At Baby Swimmers we follow the Starfish Awards, so little ones can gain water confidence and build a foundation to swim unaided in the future. We play games and sing songs which are skill related and also teach water safety skills so they can learn to swim back to the side, hold on and climb out when they are strong enough.
Our structured classes work towards this and are also fantastic for bonding with your little one, as well as enjoying yourselves in a fun relaxed atmosphere, which we always ensure is at your little one’s own pace including underwater swims. Babies use their natural reflexes when they are in water, so it is always a good idea to start as soon as you can, as swimming is a great workout and helps to strengthen their muscles and also increases alertness.
For toddlers we follow the STA Stanley Awards, so again little ones can gain water confidence and build a foundation to swim unaided. For this age group we still sing songs and have fun with games and also start to teach the basic strokes, continuing with water safety skills and teaching your toddler to hold on, turn, then push off the side to swim to you independently. Classes will focus on floating, learning to tread water, rolling, push and glides, diving for sinkers and more.
Swimmers Academy (4 years plus) is for our older swimmers where we focus on stroke technique and stamina, classes run for any age from Beginners and go through to Gold also incorporating Lifesaving Awards.
All teachers are fully qualified with specialist training for your little ones. Our classes are child led to ensure each child is taught and developed at their own pace.

Swimming with Linzi is all about having fun in a safe environment, from gaining water confidence to great stroke technique.
I run classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for children 2 -10 years at Robert Wilkinson School, Strensall, York, YO32 5UH from 3.30-6.30 pm.
I also offer baby, toddler and Pre-school lessons, 4 weeks – 4 years of age at Carr Junior School in Acomb, York on Monday, Thursday and Friday mornings. It is a small pool and warm at 31 degrees, perfect for little ones!
When children are confident enough, they can go in by themselves without their primary caregiver. This is a natural progression and one where there’s no age limit. The important thing here is, it’s when the child is ready.
Classes are fun based and relaxed with only 7 children in each class. With the whole pool to ourselves, children really enjoy their lessons and thrive learning to swim. I get to know all the children individually and adapt my teaching accordingly. There is only 1 class running at a time so little distraction from other swimmers.
With over 10 years teaching experience, including my own 3 children, I am fully qualified STA Swimming Instructor, STA baby and pre-school teacher, RLSS lifesaving and recently completed Level 3 Diploma in Aquatic Teaching for Baby and Pre-school. Do check out my recommendations on Facebook!
