What everyone is saying

My daughter has now been working with Kristina for two years, and absolutely loves her swimming lessons. She has learnt so much from Kristina, and so have I! Classes are so small, it is practically like having your own private swimming lessons. Recommended for swimming lessons near Exeter! Caroline Neal – Exeter, Devon
