Starting your little ones swimming journey can be a daunting process. With this in mind, here at Aqua Splash Tots, we take a very gentle approach. Our entry level class is suitable for babies from 6 weeks old. We focus on slow movements, skin to skin bonding time, swimming together and the start of gentle submersions.

At Aqua Splash Tots we have a very mindful approach to submersions. Babies are introduced to these by parents’ actions first, we work from your little one’s subtle cues and not harsh verbal cues. By teaching this way, our little ones go under through choice, not command. We have lots of fun exploring both above and below the water.

It’s never too late to start, so why wait? Start your AST Swim journey today.

Group swimming

Our classes are a great way of making new friends, you and your little one will be in groups with other children of similar ages. Our programmes are written, taking in your little one’s developmental milestones, building on their reflexes, movements and interests. Swimming can include the whole extended family, we have grandparents, aunties, uncles, cousins, who love to bring their precious little ones swimming.

Customer reviews

We love Aqua Splash Tots! Our little boy has been swimming since 6 months and is now nearly 3 years! It’s been so nice to be able to enjoy the swimming experience in the pool with him, and because the classes are small you really get that personal touch! Debbie is great in the water and explains and demonstrates everything making us, the parents feel so much more confident!
My daughter loves her swim classes, she has a huge smile on her face the whole time and as a very shy child who hasn’t always adapted well to clubs
she looks forward to her swim lesson each week – would definitely recommend.

Highly recommend Aqua Splash Tots, they are so lovely. Been taking my daughter since 10 months. She absolutely loves swimming! I love it just as much as her. We both look forward to it every week. Thank you to all!



Great swimming group with lovely friendly instructors. They give the kids all the confidence in the water, whilst making it fun for both the adults and kids!



Such wonderful sessions we look forward to every week. Engaging and very child led approach to the water, giving them (and us as parents) confidence with them when swimming, and I learn something new every time I go too! Our little girl is 2 and has learnt a lot already, highly recommended.
