Leisure centres in London with baby pools/teaching pools.

I have been having an absolute nightmare with this! I'm struggling to find any leisure centres that have a baby pool/teaching pool in South West London. Can anybody recommend me a good clean leisure centre with a baby pool/teaching pool? I am willing to travel across London if it's really worth it. I'd rather travel further for a better leisure centre than just settle for one that's just average for convenience. Many thanks in advance smile

Westcroft in Carshalton (LB Sutton) has just been re-done and has a lovely warm teaching pool.
New leisure centre in Waddon (LB Croydon) also has teaching pool.

Not SW but Swiss Cottage leisure centre is amazing and has a training pool. It's right next to the tube stop.

Queen Mother in Victoria? Lots of school groups so small pool often busy but it's fairly clean and changing rooms not bad.

NOT Brixton Rec (my local) as the changing rooms are bloody freezing!

Putney Leisure center on Dryburgh Road.
They have a baby pool, a teaching pool, a regular pool, a cafe and a creche.
It is great.

the Peckham Pulse has a hydrotherapy pool which hosts daily parent and baby/toddler sessions. Warm as toast and you're never out of your depth, lots of toys, floats etc. If you're on the Overground it's about a 5 minute walk from the station.

it's got a car park as well

Latchmere Leisure Centre in Battersea did, but I haven't been since about 1990. I think Elephant and Castle maybe too?

The Latchmere one is really small (compared to Putney). It has one baby pool and a very shallow pool with a wave machine, so fun for children.

Clapham leisure centre was reopened after a refurb last year. It's usually very quiet mid-week.
