SWIMBiES is our new exciting Baby and Toddler swimming lesson programme at Tiller Leisure Centre. Our baby swimming lessons centre around a child-focused approach, offering a syllabus of fun in the water for confidence that lasts a lifetime.

As a parent, grandparent or guardians you join your little ones in the pool to share first splashes, laughs and fun, with time to share those little moments, as your child develops in the water. It's a fun, safe and calm environment, led by trained and qualified SWIMBiES Teachers who will be with you and your little one every step of the way.

We have sessions taking place every Saturday morning at Tiller Leisure Centre. Lessons include:

Dippers: Entry at three months to cruising (approx. 12-18 months). Dippers sessions give you time to bond while we teach your child the basics.

Splashers: Entry after completing Dippers or children walking (approx. 12 to 18 months) to two years. Following on from Dippers, Splashers sessions are a great way to grow their water confidence with you right beside them.

Paddlers: Entry after completing Paddlers or children aged three to four years old. Moving on from Splashers, Paddlers sessions build on the fundamentals and prepares them for swimming independently.

Our SWIMBiES swimming lessons have a strong emphasis on your child’s enjoyment, aiming to help you:

Build water confidence for you and your baby

Bond with your little one through exercise

Develop your child’s coordination, muscle strength and motor skills

Understand safety exercises to ensure both you and your baby are protected

Try games and songs to help your child learn

To us, a child's emotional development is just as important as their physical development in the water. This is why our SWIMBiES programme features plenty of bonding time as well as developing eight essential Baby & Toddler swimming skills.
