🤩 The school holidays have started!!! 🤩

🥲 On Thursday I said goodbye to this amazing group!!

We are missing a few superstars off this picture who sadly couldn't make this last term.

Some of these children have been with me from the very beginning and I am so so sad to be saying goodbye as they go onto their new adventures at school!
but I am so lucky to have taught this amazing bunch!

I will miss all of the grown ups too I remember when I first started and I was so worried you wouldn't like me 😂

You have gone from the class with the most wobbles to the most confident, funny, happy swimmers and I will miss seeing you all every week!

I hope you all loved your time at Dinkies as much as I loved Teaching you!

Have fun and keep Splashing!!!


Swimming is such hard work with a baby!

We Totally get it!!

Swimming involves a little bit more admin than other classes we attend with our little ones doesn’t it? 🫣

But have you ever wondered why you hear of little ones enjoying our same swimming class all the way from 3 months up to 5 years old and beyond with 1:1 lessons 👧🏽

We get to know you and little one!
We’re not at the front delivering the class, we’re in there with you - splashing about getting our hairs wet too! 💦

We’re a safe space for a chat, a rant, a celebration, a cry! We see those gorgeous smiles, the funny frowns, sometimes the cry’s and we hear lots of giggles 🤭

We at Dinkies aim to make your lessons enjoyable not just for your little one but for you also.
It’s a total cut out from the real, crazy world and we absolutely love being in there with you!

Come join our Dinkies family,

we offer so much more than just a swimming lesson 🥰

🩵 Why do I need to be in the pool with my child?

I know! I know! We are all waiting for the moment our child is old enough to get into the pool without us!
But im here to tell you how important it is to swim with your child!

💧Teaching and showing your children healthy habits that will last a life time!
💧Creates a new environment to bond, swimming encourages lots of skin to skin contact which is so beneficial from birth and beyond
💧New play opportunities of course in the pool but you can also practice swimming at home in the bath, splashing and blowing bubbles are our favourites at home
💧Builds trust- you are your child safe space and they will be much more confident with you there to help.

🤩 We know swimming with your little one isn't always easy but trust us its worth it!

🌟What a week for our lovely Dinkies🌟

🩵 We have worked super hard practicing being on our backs and floating.

🐢 We loved blowing bubbles especially this little one who couldn’t stop laughing at her mummy!!

🪼 we can’t wait to see what this week brings!!


🙋‍♀️ Who knows which song this is!? One of my faves!!! 🐠

Our big Dinkies on a Thursday LOVE to request rouge songs when we use the big mat!! the best request was definitely one little boy asking for a sea shanty!!!

what's your little ones favourite Dinkies song??

1 more sleep until we are splashing in the pool and singing all of our favourites!


So important to think about the colour of your little ones swimming wear.

You want your little ones to be seen at all times in the water!!

Think bright colours!! I know they aren’t the most aesthetically appealing but they are the safest!!


☀ How amazing is it to finally have some sunshine!! ☀

This term is absolutely flying by! How are we nearly in July!
