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
