Advanced Toddler Swim Series comprises of eight progressive levels starting from approximately 2 years of age (minimum 2 years of age) up to 4 years of age for children who have completed all 7 levels of Baby Swim with London Baby Swim or an equivalent swimming lessons provider. Children need to complete the lower levels before moving along the progression to the higher levels.

All our terms are 10 weeks of lessons and each lesson is of 30 minutes duration. In each class we will have a maximum of eight children and eight parents/guardians. The other parent or a family member will be able to watch the lesson from the dedicated viewing area.

Our instructors will make sure parents learn all the safety rules so they can just relax and have fun with their babies.

Your child has already been building his/her confidence in the water and this will be the time to put into practice all the skills learned on the Baby Swim Series. Now your child is relaxed and confident in the water, it will allow him/her to have even more fun as they will start to move more independently in the water. You will be surprised by your child’s abilities and swimming skills.

As safety is our first priority, your instructor will make sure you learn new safety skills and rules to take care of a toddler in the water and surroundings. As children already understand lots of concepts, our instructors will make sure to teach them life saving skills and pool safety whilst still having lots of fun. Kids get ready for lots of Run and Jump on our big float!

FAQ's

What is the maximum group size?

The maximum number of children in one lesson is 8.

Is my baby safe in the water?

Babies have a natural affinity with the water. They become totally liberated, as water is a free environment for them. We all have an inborn "gag reflex" and the "mammalian dive reflex" but it is generally strongest in babies up to 6 months old, these enable them to hold their breath underwater naturally and keep supplying oxygen to the main organs, which help us to provide a gentle introduction to submersions. They also have primitive swimming stroke actions up to 6 months of age and can propel themselves through the water. London Baby Swim builds upon babies natural reflexes to enable your baby to be completely happy moving in and through the water.

Do parents need to be confident swimmers?

No, although one of the parents or responsible adult need to be in the pool with the babies, the pool is shallow enough for parents to stand up. Our teachers are fully trained and experienced in helping parents to feel confident in the water. We will assist you with the submersion exercises for your child if you do not want to go underwater, although it is a wonderful experience to share with your child.

Do You Offer Make-up Lessons (Catch up lessons)?

YES, London Baby Swim offers 3 FREE makeup lessons (catch up lessons) per term/per child for any missed lesson. However, there are some steps to follow in order to take advantage of this service. For more information, please refer to London Baby Swim Terms and Conditions Section 6)

How do Make-up Lessons Work?

When you cancel your lesson, for whatever the reason, we use that space as a makeup lesson for another parent who missed a lesson; so without parents letting us know in advance they are not attending, there is no opportunity to replace lessons for anyone. That is why it is so important that parents let us know in advance about their absence by emailing us with a minimum of 24 hours notice (preferably more) prior to their course. London Baby Swim offers this service as a goodwill gesture and it is not a statutory right, not having any legal obligation to offer a makeup lesson(s) or refund/credit for non-attended lesson(s). For more information, please refer to London Baby Swim Term and Conditions Section 6)

What if my child is ill?

Never come to your swimming lesson if you and/or your child have any illness, such as, but not limited to: chest infection, conjunctivitis, measles, impetigo, ear infections, asthma or a heavy cold (first days of the cold). Please DO NOT come to your swimming lesson until the symptoms have cleared at least 48 hours prior to your swimming lesson or when your doctor has given the all-clear.
If your child has just a runny nose but feels happy and active, you will be able to come to your swimming lesson unless your GP has advised you otherwise.
Under no circumstances must anyone suffering from diarrhoea or vomiting attend swimming during illness and up to 2 weeks after full recovery and stools have returned to normal.
If you are concerned about any medical condition, we ask that you always check with your GP before coming to any lessons.
