Tiny Swim Starz

Swimming Lessons for Toddlers

We run baby and toddler swimming lessons in all of our family clubs.

Introducing little ones to water makes it a natural part of their world so they feel familiar, safe and happy. Tiny Swim Starz is our swimming lessons programme for babies and tots from three months to two years old and marks the very beginning of their swim journey. Evidence suggests the earlier kids splash around, the more confident they become. And swimming is a wonderful way to stay healthy throughout life.

Half hour sessions take place in small groups in shallow warm water with the parent or care giver holding and supporting the baby throughout the class. There’s lots of encouragement, sing-songs and toys to create a lovely, fun atmosphere. Babies and tots progress through six stages and we have a mini awards ceremony for each level of the Swimming Teachers’ Association (STA) Starfish scheme.

Your little one is in safe hands at Virgin Active – we’re the UK’s largest private swim school, teaching over 20,000 children each week. And all Tiny Swim Starz instructors are Swimming Teachers’ Association (STA) or Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Level 2 qualified.

Get in the swim, share precious moments of discovery and make some memories.
