* 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.
NEW MUMMIES & DADDIES
Our Level 1 classes are suitable from birth up to a year old. You are physically in the water for 30 minutes but you will need to book out a good 1 hour of your time for changing before and after class. Please note that little one may be hungry and tired after class so you may want to try and squeeze some food into them before their after swim nap. A good time to swim is just after a nap and a little feed and don't worry about feeding too much as they won't be doing lengths at this stage.
If you are missing a class for one or two of the weeks, if we know in advance we will always try and make thse classes up for you where possible. Just let us know in the "add notes" part when you checkout.
These courses include our free professional underwater photography and/or filming with nothing extra to pay for your digital files. Most other swim schools charge £150+ for this alone!
If you can fill a class of 7 please do look at our deals section as we do offer great group discounts for your first term with us.
If you are one of the many hundreds of people looking for Brighton and keep missing out when a space does pop up online please do consider our pool in LEWES. We have over 100 mummies travel from Brighton/Hove/Portslade/Shoreham and even Worthing each week to this great pool as it not only has free parking, is quicker to get to than driving into Brighton town centre but also has an onsite little coffee shop when you can feed before and after class with a nice latte and a slice of home made carrot cake. Its a little more expensive than our other classes but its definitely worth it with its 34 degree water and there is no need to rush off after class - you can just enjoy your experience in all its glory :)
