After a long 7 months off we are so excited to be able to welcome back swimmers of all ages. We have made some changes to ensure everyone’s safety including reduced class numbers, enhanced cleaning measures & one way systems. Find out more in our return to swimming video.
At McLaren Leisure we teach children of all ages and abilities about water safety as well as developing their swimming skills through fun and engaging lessons by following the STA’s International Learn to Swim Programme. Developed by the Swimming Teachers Association, the programme provides a complete progressive pathway that takes learners from their first time in the pool all the way to club level swimming.
Baby & Toddler Swimming
Our baby and toddler swimming programme is great fun for little ones and their grownups. Have fun while
bonding with baby, building on water confidence and independence and learning skills for life through exciting games and activities.
Babies (3 – 18 months)
Toddlers (18 months – 3 years)
Following the STA’s international learn to swim programme we teach children core swimming skills through having fun, playing games and other activities in the pool that will help them learn swimming skills such as breathing, submerging and moving in the water. Swimming strokes are introduced once your child has confidence in basic core water skills and techniques.
Preschool Swimming (3-5years)

Helping them to learn essential life saving skills and core swimming skills and strokes. Children will progress through the programme working their way up from beginner swimming through to Club.
