AquaStar Swim School: Welcome
Baby Swimming Lessons - Leicester, Loughborough and surrounding areas 

At AquaStar Swim School, we strive to provide safe, child-focussed baby and pre-school swimming lessons in Leicester and Leicestershire (See Venues) where water confidence and learning to swim are taught in a fun and supportive environment, to create a positive experience for yourself and your baby or toddler.

Relaxed and Gentle Introduction

It is a well-known fact that babies have a natural affinity with water, which starts when they are in the womb. A relaxed and gentle introduction to water outside the womb is essential to nurture this affinity and create a life-long love of water. Our baby and pre-school swimming lessons also aim to empower both parent and child in the water, building on the natural trust bond that already exists between them.

Based on the Birthlight method of Baby Swimming our structured and progressive lessons are led by fully trained, experienced and passionate instructors and are designed to provide a fun, relaxed learning environment where each child is valued and treated as an individual. We understand the need to work at each child's own pace and always allow flexibility and one-to-one time during our lessons.

Builds Confidence

Water confidence, safety skills and early swimming techniques are some of the things you can expect from our lessons as well as being a great place to relax and have fun with your child, whilst making new friends. For some parents and their babies, their swimming lesson is the highlight of their week!

We can start teaching babies from 8 weeks old and continue teaching them until they start school, they can join us any time during this period, whether they have previous swimming experience or not.
