The Answers You Need

Does my baby need its first set of immunisations before lessons?

No babies can swim from  birth. At our hydro pools babies are very comfortable in the lovely warm water of 34C. In other pools it can be recommended babies wait until 10 weeks old and always wear a babywarma.
Mum's are recommended to have their 6/8 week post check up. Any concerns please do speak to your GP or midwife; check out the NHS link below.

Do I need to be able to swim?

No, parents do not have to be able to swim as adults will generally stay at chest height or their own comfortable depth.

The pool is 1.3 m deep at Harry’s Hydro - Sloping from 0.9m

The pool is 1.2 m deep at Rainbow Lagoon

Do I have to get in the pool?

Yes, our lessons are parent & child for many great reasons.

The 30 minute lessons are special bonding time between you and your child. It gives you 30 minutes together that cannot be interrupted by general life like your phone or the dreaded cleaning!  We are so lucky to have hydro pools that there's never the 'AGRH cold pool' moment!

Do I have to purchase a particular brand of swimming wear?

No, you can use any brand you wish as long as the double layer nappy system is followed. (reusable or disposable swim nappy & neoprene swim nappy cover)

We only recommend our particular retailers as we have tried, tested & fallen in love with them. We stock and sell a small selection that can be purchsed directly from us, this takes away delivery costs and the worry if its the wrong size as we can easily change sizes poolside ready for your lesson! However if you still wish to purchase through our retailer you will get a special discount at checkout when using our link. 


We also run a rental scheme as little ones quickly grow out of the nappy covers. Contact us for more information on this.

Can I bring someone to watch?

Of course! Depending on the pool may equal if there is seats or just standing room. Please ask us for more information or check out your pool details paperwork sent to you upon booking.
