At Melbourn Sports Centre we understand the importance of building your child's confidence in the water and teaching them to swim independently. Not only is swimming a healthy sport, it is a starting block to other water activities and is an essential means of survival in the water.
Our pre school swimming lessons are aimed at children aged from 3 through to full time school age. Each lesson runs for 30 minutes over a period of 10 to 14 weeks.
In all of our pre school swimming lessons the child goes into the pool with a teacher while the parent / carer watches from our viewing area.
Courses are paid for on a termly basis.
£4.00 per lesson
Water Play 1
Tuesday and Thursday 13.30 - 15.00
Friday 10.30 - 12.00
This is the recommended starter for children who have had little or no lesson experience. The aim is to introduce children to water and the pool environment through fun, games and confidence exercises.
Water Play 2
With water confidence already gained, this lesson builds on from Water Play 1 with the main aim being to get children swimming without armbands.
Water Play 3
Without the use of armbands children will be able to develop their swimming strokes with the use of various floats.
PLEASE NOTE : it is advised to start children in Water Play 1 unless they are regular swimmers and have lots of water confidence.
