    Baby swimming lessons 14th Nov 16 at 6:32 PM

    I have a 4 month old baby and I would like her to start having swimming lessons. I am based just South of Manchester.

    I contacted Water Babies for information, but think their classes are extortionate at 150. I have also read some bad reviews of the company online.

    Does anyone know of any classes that are more reasonably priced? Or any companies you would like to recommend please?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am from Houston, My daughter is learning swimming skills from Pengu Swim School in $78/month which include other facilities also, quite cheap though.

    Julia I am sure op has found suitable lessons as her post was a couple of years ago. Also is the swim school you are promoting in America? This is a uk site.

    I took my son swimming at a private pool with a similar swim provider and it was 13 a lesson. In all honesty they dont teach them to swim they just want them to be confident in water and you get that by continuing to go with them. Sometimes they will love it and sometimes they won't. We found it too expensive to keep up but found that our council pools/leisure centre offer lessons for 4.50 a week which is pretty much what it would cost for entry for both of us to the pool so we do this now. The lessons are very similar in every way but price. There are actually fewer people in the council pool class! If you look up the French way of doing things they just get them familiar in the pool until they are about two as they won't learn to swim before this so you could just go to a mother and toddler session weekly. I just find the structured lesson means we go each week
