Baby Swimming Bournemouth

Baby & Toddler Swimming Lessons in Bournemouth, Dorset

Swimming Lessons in Bournemouth

We run weekly classes at two pools around Bournemouth; Moordown St John’s School, Moordown & at St Michael’s Middle School in Colehill, Wimborne. Both are fantastic warm water pools with great facilities for parents and babies.

Our teachers Emma, Elaine & Natalie teach children aged 0-4 years, and all deliver a programme that works with your child’s individual developmental stage.

Swimming provides a great bonding and sensory experience and from the first splash, to the first kick and the all-important first swim, we will work with you and your baby teaching water confidence and water safety as well as having lots of fun!

The Baby Paddlers Way

At Baby Paddlers we are passionate about teaching children to swim. That’s why all our courses are designed with the STA, and we’re extremely proud to have gained the STA Swim Star stamp of approval.  This recognises swim schools that work to the highest standards in safety, teaching and customer service.

We understand what makes a great instructor and are pleased that all of ours are also parents so really do understand what’s important to you.

And we only allow a maximum of 8 children per class, which gives our teachers a great opportunity to get to know your baby and to run lessons to suit their pace.

Our Prices

We work hard to offer our customers very competitive prices, whilst ensuring great quality swimming lessons and a fantastic
 service. It’s one of the reasons we think our existing paddlers come back term after term.

Our classes run for 30 minutes and a six week course, at Moordown St John’s School, Bournemouth or St Michael’s Middle School, Colehill, Wimborne costs just £63. We also offer a 10% sibling discount for those that have more than one child swimming with us.

Classes are payable in half term block bookings and payment is required in advance via bank transfer.

Our Bournemouth Swimming Lessons

warm swimming pool

Moordown St John’s School Pool

Moordown St John’s School is located on Vicarage Road, between Moordown and Winton.

The pool is a warm water, stepped entry pool – great for beginners & the shallow waters make it ideal for nervous swimmers.

There’s lots of parking available, both in the school car park and on the road and an area poolside for spectators too (we know how much the grandparents love to watch).

Splash, Kick, Swim

When it comes to swimming classes, we understand what’s important to parents & babies – We work with the STA to design progressive swim classes that work to get the most from your swim lesson & we’re very proud to have gained the STA Swim Star stamp of approval.

Our Bournemouth swimming classes are designed to work in parallel with your child’s physical & mental development.  Children develop differently and that’s why we hold small classes to ensure each child gets the most from every session.
