We are both mothers of 2 children all under 5yrs old, so we share your love of spending valuable time with your children in a fun, educational and rewarding environment. 

Turtle Tots are incredibly proud to run our swim school in a baby-led approach and all our teachers training is based on the very latest research on infant brain development.  Our ethos is gentle, non-pressured and we take everything completely at your babies own pace.  You'll find our classes a place to relax and enjoy time with your little one, lessons are highly sensory and an amazing experience to have together! 

We offer baby and toddler swimming classes in pools in Gloucester, Cheltenham & Stroud.
