Why Little Splashers? caring and professional Little Splashers is everything you could imagine from a swim school plus a whole load more! We look forward to our weekly lesson and my son gets so excited when he sees the swimming bag come out. The teachers are kind, caring and very professional - my son loves them so much that he kisses & cuddles them at the end of each lesson. Thanks to the team who have helped us discover that we have a true ‘Little Splasher’ on our hands.

great fun

“My little one and I have thoroughly enjoyed the swimming classes. We started when my daughter was only 10 weeks old and every class has been great. Jo and her team inspires confidence and puts mums, dads and babies at ease while also sharing a wealth of technical knowledge. Most of all it is great fun!”

We’ve never looked back... I like to think of myself as a natural swimmer having swum myself since I was a baby and competed as a youngster. I was determined that my son should also have a love for water like my own. I was terrified though on how to teach him and keep him safe! I first took him to Little Splashers when he was 12 weeks old. He is now 2 years old and since that first lesson we have not looked back. He loves the water and the skills of the teachers at Little Splashers has provided my husband and I with the confidence to help him develop this love further at home. The joy I felt as he swam unaided to me at his last lesson was immense. I cannot recommend Little Splashers enough.

Highly recommended My 2 year old daughter, Rosa, has been swimming with Little Splashers for nearly two years and I have been really pleased with her progress. She has had a few wobbles when she has at times got a little nervous, but Little Splashers were fantastic, being extremely supportive and encouraging and not pushing her in any way. This has helped Rosa to start really enjoying her swimming again. I would definitely recommend Little Splashers!
