A daily dose of movement for you and your child. Our Fun & Fit sessions vary from playing games to creating obstacle courses and going for a walk to circus skills. The session is included in the £5 Role Play entry fee.
Rhyme Time gives your child the opportunity to learn lots of sounds, stories and rhymes. As daft as you may feel making silly noises and singing kiddy songs to your child, it really is vital for their language development. Sessions are included in the £5 per family entry fee.
We’ll teach you to teach your baby to swim. From lesson one, we’ll get your little one used to the sensation of the water, developing their natural instincts and transforming these into core aquatic skills. By the end of our programme, your little one will be swimming freely using different strokes and be able to keep themselves safe in and around the water. We work closely with Swim England, the national governing body for swimming and we’ve woven their learn to swim framework through our programme. So you’ll be simply amazed at the progress they make. And not only will they be able to swim independently and have learnt a skill for life – they will have grown in confidence too. Our lessons are intimate, with a maximum of 8 little ones, a carer per child and one of our teachers in the pool at any one time. They’re up to 30 minutes long and take place each week during school term time, so it’s a wonderful way to bond with your baby away from the craziness of life. Skills are taught through song, play and repetition, so there’s never a dull moment when you’re in the pool. We swim with little ones up to school age and you can join our baby or toddler programme at any time, regardless of any previous swimming experience. Our teachers will tailor each lesson to your little one’s ability, so it’s only when they’re ready that we’re ready. Lessons are progressive and must be booked in advance.
