The Little Fishes and Ducklings and Sharks classes take place in the quiet surroundings of the Truro Prep School.  The pool itself is purpose built for teaching younger children water confidence and ability; its warm water is ideal for babies, toddlers and children as it is kept at between 30-34 degrees.

Little Fishes classes have an age range of 4 months to 3 years with two age groups (4-12 months & 1-3 years) to develop social interaction between both children and parents.  In these classes, Mum or Dad is required to be in the water with the child throughout and will play an integral part of the learning and confidence building process through the guidance of our swimming teachers who are in the water throughout.

The Ducklings classes are smaller groups of children between 3-4 years of age build on their own confidence, water skills, and entering the water alone (albeit with one of our qualified and experienced teachers) while Mum or Dad watch from the side!

Little Sharks have an age range of 4-6 to develop safe entries into the water and to continue to learn how to float and travel in the water using aids. The classes are small groups of children, who have learnt basic skills and water confidence. The aim of little sharks is to teach children to eventually swim unaided with a basic knowledge of technique.

All classes involve learning through play so the children enjoy the lessons but are also mentally stimulated.
