Water Babies How to choose a baby swim school? With summer approaching, it’s a great time to think about going swimming and it’s never too early to start with your baby. Here are some key things to consider when looking for lessons:Water Temperature: Babies and young toddlers should not swim in pools less than 30 degrees C and young babies under 12 weeks should not be in a pool under 32 degrees C, even with a wetsuit on. All of our local Water Babies pools are carefully chosen to be above these levels.

Training: Make sure your teacher has specialist baby swim teaching qualifications. Water Babies teachers take 6 months to train to the UK’s highest standards and

their love of their job shines through in the lessons. Structure: Some classes will simply get your child used to the pool with some songs and rhymes while others are more structured and progressive lessons. In Water Babies classes you will always learn something new each week that also develops your baby in lots of different ways. Fun: Baby swimming is a relaxing and enjoyable activity, perfectly designed to enhance the bond with your little one. In our classes, the emphasis is on following your child’s own pace. We also want you both to have fun too!

Welcome to Titchy Town – an interactive role play centre based in South Derbyshire. Titchy Town is an indoor play village designed especially for little ones up to 8 years of age. Children can freely explore six different play zones Titchy Town is designed to allow your child’s imagination to run wild whilst they role play in a safe environment. You can participate in your child’s play, or just sit back and watch them learn as you enjoy a mug of freshly brewed tea or coffee and an amazing homemade cake from our little coffee shop.

Where are we?

How it works

We are based on the site of Scallywags Private Day Nursery in Chellaston (Rowallan Way, DE73 5WX). Please use the Scallywags car park and you will find the entrance to Titchy Town off Rowallan Way by following the signs. Disabled and pushchair access is available.

Titchy Town works on a roll up, pay and play basis with sessions lasting 90 minutes. On your first entry you will be issued a loyalty card and for every nine sessions you attend you will receive your 10th entry free of charge! Payment is cash only until we establish if a card machine is required.
