Our favourite place for a post swim coffee is right opposite to our Ferndown pool, The Flying Teapot, give it a try after swimming to refill on energy! For outdoor fun (and free), the beach is an obvious choice, but nearby Moors Valley always gets our vote too!

What everyone is saying

My baby son and I love baby squids swimming classes! The classes are the prefect length for him, and he loves all the exercises during the class using such fun and brightly coloured props, with songs and meeting other baby friends. It really is a highlight of our week, and the classes are really well designed for teaching him to feel comfortable in the water and for starting to learn how to swim. The pool is also so warm and lovely to swim in too – a lovely small and intimate class babies and parents. I’d highly recommend it and will be signing up again and again. Thanks so much! Sarah Bradbury, Ferndown

We absolutely LOVE Baby Squids. We have just started taking our second child after taking our first a few years ago. The sessions are well planned, the songs are very catchy and the teachers are always friendly and enthusiastic. Not only is swimming a really important thing to start young (my daughter is 4 months) but it’s such a lovely bonding time too. She really enjoys her time in the pool. We cannot recommend Baby Squids highly enough. Emma Benham,

I started bringing my son to Baby Squids when he was just 6 months old after a negative experience with another swimming school and we have both absolutely loved every class! Baby Squids really does instil a love of water and swimming and every class is filled with fun, toys, songs and learning. I would highly recommend Baby Squids and the wonderful team to anyone looking to build their babies confidence and love of the water! Leanne Barnes, Bournemouth
