Sing and play through our structured awards programme and see your baby progress to a confident little swimmer. From 6 weeks old to 12 years old.
Babies can start at Baby Swimmers as soon as you and baby are ready and happy to do so and through fun and games we progressively develop your babies natural reflexes to encourage voluntary swimming movements in the water which will build a foundation for your baby to swim unaided.
Baby Swimmers benefits both parents and babies as whilst you are interacting and bonding in the water together, you are also benefiting from learning water safety and increased water confidence. It is also physically and mentally beneficial for your baby and enjoyable for you both.
Research has shown that early swimming can benefit your baby by helping to develop water confidence, strength, co-ordination & alertness, whilst also learning water safety and having fun.
We follow the Starfish Awards through the STA and once children are aged over 2 they progress on to the Stanley Awards. Once your child reaches 5, they progress onto Swimmers Academy, where we develop swimming techniques and build stamina, classes here are for beginners as well as children that have been through the Baby Swimmers courses.

Children can go in by themselves at any age, when they are confident enough, I do not have a starting age limit. I treat every child as an individual and they progress happily at their own pace , with this in mind, all swimmers receive an STA certificate and woven badge each term, which are included in your fee.
Classes are fun based and relaxed with only 7 children in each class and the whole pool to ourselves, with only one lesson running at a time, which offers little distraction from other swimmers and lots of space. Children really enjoy their lessons and thrive learning to swim. I get to know all the children individually and adapt my teaching accordingly.
With over 10 years teaching experience, including my own 3 children, I am fully qualified STA Swimming Instructor, STA baby and pre-school teacher, lifesaving and recently completed Level 3 Diploma in Aquatic Teaching for Baby and Pre-school. Do check out my recommendations on Facebook!
Turtle Tots North Yorkshire is a unique Swimming School starting with Mummies-to-be with Aqua Natal Yoga through to Baby, Toddler and Pre-school classes and School age children, so your child’s swimming journey doesn’t need to end at Pre-school stage with us, they continue into our Academy classes where they can feel safe and happy with familiar surroundings.
We pride ourselves on being a very different and holistic swim school and class emphasis is on nurturing the parent & child bond in the water at all stages. We start with gentle water massage and closeness with your baby in the early stages, whilst also teaching through play/word association. Our toddler and pre-school classes we teach them water safety skills, basic stroke skills, while keeping their attention span stimulated with lots of fun activity play and progression into independent swimming, but most importantly at their own pace. Our Turtle Swim Academy classes are suitable from 3.5 years old (confidence and ability assessed) open to existing swimmers from the Turtle Tots programme, children starting for the first time with swimming classes or transferring from other swim schools.
