Description

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!

Other Info

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.

Baby Squids team

Meet Laura

I’m Laura and I founded Baby Squids (previously known as Baby Paddlers) in 2012. I was frustrated trying to find good quality swim classes for my own young children and attended several swimming classes, but felt they lacked flexibility, friendliness and fun. So I decided to start my own swimming teaching business!

My personal experiences and values have shaped the Baby Squids approach to teaching children to swim. I believe that your child should be at the heart of everything we do. At Baby Squids we want to help children to build a lifelong love of swimming. We teach your child to be water confident through games and engaging activities, always striving to make it fun for both parents and children.

Our swimming classes are designed to provide a great opportunity for you to bond with your child and are open to children right the way through from birth to 4 years of age.

Baby Squids have a love and passion for the water and want to share that. Our teachers are passionate about developing your child’s skills and confidence, and we welcome your input and feedback as we travel on the Baby Squids journey together. It goes without saying that all our staff are fully qualified swim teachers, but it is also important that they have empathy, provide you with a warm welcome at every class and support you and your child to get the most out of your Baby Squids experience.
