If your child has not already been introduced to swimming lessons, it's the perfect time to start. By three and four years old, your toddler is itching to get out and swim on their own – it’s remarkable how quickly their co-ordination and confidence grows.

Pre-school/ toddler swimming classes focus on basic water skills, safety, whilst growing their enjoyment of the water. Swimming programs for kids help your child develop these key life skills at an early age to enable them to remain safer in and around water.

Swimming classes for kids at this age range are kept to a low student/ teacher ratio to enable more swimming time and individual tuition for your child. Northern Arena swimming classes for young children run all year round and are 30 minutes in duration. 

Set by ability rather than by age, a swim assessment is required to start them off at the correct level. The swim classes will constantly challenge development and progression using the most up to date techniques. The progressive swimming model allows your child to move to the next level as soon as they have attained the required criteria and our booking system is designed to make your life as easy as possible.

This progressive swimming model allows your child to move to the next level as soon as they have attained the required criteria - so you don't have to wait until the end of a block of lessons to move up!

"I have a hardheaded, timid 3-year-old and I have never seen anyone get him out of his shell the way Northern Arenas teachers have. Their patience and determination surpassed my expectations! Thank you!" A. Robertson

"Through my own experience of a difficult level change with my daughter and observing your team with others; they are always patient, continually composed (toddlers can be tedious), gentle and persistent. I really wanted to say 'thank you' to your team who continued to accept the situation and persist in helping her through the changes to the next level. It may just be what the job is, but as the parent, I really appreciated the approach and perseverance the team showed - and the support your team also gave me. Thank you - having my daughter learn to swim has been a positive experience and the dedication and skills of your team are much appreciated!" K. Collis

"I just wanted to mention that both our girls’ teachers are awesome! They are both so great with the kids, always calm and patient and friendly but also very good at getting the kids to learn and try everything. Working with young kids can be difficult at times but they impress me every week. Thank you! Cheers" L. Mackay
