About Us

Some great reasons to choose us to share this special time with your child…

Baby swimming can be a wonderful shared experience for all the family. From the first splashes in the bath to confidently diving under, babies delight in the freedom and fun that water provides. Warm water promotes relaxation and little babies enjoy floating peacefully on their backs often gazing up into their parent’s eyes. The more playful older babies and toddlers are jumping and splashing and joining in with many songs and activities. Babies develop water confidence and specific skills to move towards independent swimming, through our carefully developed Swim Programme. The Dolphin swim school has classes in several locations in and around Cambridge.

Our wonderful class teachers work with the individual needs of every child.

We teach the Birthlight gentle approach where parent and baby can truly experience the joy of moving in the water together. This unique method has proved so successful that Sally Lomas director of the swim school, have been involved in training new teachers internationally and the founder of Birthlight, Francoise Freedman received the Virginia Hunt award at the World Aquatics Congress.

The continuity of nurture and support provided by our classes has helped many families through the joys and challenges of these early years. Spirals of joy are created and expressions of love and caring will touch an ever-widening circle of family and friends.

Having worked with families for many years we understand it is not always possible to make it to class.  We aim to be flexible and maximise your time in the water, Although It is strongly recommended that you attend regularly to support your child’s progress, we do understand when you may need to miss the occasional class. We are happy to offer a make-up classes though this is subject to there being a space available in a suitable class within the appropriate age group.
