WELCOME TO YOUR AQUATOTS SWIMMING LESSONS

Providing a Fun, Safe, and Relaxed Experience for all

As we jump into Spring 2022 we are delighted that all restrictions have eased and we are able to return to focusing on the very best Aquatots experience without any limitations. Of course we have learnt a lot over the past 2 years and some of the changes we made did in fact improve lesson experiences so will therefore carry on in the future. So here is a general overview on what to expect in your lessons in future and how to best prepare.

    

Working together to provide a safe & fun
experience for everyone long term.

Working together to provide a safe & fun experience for everyone long term
    

What to Bring to your Lesson

  • Your Pool Venue Instructions.
  • Swim Nappy for your little one. Two tight fitting layers as normal and as always we recommend the Aqua Wrap as the best option for both value and protecting the environment.
  • Swimwear on under your Clothing except for Nappy wearing Babies / Toddlers.
  • Towels for Parent and Child.
  • Warm Hat for Babies and Toddlers to wear when leaving the pool. After swimming it's important to make sure you dry your baby's ears as much as possible to remove any residual water but for added protection it's good to bring a hat for them to wear after swimming that covers their ears, even if it is just a short walk to the car.
  • Change Mat for our younger swimmers who need to be laid down for changing. For best hygiene, we will continue to recommend bringing along your own change mat. The roll-up versions are very easy to travel with and ideal for a wet environment, as they are waterproof /wipe off and also very soft and comfortable for baby. Alternatively, an extra towel will suffice.
  • Goggles / Swim Hat or Snorkel & Fins kit - if required for your lessons. Snorkel kit for child levels only
    

Your Time at the Pool

  • Please read your Pool Information Link supplied with your timetable each term.This will give you all the instructions you need for arriving at the pool. It could explain where parking may be available and where to enter the building for example. It will also include any pool specific rules that may be in place such as swim hats or limited spectators etc.
  • Please keep changing times to a minimum and arrive Swim Ready.To minimise time spent within changing areas, we ask that all swimmers come to the pool swim ready, with swimwear under their clothing. The only exception will be our baby swimmers still in nappies, as changing into swimming nappies needs to still happen in designated changing areas. We also ask that changing after the lesson takes place as quickly as possible and you are exiting the building within 15 minutes of your lesson finishing. A great option for children is a quick change into a baby grow or onesie for a swift change.
  • Please follow all instructions given by your Teacher. As well as being highly skilled swim teachers, they are the most knowledgeable people you will have at your venue on how best to stay safe whilst with us.
  • Spectators or Additional Swim Partners.We require one parent in the water with children at all times and Aquatots love to welcome additional members of the family, from time to time, to see loved ones in action. However, this will vary from pool to pool depending on the size and the rules of the venue. Any visitors must be pre agreed with your Teacher, whether it be to spectate or join the lesson.
  • Missed Lessons.Following a detailed review of our booking processes and health and safety procedures, make up lessons will not be offered for the future. We do all we can to ensure swimmers catch up on return, if they have been unlucky enough to miss a lesson, but the additional movement of swimmers temporarily joining lessons was causing disruption to classes and at times resulting in swimmer numbers exceeding our health and safety requirements. To ensure every swimmer gets the very best experience and attention from their regular teacher, we shall keep swimmers within their nominated class only.

All of the above we hope provides you with the information you need to enjoy your next Aquatots Lesson and reassures you that we are, as always, dedicated to providing the very best experience for all. Although restrictions have been lifted we will continue to monitor and asses all health and safety aspects within our lessons and follow any updated industry or government guidelines should they change, to ensure we look after your most special loves ones.

Now all that's left to ask from you is that you have a GREAT TIME in your next lesson!!

See you in the pool soon!
