Fordfield Nursery Swimming School

Fordfield Nursery offers a range of swimming opportunities for your child to develop their confidence. We have an indoor heated swimming pool and fully qualified swim teachers who use the ASA Award Schemes. Every pool session is attended by a lifeguard. The swimming lessons are open to the public.

Structured baby sessions are available during the week for developing your babies confidence in the water. The sessions are led by a qualified swimming teacher. If you would like more information please contact Linda either by email or call 01525 405524.

Preschool Swimming Lessons

These sessions are designed for children from 2 1/2 up to school age and the children are accompanied by a swim teacher in the water. These classes are designed to work through the ASA Duckling Award Scheme. These run at various times and days during the week. If you would like more information please contact Linda either by email or call 01525 405524.

After School Lessons

Once your child is school age they can join the after school swimming lessons that run every week day. All of the children work towards ASA Learn to Swim Awards. The ASA Learn to Swim Awards 1-6 are divided into progressive stages. They make up the core, national syllabus of learning to swim for primary school aged children. They are designed to reward your child for their development of the essential aquatic skills they need to be confident, competent and safe in the water.

ASA Award Scheme Information

Your child will start with the ASA Duckling scheme working towards four different colourful awards. Each award has its own certificate, badge and sticker. Duckling 1 will see children start to move by themselves in the water and by Duckling 4 they will be jumping in, going underwater, floating and swimming five meters without support. They will then progress to the ASA Learn to Swim Award, developing both their water confidence and swimming technique.
