Swimming lessons for children

Ascot Aquatic Centre offers swimming lessons for children, from the age of six months, in a friendly, nurturing and professional environment.

Parent & Me
  • All Sessions Are With Parent/ Carer In The Water

This is an introduction to water familiarisation and socialisation in a group atmosphere with the aim of helping baby (and parent) to feel safe and happy in the water.


During this stage, your child will develop an understanding of instructions/cues and be able to participate more fully and with some independence in the activities with the aim of becoming water safe.

Little Tadpoles

This is an extension of the activities and skills from squirt classes, promoting more independence in the water and interaction between child and instructor, preparing the child to transition to the next stage with no parent in the water.
