Our baby swimming class programme helps babies to become confident in the water. It’s also fantastic fun with games, songs, and entertaining activities that make every moment enjoyable. Each child has an adult partner in the water with them – a parent, family member, or caregiver over the age of 16 years. You will learn to hold, move, and submerge your baby safely.

The Northern Arena babies swimming lessons focus on getting your baby comfortable in the water and teaching them basic co-ordination as well as early awareness and survival skills.  Baby swimming lessons are a great opportunity to strengthen gross & fine motor skills, enhance coordination & balance, provide positive encouragement, help develop social skills, improve cognitive development, and because you’re in the pool with them, it’s a great bonding experience.

Northern Arena’s baby pool is nice and warm so that both you and your child remain comfortable throughout your lesson. The water in the baby's pool is treated by ultraviolet light (similar to the way our drinking water is treated) meaning there are extremely low levels of chlorine which is much nicer on newborn sensitive skin.

Babies can start lessons from 2 months of age. To be eligible for this incredible initiative, the baby must be aged 2-36 months old before 20/07/20

All swimming lessons at Northern Arena are taught by highly trained and accomplished swimming instructors in purpose-built swimming pools and are specifically designed to enhance your child’s enjoyment, confidence, development, and safety in and around water.
