Children's Lessons - Junior Swimstars and Otter Scheme:

Otter Pups

These classes are specially aimed at children aged from 10 months to three years of age, accompanied in the water by a parent or carer. Babies are introduced to the water in a safe, calm environment to help them build confidence while having fun. Once they reach the age of three they can move on to our 'Otters' lessons for pre-school children. Lessons last for 30 minutes.


For 3 to 4 1/2 year olds (or when they start full time school). Water confidence lessons. Lessons last for 30 minutes.

To book your Otters or Otter Pups place, please call your preferred Centre. All swimming lessons now run via continuous assessment and a monthly Direct Debit of £22.00.
