Our Exeter baby swimming lessons are run from a fabulous hydrotherapy pool at Ellen Tinkham School, Hollow Lane, Pinhoe. Close to the M5, this location is easily accessible from Exmouth, Honiton, Tiverton and nearby villages.
Ellen Tinkham School offers great access with lots of parking. Swimming classes are held in a hydrotherapy walk-in swimming pool, kept at 34oC – so perfect for young children learning to swim. The pool depth makes it ideal for baby swimming lessons. There’s a small spectators area for visiting parents. And to help make things easier for you we provide a travel cot to keep young ones in whilst you’re getting changed.
All the below term dates are confirmed and will be taking place at Ellen Tinkham School pool in Exeter, Devon. Swimming classes are 30 minutes & run consecutively in the time slots below. Children will go into the most appropriate class dependent upon your childs age and experience.
All of our teachers understand young children and have a huge amount of experience supporting a variety of abilities. Each of them specialise in the baby, toddler and pre-schooler age groups. Our swimming teachers are the main reason so many of our Paddlers come back term after term.
Mum to Taylor & Alexa, and brilliant with all ages. Kristina loves her job and adores teaching and gets a real buzz from seeing the little ones progress from babies through to independent swimmers.
Jen, Mum to Rafferty, loves teaching babies and children to enjoy their water experience in a fun & safe way. Jen’s lessons are engaging & supportive for both children & parents. Jen’s other passion is working as a global Mountain Leader!
I just wanted to thank you guys for the baby swimming lessons that you gave to Saby & Vendel. Saby has now turned five and swam 50m unassisted across an Olympic pool - proud parents 🙂 Hope you are well, Neil (we now live in Australia)
We would like to thank you for the opportunity for Arfan to be taught his first swims by your instructor Lee. If you are looking for a swimming lesson for your children we recommend you guys! We appreciate Lee's kindness, professionalism and patience. He is Arfan's instructor No.1!
Kristina is excellent with the babies giving lots of encouragement, smiles & keeping the swim lessons fun & interesting. She's given my daughter tremendous confidence in the water. If looking for baby swimming lessons in Exeter then choose Baby Paddlers!
My daughter has now been working with Kristina for two years, and absolutely loves her swimming lessons. She has learnt so much from Kristina, and so have I! Classes are so small, it is practically like having your own private swimming lessons. Recommended for swimming lessons near Exeter!
My 17 month old daughter has made such progress thanks to Kristina's hard work and smiles! Thank you Kristina and Baby Paddlers!
