Our Parent and Child Transition classes are held at our Lee Chapel Pool location in Basildon and are designed for swimmers who are age two plus, where the emphasis will be to teach the children directly but with parent support in the water. 

Learning should always be fun and through play!

The aim of this class  is to help to get the children prepared and ready to move onto independent group lessons when they are ready.   Parents will try to have less and less involvement during the lessons as the courses move forward, with eventually (when ready for both Swimmers and Parents!)  for  them not being needed in the water at all.

We have one parent only accompanying each swimmer, this ensures that we do not end up with more adults than children in the classes each week!    You can of course alternate each week so that both parents have the opportunity to enjoy the classes.

We have a maximum of only seven “pairs” booked into these classes,  to ensure that there are enough children & parents attending each week to give the class group a fun & enjoyable swimming experience, but still keeping the group size small enough  to ensure that we deliver first class lessons in a safe, calm and relaxed learning environment.

Following the Swim England Duckling Awards, the classes will have the same format as our independent classes for familiarity.

Many children go through a phase where they may be clingy or nervous prior to independent activities.   Some children who were really confident as babies & toddlers go through phases of fear as they develop and this is very normal.  Close contact and lots of reassurance during class is all that is needed to help overcome any fears.

You are able to join at any time during a course if space is available and pay only for the remaining classes from that point.
