6 there will be 2 teachers and a maximum of 9 children in a class.
What do we need to bring to swimming lessons?
For adult lessons, you will only need to bring swim wear and a towel.
For child lessons, you will need to bring swim wear, a NeoNappy
(if your little one is not yet toilet trained) and a towel. We recommend you bring a changing mat to change baby on.
What do I wear for swimming lessons?
A swimming costume or trunks.
What does my child need to wear for swimming lessons?
If your child is confidently using the toilet, then a swimming costume or trunks. If your child is not yet toilet trained then we require a double nappy system - an under nappy (such as a bambino mio swim nappy) then a neoprene happy nappy over the top.Please try and avoid overly baggy
as these create 'Drag' in the water
How do I look after my NeoNappy?
To look after your NeoNappy and ensure the Lycra lasts as long as possible
it is important to care for it properly.
After use, hand rinse in cold water as soon as possible to remove chlorine.
If you need to wash the nappy (if it has been soiled) then wash at 30
degrees with a gentle detergent. Do not use fabric softener. Dry away from
a heat source in the shade. Do not tumble dry. Do not iron.
Your neoprene nappy should fit nice and snug, this is to prevent any
spillages from the thighs and waistband. You should be able to fit one
finger inside the thigh band and the waist band. If you are unsure, please
ask your teacher who will advise.
Accidents in the pool can, and do, cause pool closures and have cancelled lessons so please be vigilant. No-one knows babies cues better than their grown-ups. If you see signs that they are going to fill the nappy, please exit
the pool until you have changed your little one.
Can my child wear a swimming hat or goggles?
Yes. With goggles - For some nervous children allowing googles can make a world of difference, especially during beginning stages . During the later stages we perform some skills
without googles for water safety skills.
Can we have a catch up lesson if we can't make one week?
Catch up lessons are given 'IF' we have an alternate time and space.
These can only be offered if there is space.
Is car parking available?
Yes. Our Aston pool is road side parking within school hours

Unfortunately there is no room for prams / car seats inside the building due to space. Please leave these in your vehicle.

No food will be allowed poolside.
Can we enrol mid-term?
Yes. Providing there is space available in the class.
