Hi, We have recently moved to Teddington. I want to find swimming lessons locally, for a 4 year old and a 7 year old. Any suggestions and recommendations please? We have a car and I am happy to travel a bit.
Patterson’s Penguins hold swimming lessons at the private pool at the Mall School in Teddington.
They are brilliant. My DS was very nervous in water but they were so patient with him and had him putting his face in the water independently by week 2.
He learnt to swim properly through their progressive lessons and is now a confident swimmer.
They do a range of lessons, small groups, 1:1, 1:2 ratios. They were very good at progressing him through the different stages without pressure.
Well, if you can get onto the list, Teddington pool does swimming lessons. If you're on a budget, go to Sunbury Leisure Centre. Lots of cheap group lessons.
