Horizon Leisure Centre’s baby and toddler swimming lessons are available from when babies are 3 months old after they have had their second set of injections (if you have any doubts, consult your midwife or doctor first).

The parent and baby/toddler swimming lessons provide a great introduction to water confidence, with games, singing and toys in the pool. Swimming lessons are also a great way for new mums and dads to have fun with their babies and meet other parents.

The baby and toddler swimming lessons are for 30 minutes and are taught in the splash pools at both Havant and Waterlooville by fully qualified instructors.

There is a range of swimming levels from Baby Introduction through to Toddler Splash 3. Parents and babies/toddlers can work their way through the swimming levels or join at any stage.

All the baby and toddler swimming lessons require the parents to be in the swimming pool with their baby/toddler.
