rotation and submersion. And, of course, it all happens in a friendly, fun-filled environment.
“Without a doubt, the best part of it all for me is the ‘WOW’ factor or the ‘Eureka’ moment…this can be from the parent and/or child when they float for the first time independently or blow bubbles”. Neil, Junior Splash Instructor
