Teach your baby the enjoyment of water!

Early swimming can benefit your baby by helping to develop water confidence, strength, co-ordination & alertness whilst also learning water safety and having fun!


Through fun and games we progressively develop your babies natural reflexes to encourage voluntary swimming movements in the water which will build a foundation for your baby to swim unaided in the future.


See your child progress to a confident swimmer using our Progressive STA Starfish and Stanley structured awards programme for babies and children combining a flexible mix of lessons, activities and incentives.

Swimmers Academy

We also teach from beginners progressing through to Gold and Survival Awards from 4 years to Teens whatever their ability, concentrating on stroke technique and stamina, progressing.

Baby Swimmers is a family-run award-winning baby & toddler swim school
that teaches babies from 6 weeks across North & West Yorkshire.
We also teach older children (and even adults!) through our Swimmers Academy, whatever their ability.
Baby swimming has so many benefits! As well as teaching your baby how to be safe in water, it’s also good for their physical, mental and emotional development.
It’s also a great way to spend quality, focused time having lots of fun together; while the skin-to-skin contact is fantastic for nurturing the bond between the two of you. What could be better?


We take babies from 6 weeks old, so you can start swimming with Baby Swimmers as soon as you and your baby are ready and happy to do so (and because of all the benefits to be gained, the earlier, the better).
Baby Swimmers uses the STA Swim Star Swim School Programme, so you can rest assured that we work to the highest industry standards.
Our structured lessons follow the STA’s International Learn to Swim programme, and your little one will soon gain confidence in the water as we build a foundation to help them learn to swim independently. They’ll also learn vital water safety skills.
We also run classes for older children and teenagers through our Swimmers Academy; and although most of the children who swim with us have progressed through our Baby & Pre-School programme, others have joined at a later stage.
Classes run across North & West Yorkshire. Find your nearest class and come swimming, be safe and have fun!


We run regular photo shoots where you can get some beautiful images of your child underwater, as well as family shots. The perfect keepsake of a very special time in their lives!
Baby Swimmers uses the official water safety programme for babies, toddlers and older children through the STA.
