Baby swimming lessons in Southampton, Hampshire

Baby Squids Southampton

Our Southampton baby swimming classes are run from a lovely family friendly pool at Novotel Southampton Hotel. It is located in the centre of Southampton, right next to West Quay. It can easily be accessed from the M27, so ideal for customers from Eastleigh, Romsey and Chandlers Ford.

Central hotel pool

Classes are held in a fabulous hotel pool that is kept at around 30-31C, hence this pool is suitable for children aged 3 months plus. There’s room around the pool for spectators (we know how much the grandparents love to watch) and the hotel has a separate area with toys and soft cushions, if you need to feed your child after the lesson. You can use the hotel car park; pay and display is applicable.

About the pool

We love teaching at the Novotel Southampton Hotel because it’s a lovely light pool, surrounded by glass, a really nice pool to teach kids to swim. Added bonus is its near John Lewis and the High Street for some post swim shopping and refreshments!

Since starting Baby Squids nearly a year ago, my son has just loved it. He looks forward to swimming every week and often talks about it to other family members. He’s so confident in the water now, and I’m really impressed with how well he’s done. All the instructors we have seen have been excellent – friendly, happy and they really enjoy helping the children to swim. Aimee Ellis – Southampton

I have been taking my son Arlo to baby squids since before he was one and he is now 3 and a half. Emma is an absolutely fantastic teacher. She is so patient and enthusiastic about what she does and Arlo is always so excited to be in the water. My son has ASD and Emma is so inclusive and goes above and beyond to make sure that he feels comfortable. She made visual support cards for him too! I now take my three month old daughter Maeve and I cannot think of anywhere else for her swimming journey to begin. Thank you for everything Emma! Anisha Keane – Southampton, Hampshire
