Everyone is welcome at Baby Squids! You can start swimming anytime; at any age up to 4 years old, and at any point in the term. Our main aim is to make our baby and pre-school swimming lessons an inclusive, enchanting experience that gives your child vital life skills whilst they are having lots of fun!
Our swimming classes specialise in the 0 – 4 year old range, starting with parent and baby swimming lessons, and focusing on building water confidence and safety skills. Our toddler swimming lessons help you work with your child towards independent swimming. Most importantly, we have fun while we are doing it!
Oaklands Community Pool is a purpose built charity-run swimming pool. The pool is heated to 30.5/31 degrees which makes for a lovely temperature for our young swimmers. Lessons are held in the learner pool which has stepped entry. In 2019 the changing rooms have been completely redesigned as a changing village refitted with plenty of large family cubicles and brand new showers. Viewing for grandparents and other spectators takes place in two purpose built rooms with large television screens.
The pool car park has ample free parking and is easily accessible in a couple of minutes from junction 3 of the M27. This is a truly fabulous swimming pool facility! It is close to Lordshill Centre bus stops with regular bus links from Southampton town centre, Shirley, Romsey and further afield. The Lordshill area has a large Sainsburys with a café. Next door to Sainsburys is a pharmacy, post office and library all within a couple of minutes walk.
