Build their confidences

Success is determined by confidence, which is why it's important to encourage every little achievement in the development of your child's confidence in the water. Whether it be being able to dip one's head underwater without assistance or swimming independently.

Every success is through fun and informative lessons that build up your child's overall confidence in the water.

Teach them water safety

There's nothing more important than your child's safety.

Teaching children vital safety skills on how to swim as soon as possible prevents them from developing a fear of the water and gives them the knowledge necessary to keep themselves safe whenever they are in the water.


Build their strength quicker

Swimming strengthens your little one's heart and lungs, as well as their arm, leg and neck muscles. All this helps with their coordination and balance. It even aids a healthy appetite and improves their sleeping pattern.

Develop their social skills

The pool is the ideal place for your little one to develop their social interaction as they play with other babies in the class. It's also a brilliant way for you to meet other like-minded parents too!

Swim England strongly recommend, where possible, that parents and carers keep their children in swimming lessons until they have completed Learn to Swim Stages 2 to 7, which ensures they are water competent, rather than just water confident.”
