Swimming Lessons - Children

Teaching your children an important life skill the fun way. We love swimming and love teaching children to swim and can teach them in group sessions or private 1:1 lessons!

What level is my swimmer?

We have compiled this helpful guide to give an indication of what level you swimmer is. Please note: all levels are subject to revision if a teacher deems that to be necessary.

Types of Lesson

We love swimming and we love to teach children to swim. It’s so rewarding for them to achieve this important life skill, but more than anything, at Swimtime, they have great fun while they are learning.

We offer two types of lessons depending on your objectives and budget:

  • Group Lessons - typically 6 students
  • Private Lessons - 1:1, 2:1s and 3:1s

Our group lessons are our most popular type of lessons.

Operating up and down the UK, these lessons are grouped based on ability and see children progressing through our Swimtime Award Scheme, developed by in house aquatic experts.

Classes are grouped based on your child's experience of swimming and being in the water.

Private Lessons

There are times when you feel your child needs just a bit of extra attention: they may be nervous about getting into the pool, require some additional teaching on a particular stroke or skill, or would like some advanced coaching to improve their personal best.

The beauty of a Swimtime private lesson is that you can choose what you would like your child to achieve, you can make the sessions fit in with your busy schedule, and you can book as many lessons as you like.

Private options available up to 3 students in a class.
