Swimming lessons

We are home to a number of quality swimming lesson providers, which means we are able to offer swimming lessons for all ages and abilities.

Starfish School of Swimming

Lessons provided: Babies, Pre-School, School Age, Aqua Natal, Disability Specialists

Starfish teach babies, toddlers, and children and specialize in teaching disabled children. We specialise in water confidence, learning through play and stroke efficiency. We have small classes and until the children are competent swimmers all teachers are in the water with the children enabling them to trust the teacher and gain confidence. Starfish operates for 46 weeks of the year as we believe that children learn through routine and consistency therefore we do not close on every school holiday.

"We offer lessons at Oulder Hill Leisure Complex due to the fantastic cleanliness of the pool and changing rooms and state of the art facilities. There is plenty of free parking too!"

Don't leave your child's swimming tuition to chance; use a professional organisation with a proven track record. At Starfish you will be amazed at the rate of your child's progression.
