Our Parent and Child 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 with parent support in the water, these classes naturally follow on from our Parent and Baby classes.  Floating, breath control, grip and kicking are the fundamental first steps when learning to swim.

Learning should always be fun and through play!

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 Eight “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 at this age.  Some children who were really confident as babies & toddlers go through phases of fear as they develop and this is very normal.  Close contact, lots of reassurance, patience  and praise during class is all that is needed to help overcome any newly developed 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.
