Reception & Facilities
When you arrive at the pool and enter the building the changing facilities are just on the left after reception. Please ensure you sign in for health and safety reasons at reception. There is one changing area with lockers, shower, a toilet and one baby change facility. As we will have multiple babies who need to get changed at the same time the safest place to change your baby is on the floor and we recommend you bring your travel changing mat with you. There will be a travel cot in the changing rooms where babies can play safely once dressed whilst parents get changed.
Please arrive 10/15 minutes before the start of your class, to enable you to get ready and to familiarise you and your little one to the environment. On your first day any swimwear orders will be ready and waiting for you to collect poolside. If you require any disposable swim nappies these are available from reception.
There are two pools; the main swimming pool and also the children’s pool. The venue has a strictly no waiting poolside policy for our safety therefore we suggest that you and your baby wait in the children’s pool for your class to begin. Both pools run at approximately at 30 degrees, the larger pool with a depth of 4ft/1m 22cm and the smaller pool with a much shallower depth of 1.4ft/40cm.
It is a fantastic facility for teaching both babies and toddlers swimming and we are extremely grateful to the White Horse Hotel for allowing us to have exclusive use of the pool during our class times.
We welcome family and friends to come and watch too, however please be sure ask them to remain in the reception area where they will be able to relax and watch through the glass. Please can you ensure your little ones do not run around the poolside area. We also operate a no shoes on poolside policy. Thank you.
