Our swimming sessions are an excellent way of helping our children further develop their motor skills. Children with tight or low muscle tone can really benefit from being in warm water.  Whilst the water helps to relax the child and their muscles, the water is also supporting their weight, meaning they are able to carry out more movements than they might otherwise be able to do.  The exercises not only help to increase flexibility and strength, but also improve the child’s stamina.   

 We use a fully heated pool with two qualified instructors who are in the water with the children and parents.  This enables the instructors to show parents how best they can support their child in the water.

Some of the parents who attend our swimming sessions have shared their experience of how taking part in this activity has helped their child.

“Annabella loves her swimming lessons and her confidence in the water is growing with each session. We have managed to encourage Annabella to hold onto the bar at the side of the pool with both hands, a great achievement for Annabella. I would highly recommend!” Christina Turner mother of Annabella.  

“Within a few moments of being in the heated water you could see the pure joy on Connie’s face.  She was splashing about with her arms with the biggest smile on her face.” Laura mother of Connie  

 Swimming sessions take place on a Tuesday and Thursday – 12.30pm to 1.00pm.

Our swimming sessions are offered free of charge to our families and we could not do this without the support of the community.
