It’s never too late, or too early, to learn to swim and enjoy the water with your little one. Turtle Tots York have swimming classes from bump to playground and beyond and currently deliver sessions every day of the week in York.  Free trials are available.

Turtle Tots' baby swimming lessons and toddler swimming lessons teach you to swim with your young child, whilst giving you a fantastic toning workout at the same time!

The Turtle Tots programme of swimming lessons begins with aqua-natal yoga for mums-to-be, and continues once your baby is born with specialist and progressive swimming classes for babies and toddlers. The classes have also been written in conjunction with experienced personal trainers to promote fitness through pre-natal and post-natal pregnancy exercises. Every movement can be adapted to suit individual ability levels and the classes provide an excellent toning work out for mums and mums-to-be. All swimming classes for babies and toddlers are open to dads as well, who also love to come along!
