Children's Swimming Lessons

Learning to swim at London Aquatics Centre is a fantastic opportunity for children. We have various sessions for all levels and we use a number of fun swimming aids to encourage children in the pool and help develop their confidence in a positive way through our lessons. Ensuring your child safety is paramount, there are always certified lifeguards on hand poolside during lesson times to keep a watchful eye alongside our swimming instructors.


At Better, our adult and baby swimming sessions support infants and toddlers in building their water confidence at a pace that's natural to them. Our adult and baby programme takes infants from three months old to age four, preparing them for the next stage of their swimming journey and a lifetime of fun in the water. Swimbies offers three stages for your little one to work their way through:

  • Dippers: 3 -12 months
  • Splashers: 13-24 months
  • Paddlers: 2-3 years
