Adult and Child  Duckling Classes  Baby Splash sessions

Adult and Child

Our adult and child classes run at our centres at various times throughout the week. They are specifically designed for children aged 2 1/2 - 3 years old who have gained basic skills in the water but need to develop confidence to be able to swim independently - with mum and dad only there for support if needed!

Duckling Classes

Our Duckling pre-school lessons are the Foundation stage to our Begin Well lessons. In keeping with the ASA's Learn to Swim Framework, the natural progression from Adult and Child, is into our Duckling classes. This is a targeted programme for developing early-years water confidence and independence. The emphasis in these lessons is to introduce very basic motor skills in the water through games and fun.

For information on any of the above classes or lessons click here to contact your nearest centre.

Baby Splash sessions

Each of Trafford's 5 swimming pools has specific 'drop in' sessions for families with under 5's. They are a perfect way for parents to introduce children to the water in a controlled, safe and fun environment. All of our sessions are staffed by a qualified ASA Level 2 swimming teacher who can give you tips and guidance on how best to help your baby learn to love the water!

We provide a nice, clean and safe swimming pool as well as loads of fun toys, floats and equipment for you to use......and the rest is up to you!
