Our Winchester baby swimming classes are run from Shepherds Down School hydrotherapy pool, in Compton, just to the south of Winchester.
The hydrotherapy pool is kept at about 34C – perfect for keeping your little one warm so no wetsuit is required. Babies need to be over 6 months to swim at this venue due to school regulations. There is plenty of car parking available at the school, and plenty of space for spectators.. The changing areas are quite small, so an easy change of clothes is recommended.
All the below term dates are confirmed and will be taking place at Shepherds Down School hydrotherapy pool in Winchester, Hampshire. 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 of one, Viki has previous experience working with children at a day nursery, and now combines a love for swimming with teaching. Viki is an enthusiastic teacher, who loves to see children enjoying their time in the water and increasing in confidence each lesson.
Viki's patience, encouragement, brilliantly planned & pitched swim lessons & outstanding teaching style have had a huge impact on the remarkable progress and water confidence Jasper has gained since joining your classes - and I can confidently say that being an Assistant Headteacher myself!
Charlie and I've both really enjoyed our classes. Alex is a great teacher, calm & confident with a big smile that puts everyone instantly at ease. The lessons are fun & relaxed with songs and games and lots to keep the little ones busy and active in the water. Highly recommended for kids swimming lessons in Winchester!
Thomas and I have had a fantastic time with Alex at Winchester Hospital hydro pool. He started swimming lessons when he was 7 weeks and now at nearly 6 months he doesn't have any problems with going under the water, getting splashed or swimming on his front or back. Thank you Baby Paddlers.
In my honest opinion, swimming lessons with Baby Paddlers have been the best thing I've done with my baby. We have been swimming since he was 8 weeks old and now he's 11 months and so full of confidence in the water.
Our teacher Nicky has been fantastic! Oskar has really loved this term & I've really noticed a difference in him really enjoying the swimming lessons as well as kicking away and mainly splashing haha! She's a great teacher and it's nice to see someone really enjoy their job too!
Fabulous swimming lessons! Really look forward to each week!
My 8 month old loves his baby swimming lessons with plenty of happy splashing in the pool! Alex the instructor is very clear and great with the babies. Great value for money too.
Highly recommended. My son Noah has been attending classes since he was 4 months and is now 17 months. Laura & her team have been fab & as a result Noah is very confident and happy to be in the water. Don't hesitate in trying them out if you are looking for swimming lessons for your baby!
Thank you for the brilliant swimming lesson with my 5 month old Oscar. We are 4 sessions in and love every second! He is getting so confident and loves splashing himself and me!
Rufus is a confident, happy and able swimmer. At just 2, under Laura's guidance he has accomplished so much. He has progressed far more than we could have imagined by this age. Look no further for Winchester baby swimming lessons!
Book up for a course of lessons and if after your first class you decide it’s not for you we offer a full refund to all new customers.
It’s a chance for you to meet the team and enjoy a Splash, Kick and Swim the Baby Paddler way.
We love teaching at Shepherds Down School in Winchester because you couldn’t find a pool more suitable for babies and toddlers to learn to swim. A lovely warm hydrotherapy pool, small with stepped entry, space for spectators and convenient to get to… we feel very lucky to be able to use it!
