Turtle Tots Fylde
Baby, Toddler & Preschool classes
We offer fun, friendly, child-led baby and toddler swimming lessons at pools across the Fylde. We teach babies from 12 weeks (or 12lbs in weight) and you can join us any time up until they start school.
Our classes introduce your little one to the water and teach them water confidence and safety skills, as well as starting them off with basic swimming techniques. Our lessons are all child-led so they are never forced to do anything they don’t want to do and they can progress at a pace that is right for them. We will always try and find a class that is suitable for their developmental stage (so you don’t have to start at the beginning with your older baby or toddler). We use lots of games, toys and songs, so it is a lovely fun way to spend half an hour with your little person.
At Turtle Tots Fylde we take teaching swimming very seriously (although our classes are a LOT of fun). You can be assured that your teacher will have at least the following qualifications and checks:
STA (Swimming Teacher Association) Teaching Qualification(s)
STA Baby and Pre-school teaching qualification (specific for teaching babies and young children)
STA Safety award (resuscitation, rescue, first aid etc)
DBS criminal records check
STA Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults Course
STA membership and insurance
World class Turtle Tots training
Regular CPD courses in first aid and specific teaching topics
Nearly all of our team have also recently undertaken the STA Level 3 Diploma in Baby and Toddler swimming! So you know you are in the best possible hands in all of our classes:)
