At McLaren Leisure we are committed to providing quality swimming lessons that are designed to teach children in a fun and engaging environment. Learning to swim through games and activities and having fun in the pool to learn and improve core swimming skills such as breathing, submerging and moving in the water before stroke technique is introduced.  Our Learn to swim programme follows the new Scottish Swimming’s National Framework for swimming in Scotland, which provides a clear set of national standards and a pathway which allows you to follow how your child is progressing and their ability to swim.

The Learn to Swim programme has 7 stages (Early Years, Preschool. Swim Skill 1,2,3,4 and club ready) that offers a progressive pathway, taking learners from their first time in the pool all the way to club level swimming.
