* Mixed Ability Classes.

From time to time we do run some mixed ability classes i.e. Level 1-2 or 2-3. We ONLY ever work at babies pace so babies so babies can join a mixed class if subject to the above level competencies.

A mixed class only spans 1 level i.e. 2-3, 3-4 and never more than 2 levels i.e level 1-3, 2-4

 

A mixed level class is useful if you feel your baby is very comfortable in water and will progress quickly through our program. Confident babies tend to catch up very quickly so a mixed level class may be perfect.
