A great time to start building confidence in the water. The first year is all about playing, enjoying cuddles and getting used to the movement and feel of the water.

What everyone is saying

start quotes

Baby squids is a fantastic baby swimming school, with great teachers and brilliant facilities and equipment. I have taken my son since he was 4 months, now nearly 2 years and we both love it! Interactive swimming lessons with singing are a fun way to learn. The teachers are so enthusiastic, they really help you learn how to be confident and safe in the water with your baby or children. Great value for money. I highly recommend it! Sophie Boynton, New

We have been doing Baby Squids baby swimminglessons since my little girl was 6 months old and, at first, I was skeptical about whether the lessons would help progress her any better than the generic leisure centre swimming lessons but we’re into our third term now and the difference is amazing!
Lauren is a fabulous teacher and all the
babies absolutely love it. Rianna Rudd,

Having tried several other baby swimmingschools in the area, I have always returned back to Baby Squids swimming lessons. The teachers are fantastic, my kids absolutely love it, and the lessons are varied and progress at the pace of my children. It’s one of the highlights of our week. RhianJones, Sway
