What everyone is saying

start quotes
I would definitely recommend these Colchester swimming lessons. I took my 2 year old and at first he was unsure of the water and pool. Alice made us feel welcome and encouraged to carry on, and by the end of term he didn’t want to get out the pool! I was so glad for her patience and look forward to next term. The pool area is also really nice and clean and always lovely and warm. Katie Stevenson – Walton-on-the-Naze

Amazing lessons, perfect for my 9 month old daughter! Alice is engaging, helpful and makes swimming with your little one a real bonding experience. Would definitely recommend Baby Squids to any mama’s wanting to take their babies swimming for the first time! The pool facilities are also excellent and clean which is fantastic.

Having tried several other swim classes in the area, I have always returned back to Baby Squids Colchester. The teachers are awesome, my daughter loves going, and the lessons are varied and progress at the right pace for us. We have been coming for over 6 months now and keep coming back. Simone Walters, Colchester
