Our lessons are held at Stonehill Pool, Rock Side Road, Thurlstone, near Penistone. It is a private residence where Lilypad Baby have sole use of the pool. The water temperature is kept at a steady 31degrees. There is poolside changing areas behind a screen and limited forecourt parking, but plenty of roadside parking on a quiet road.
Because our classes only have 4 swimmers per class this allows for more bespoke, individual teaching.
Babies can swim from as young as 4 weeks old and we teach right up to school age children. So even if you have a toddler who is not confident in the water, we can help!
We don't use armbands in our lessons, we like to teach children how to swim without them. Babies will learn how to be fully submerged under water, use their arms, kick their legs and blow bubbles. Our classes focus on water safety, water confidence and of course learning how to swim!
We follow the STA International Learn to Swim programme and follow the Starfish series. This allows you to see the progress that your child makes and keep track of how far they have come. Follow this link to see more about the Starfish series:
