Our Swim Staff
Our teachers are qualified and receive regular ongoing training to enable us to support every child as they learn the life skill of swimming. We use the Scottish Swimming National Framework across all 12 facilities in the City.
Early Years (6 months - 3 years)
The Early Years programme is designed to allow adults to become more confident in the water with their baby/toddler. This class encourages water confidence and basic core aquatic skills through play and song.
