Baby, Toddler & Children's Swimming Lessons in Sheffield & Chesterfield

Many babies and toddlers love the fun and freedom of swimming, and playing in warm water with you as support is a great bonding experience. Blue Water offers lessons for babies and toddlers designed to be fun and rewarding in an enjoyable controlled environment. We are also now offering children's swimming lessons.

Enjoy the fun and freedom of swimming with your baby and toddler
We work in small groups, with maximum of 10 children per class. The babies and toddlers do not wear floatation aides (armbands or body floats), and therefore a parent or carer is in the pool with the child. The depth of the pool is suitable for the adult to stand comfortably whilst holding the child.

Benefits of Swimming
• Builds water confidence
• Can help strengthen heart, lungs
  and respiratory system
• Can help improve sleeping and eating patterns
• Can enhance awareness

Photo Shoots

We run underwater Photo Shoots throughout the year. There are no more than 5 little ones in each 30 minute session which gives us plenty of time to get lots of shots of your little one, their siblings and the whole family. See the News page for dates and the photo shoot page to see photos.
