Children's Swimming

Children's Swimming Lessons

Since 1973 children and adults have learned to swim at Newpark Swimming Pool. We offer top standards of teaching. All Swimming teachers at the Centre are fully qualified and are dedicated to passing on swimming skills to their classes that will encourage a lifetime love of the water. There are limited numbers in our classes. Children must be 4 years of age to start lessons. Click here for more details on class times
 

Little Swimmers
This is our babies to toddlers learn to swim programme which runs in 8 week courses. This is suitable for babies from 12 weeks old up to toddlers of 4 years old. The classes currently take place on a Wednesday morning and afternoon and the classes are run in groups keeping children of similar ages together. Parents get into the water with their child and there are instructors in the water that run the programme.

Special needs Swim Academy

Newpark Special Needs Swim Academy runs throughout the school term. Classes offer 1:1 or small groups so they can cater to the individual needs of the swimmer. We currently have 3 groups on a Friday afternoon and a lengths class on Saturday evening. Children are taught a range of skills include confidence in the water, water safety, breath control and stroke technique. For more information please click here

Times: Classes are 45mins in length. They run at 9am and we also offer 6pm classes for the summer.

The advantage of this course is daily attendance and consistent teaching enables children to make good progress.  Instruction is of the highest standard, using our own experienced and highly qualified teachers.  The pupil / teacher ratio is kept low to ensure each child gets individual attention.
