We love Ashurst; some lovely independent shops located in the centre of the beautiful New Forest. If you haven’t been we’d highly recommend a visit to The New Forest Wildlife Park!

What everyone is saying

start quotes
Baby Squids New Forest is fantastic, 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 classes 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/ children. Great value for money. I highly recommend it! Sophie Boynton – Lymington

We have been doing Baby Squids lessons 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 classes 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 – Bournemouth

Having tried several other swimming schools in the area, I have always returned back to Baby Squids. 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. Rhian Jones – Sway
