 A healthy water environment

We are committed to providing excellent water quality. Water in all our pools is manually tested throughout the day and also monitored through technology.

Our pools are chlorinated as all healthy pools require a trace element of chlorine to kill nasty bugs and bacteria. But because we also use an ultraviolet light treatment system, we can keep chlorine to a minimum. The ultraviolet light system also removes chloroforms, which cause sore eyes/itchiness and odour.

Our filtration system combined with the use of chlorine and ultraviolet light is a winning combination in the war against lurgies and helps keep our swimmers and pools healthy.

Babies (3 to 36 Months)

Maximum of 10 babies and caregivers per class

Babies is our specialised Learn to Swim programme for toddlers and babies. Adults take part in the lesson with their babies. 

We have a child-centred swimming philosophy, so children progress from skill to skill at their own pace. We encourage you to swim at least once more each week with your little one to build up their confidence.

All our infant teachers are highly trained and skilled in teaching infant aquatics. The skills your child will develop include:

  • stronger legs through kicking
  • upper body strength and control
  • balance and rocking
  • rolling and spinning
  • hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills
  • language, understanding and imagination
  • self-esteem, confidence and belonging
