Attended our first taster today (Daughter is 13 months) after being recommended by a friend. I was so impressed with amount we learned, how well planned the session was and the nice, friendly Instructor! I love the fact you have two flexi catch up sessions too if you can't attend some as many courses don't give this option. We have signed up for the rest of the term and the new term. We can't wait!


Me and my daughter have been going now for three months and she loves it so much she smiles the whole time it's amazing. Also the staff are amazing and so friendly and you can tell they love there job. I would so recommend it.


Very fun interactive classes. My daughter (Nelly-May) started with Turtle tots at approx age 8 months old and she still loves it aged 2.5 yrs old now. She now has to join the bigger swimmers in a bigger pool as she is progressing so well and has out grown our local pool. Very good swimming school, with bubbly and friendly swim teachers.


I previously attended Turtle Tots sessions with my daughter in 2012 for around 2 years. Jo was our teacher for the majority of the time and I just wanted to pass on how fantastic I think your classes are. Olivia started pre-school swimming lessons at a local pool last June and within a month she was moved up classes twice due to her ability. She is so confident in the water, loves being under the water and is swimming on her own. She turned 4 on Monday. Her current teacher says she has so much potential and know that is because of what she did at Turtle Tots.


My children have been swimming with Turtle Tots for over a year now, since my daughters previous swimming provider stopped offering lessons. My daughter was 16 months and my son just 13 days! I have been very impressed with not only the progress both my children have made over the past year, my daughter can swim a short distance underwater and my son can float on his back unaided, but equally with Turtle Tots friendly but professional approach. The correspondence they send is on time and informative... the fees are quite reasonable, but above all, the teachers really take an interest in your child and their development and form great relationships with them. I would highly recommend Turtle Tots to anyone looking for a safe, friendly and welcoming environment in which their children can learn to swim.

A massive thank you to Anne for a fantastic summer school at Wraxall. We had an amazing time and are sad that it has ended. The classes were worth every penny! We progressed lots and had so much fun.

Thank you for everything you have done to make William's Turtle Tots experience a fantastic one! I have loved bringing William to the sessions. We've had fun, laughter, tears and tantrums but through it all I have watched him develop the most amazing confidence in water, learn how to be safe and above all, show a genuine love of swimming. From his first submersion as a baby to his superb independence to dive it and swim unaided recently, it has been fantastic! We are sad to be leaving, but wish you continued success in doing such a wonderful job.

We have liked and shared. We have also liked and shared the experiences we've had with Turtle Tots. Whenever we go swimming, people always comment on how confident Arch is. His ability is priceless. Thank you! X

Oscar´s confidence and skill set in the water is amazing and our new instructor is amazed with his abilities. Oscar thinks he´s ready to swim! We hadn´t been swimming since the summer and I am amazed how well he remembered his Turtle Tots skills. Your lessons were always well planned, structured and delivered. Our teacher Nik is fantastic! Fun, relaxed and in control. When we first started Oscar was only 10 weeks old and I always felt that we were in a safe environment. I also really liked the focus on getting Mums back into shape. I can´t recommend Turtle Tots enough.

I just wanted to say that Henry and I have had a fantastic time in your Turtle Tots classes and my reasons for now booking with another company are purely related to class timings.Your energy and enthusiasm (and amazing ability to remember babies names) will be hard to match! It's likely my work pattern will change again next year so hopefully we can rejoin you and Henry's friends again at Turtle Tots.

A Twitter testimonial: We love @turtletots_east so much we decided to sign up for Level 3. It's been worth every penny and more. Tutor Jo is lovely

I have always felt strongly about my baby learning to swim at an early age and am really pleased I have booked classes at Soundwell pool. I find the classes really fast paced and they learn so much each week - it's incredible to see Scarlett hold onto the side of the pool and keep her own body weight and kick at such an early age. She really enjoys the classes and I love the singing and general friendliness of the classes. Am impressed that Jo remembers all our names too! It's all really professionally run and I can't recommend it enough to anyone.

Turtle Tots is great. My 5 month old loves it and I do too. It's great watching them learn and see how well they adapt under the water, it's a great bonding experience too. My eldest son has just started lessons too and the confidence he's got in the last couple of weeks is fab. Jo really takes the time with each child and makes them feel confident in the water. The instructors are very friendly and make you feel really welcome I have recommended turtle tots to many of my friends. We look forward to each lesson.

Another fab term with Turtle Tots. Really proud of William and the progress he has made and the confidence he is now showing. Huge thanks to both Nik and yourself for all your hard work with him in the water.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for what you did Saturday. Jacob's grandparents had travelled 140 miles from their home to spend a few days with us and to watch him swim for the first time. Jacob's grandad is suffering with cancer so they haven't been able to come to us and the majority of the visits have been us going there. So, he was desperate to see Jacob swim and we are truly grateful you were still able to make this happen despite the cancellation of the lesson. I know you didn't have to do this and it really was above the call of duty so I just wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude.

Just to say thanks for recommending and allowing us to swap to Level 4 last term, Mia has really enjoyed herself and got on really well. Such a difference since she started at 12 weeks, can't believe she will be one at the end of Feb :-) Look forward to Toddler 1 classes this week, thanks for your help swapping pools earlier.
