Loving swimming lessons at Lily Meadows

Swimming Pool Loxwood, West SussexIt’s so lovely to hear great feedback from parents about their children’s progress with Water Nippers swimming lessons. We received such a wonderful email from Hayley in West Sussex that we thought we’d share it with you:ir-leasing.ru

“I just wanted to give you all some feedback regarding one of your swimming teachers, Debbie, who teaches my son at Lily Meadows. Debbie has been utterly fantastic and I thought you would appreciate hearing about her.


When my son first joined Water Nippers he hated the idea of getting into the water. To be honest, I think it took three weeks before he would even enter the pool. Debbie was extremely patient and I’m thrilled to say that now, less than three months on, Tom is an entirely different child; it’s now a challenge getting him out of the water! He loves it and is very, very close to actually swimming by himself without a float aid.


We really appreciate all of Debbie’s excellent ideas in the water to get Tom’s confidence as well as swimming ability up to where it is now and can’t thank her enough. She really is an excellent teacher.


Thank you also to you all at Water Nippers as I’ve often found myself ringing up to rearrange swim lessons. Having such flexibility is fantastic – what with school activities and outings. Nothing is ever simple!


We would highly recommend Water Nippers to anyone with young or older children. Our two love it. The length of the lessons is perfect and the venue lovely – especially the warm water, that’s a real bonus as even I find the public pools far too cold for me, let alone young children!”

5 Tips for kids swimming lessons in winter


Swimming lessons are the perfect activity for rainy winter days when you can’t go out in the garden or park. Kids get to expend their boundless energy, get a good work out and learn about water safety too!

However as the days get shorter, colder and wetter it can be hard to keep up the motivation. Here are our five top tips:




  1. Bring a hat or hooded top for after the swimming lesson to keep them warm.
  2. Get a hooded towel or poncho style towel – this makes getting changed so much easier and helps keep little ones warm while you get changed too.
  3. Bring a small changing mat to stand on – you can buy swimming changing mats for kids so their feet don’t get cold and wet when you’re getting changed. It makes getting shoes and socks/tights a bit easier too!
  4. Bring plenty of healthy snacks for after swimming.
  5. Drink up! Even though it’s colder, it’s still important for children to have a good drink of water after a swimming lesson. They have been working hard!
