All our swimming pools in Harlow are lovely and warm and kept at above 30 degrees. We take children from 3 years of age.

Your little one will go in alone with an instructor in the pool while you sit close by and watch their progress. Your child must be at least 0.9m in height to attend these lessons.  We run 1-2-1 lessons for children and adults as well as our crash courses where your child will learn to swim in 4 days.  Both these options are held during half terms and school holidays.

All our children classes have just 4-5 pupils so they excel quickly. Each lesson is 30 minutes and follows the Swim England badge scheme for Levels 1-6
