Parent and Child Swimming

 Here at Birch Farm we have our own specialised parent and child classes, with our Jelly Fish  classes ideal for babies from birth to 18 months and our  Octopus classes for older babies and toddlers up to 3 yrs,
Classes offer parents and children the chance to bond and learn the basic skills needed to get your child ready for swimming lessons on their own.
Our classes are fun and no pressure to swim under water or with your child on you unless you want to and our small classes (max 8 ) are charged at reasonable rates. Our 3 term a year programme ensures progression but also gives a chance for a break as well.
Classes available 
Monday / Wednesday and Saturday mornings or Tuesday and Friday afternoons.

Swim England recommend that you start baby swimming after you have built up your baby’s water confidence by getting them used to being in water both at home and in the pool.

The perfect start for you and your baby is to attend adult and child sessions which allow your child to get used to being in the water in a small group of people. It also helps to give you more confidence in supporting your child in the water. Birch Farm teachers are all level 2 qualified and all our teachers are either lifeguard or NRASTC trained. Additional parent and child teaching qualifications have also been achieved by some of our teachers.

These sessions start to teach your child the basic skills they need to learn to swim including how to move in water, floating, streamlining and how to get in and out of the pool safely.
