I've taken my 18-month old to a few clubs. Mini Swimming is one we will stick at. The classes are pitched brilliantly for each age group. The instructors assess and track the children and even in young babies, the progression is clear to see. My daughter has been taught by Sam and Dani who are excellent instructors and always seem genuinely pleased to see her. I would recommend Mini Swimming to anyone but especially to those who want their babies to feel safe and confident in the water. More...

Well-run, good instruction and fun classes.
We’ve been doing swimming lessons here since my son was only a couple of months old and we absolutely love it. Our teacher is brilliant and the facilities are clean and modern. Can’t recommend enough!
Such a lovely environment for babies to learn to swim small classes lovely heated pool x
My boys have been swimming at Dunmow Pool since November an absolutely love there classes, Classes are a full 1/2 hour and boys are always in the pool rather than sitting on side doing one child at a time like our previous swim school.
Attentive and helpful teachers in this fab swim school. We are very lucky to have it so close by ♀️
Our son has been going since October. The lesson are great learning for us and for him. Steve is a great and engaging instructor. Highly recommend mini swimming
Helen Jean Aldridge
Such a lovely lesson each week. We really look forward to our Monday's and Friday's! My little girl of 5mths has grown in confidence which makes bath time so much fun and my 8yr old son loves his lessons too! Steve is fab and the structure of session is lovely. love the fact the pool is so convienient for changing with all facilities easily accessible and super clean. Happy swimming all! More...
So pleased I found the pool in Dunmow - it’s so lovely and warm, clean, and no horrid over chlorined water. Perfect for little ones! My daughter loves the fun lessons and her confidence in the water has grown massively over only a month! More...
Fantastic lessons with our baby from when she was 9 weeks old. Steve is an encouraging and fun teacher, with great knowledge of baby development
My daughter had her first lesson this morning and seem to really love it and I definitely did! Can’t wait for next Tuesday already :)
Becky Gilbey Green
Wow! We are so impressed with the classes. It’s clear to see how passionate and caring all the teachers are. And to top it off an amazing pool & facilities. Highly recommend!
Such a great swimming group! Really well run from Louise in the back office to Maxine who is the teacher and the gentleman who assists (I cant remember his name). Always such a varied class and I feel we cover a great deal in 30 minutes. I never thought that my son at 2 and a half would be swimming with only a noodle. I do feel that is down to the thought through lesson plans and encouragement from Maxine. I take both my children (my son is 2 and a half and my daughter is 17 months) and they have lessons straight after each other. Mini swimming provide a great online portal which tracks their progress - this means I can share with their dad exactly how they are progressing each week. I have previously taken my children to water babies groups and find that it is over priced and each term is simply working towards the even higher priced photo shoot. If you are looking for a swimming group that will teach your children to swim confidently, learning different techniques, whilst still having the time of their lives then this is the class for you. Worth every penny! Thank you Louise and Maxine you are both such lovely ladies. More...
Today was our last day swimming with Mini Swimming but we just wanted to say A very big thank you to everyone at Mini Swimming and mainly Victoria. We enjoyed every lessons we had. Keira has grown in confidence so much and loves her swimming and it has also helped me feeling confortable to take her swimming on my own. We will miss you. X More...
Just wanted to say what a great first session my daughter Alice had today I was very impressed with the setting and the instructors and she throughly enjoyed it - highly recommend
Donna M Crowley
My little girl joined Harlow club with Maxine a couple of weeks ago, it's amazing, it's taking me so long to find a swim club that she will settle in but after minutes she loved it, would highly recommend it here.
My little girl has been coming to classes since she was about 18 months old. She's now almost four and has just progressed from being very nervous to the stage of going into the pool without me. I can't recommend these classes enough. We've had several teachers and they have all been excellent. Currently being taught by Steve and it's amazing how much she has progressed. She literally can't wait to go each week. More...
I've been taking my daughter swimming at the Harlow pool since she was 6 weeks old. We both love it and it's the highlight of my week. Can't recommend it enough, brilliant teachers and the staff behind the scenes running it do an amazing job too. More...
Sarah Jane Little
What a brilliant first lesson, Georgia was great with the kids and my son really enjoyed it just gotta work on his listening skills....he didn't want to leave that was a good sign in itself... More...
I cannot recommend Mini Swimming enough!!We have been attending lessons in Frinton-on-Sea with Sam since my little girl was just 8 weeks old! Now 15months old we have made the very sad decision to stop lessons for a while...hopeful to return again in the future. I'd like to thank Sam for his patience, knowledgeable advice & for not pushing my daughter who was clearly struggling more & more every week with her fear of the water, the floats, the armbands, the diving, the jumping, the pool itself, even Sam!...& anything that wasn't a rubber duck basically!!! This fear sadly seemed to appear out of nowhere around 13months. Sam made sure lessons were tailored to her needs and made as enjoyable & relaxed as possible for her during this time, but it became clear her fear was only increasing with every week we attended and pushing her wasn't helping. We came to the decision along with Sam to stop lessons for a while and try lots of swimming as a family in a new environment, without the structure, the pace & commands involved in the lessons that cause her to become anxious prior to even entering the pool...this advice is hugely appreciated & has been working very well so far. Slowly we have seen confidence rebuilding using the techniques Sam has passed on to us. We will continue to do this as a family regularly as recommended and hope to return to Mini swimming Frinton again with our confident little swimmer in the very near future! Thank you again for all your valuable advice Sam. Sarah, Olly & Aida More...
Well done mini swimming great support this week with helping our 4year old daughter transition between classes. New teachers, new class, new pool and still a happy little girl!
Fantastic place!! Great staff. My daughter loves it ���
Highlight of our week! Georgie and Kelly have been fantastic always smiling, engaging and fantastic with the little one's. The new online portal system is superb and has much improved admin and makes renewing really easy. More...
My daughter Millie and I have been swimming with you since the beginning of the year when she was almost 3 months and she has loved it from the beginning! We initially had Claire but now have Sam (we changed our lesson time to one that suited us better). Both instructors are excellent! They are brilliant with the babies and understanding if for example you don't want to do the submersions. We both love the sessions still hence we are on our second term and will most likely be renewing again next term. The changing rooms can often get very busy and chaotic at times so i think this could maybe be looked into but the actual classes we really enjoy. Thanks Mini Swimming! More...
Have watched my two grandsons 3 year old Oscar and is baby brother Oliver now 8 months improve every week and the oldest one gain more and more confident every week keep up the great work
Took my little boy one of the swimming lessons he absolutely loved it! Felt so relaxed by the whole experience.
Excellent instructors. Both my two enjoy their lessons and they have learnt so much. Definitely recommend.
Me and my little boy always look forward to our Mini Swimming class. The classes are lots of fun and the instructors are fantastic.
I have been taking my daughter since she was 6months old. She just loves the water and mini swimming is our favourite part of the week. We love the routine but also every week is different so she doesn't get bored. Special theme weeks are the most exciting! She has grown with confidence and safety. I am looking forward to our 1st holiday with a pool this year. Knowing she can be safe too. More...
Brilliant teacher and nice warm pool for my daughter and I to swim in. My daughter has mild cerebral palsy and they were so good with her. Would definitely recommend!! �� More...
Took my son to first swim with mini swimming when he was 3 months. And it was amazing to see how they helped him grow. We left for a bit and tried somewhere else but realised it wasn't for us. So we came back and again his instructor remains totally understanding when he won't even contemplate a noodle� Brilliant team! More...
Love seeing the updates on page and seeing the reviews people have put and it will be a place I'm sure to visit when in the area with my little boy keep up the good work as feedback is gaining customers from afar xx
Emma Louise Davies
My little one has been attending for one term and he really enjoys it! Georgie is lovely and makes us both feel confident in the water
Have been with miniswimming for 2 and a half years - my daughter started at age 3 after lessons at Riverside and it has made so much difference to her swimming. Her water confidence is now amazing and the games she was playing all helped to teach her to swim. My son is 13 months and already sits on the side and independently chucks himself in and is not bothered by the weekly submersions! Admin have been great with finding us new lesson times when needed. Definitely recommend More...
I've been taking my daughter since she was 4 weeks old and it's the highlight of my week. She loves the water so bath time is a joy and she has become confident in water which I'm sure will help when she swims on her own. Sam is brilliant with my daughter and it feels like he truest cares and wants to get to know every one of his students. The children love him, not just my 1 year old but the older children that is in the class that follows. I wish the classes were longer!! Thanks Sam and Mini Swimming! More...
Jimmy has been swimming with Natalie since he was 3 months old and despite a few weeks of him hating the water (during which time Natalie was very patient with him) he absolutely loves it! As soon as he realises where he is on a Sunday morning he gets very excited and can't wait to get in the pool. I can't recommend these classes enough More...

I have been taking my son swimming since he was 3 months old. From the first lesson I was impressed with how well the instructors (Steve and Kate) adapted the movements for my son. The demonstrations and instructions given are clear and they are both happy to help when needed. I can see how much my son has improved over the past 11 lessons. He seems to enjoy the water and has become more confident. I would definitely recommend them. More...
My little boy has been going to Colchester mini swimming since he was 4 months old, he is now 11 months and has loved every lesson. Victoria the teacher is brilliant! I would recommend mini swimming to anyone! More...
The instructor (Sam) is great, The pool (Frinton) is fabulous and Lottie has come so far in the time we've been there. She loves getting in the water and splashing about!
My little girl has been with mini swimming for over a year now, her progress is amazing can swim confidently on her own. Her teacher is lovely, she loves going each week. I've never had an issue with admin if they cancel it's always re-booked and I've also had refund on lesson that was cancelled. Would 100% recommend mini swimming.x More...
Although we have had a few issues with admin, I have to say, I cannot fault the instructors and how well they have all interacted with the children. Working in education, I have always been impressed with how Sam ( Saturdays at Frinton) has got to know the quirks of each individual child and gets so much out of them. In under a year, my son is now swimming 500m plus! The pool is beautiful, the owners make us feel welcome and mostly, my son loves it. Thanks guys. More...
My little boy loves his lessons :) plenty of contact if a lesson does get cancelled only happend once and lesson refunded instantly
Absolutely love our Mini Swimming class. The loveliest teachers you could hope for, I look forward to every session even if my boy has ideas other than doing what we're meant to �
We are halfway through our first term of swimming in Chelmsford with Georgie and my little boy absolutely loves it! Georgie is such a fantastic teacher and the minute Archie gets in the pool his face lights up when he sees her! He is only 8 months old but already has amazing water confidence, I couldn't be happier. The facilities at Columbus School are adequate as well. So pleased we found mini swimming! x More...
I took my 3 year old daughter to Newlands School on a Sat morning and I think Steve is a brilliant teacher, he made the swimming lessons so much fun for the little ones. I would definitely recommend mini swimming, It's amazing the confidence a child gains from learning to swim More...
Have been taking our girls to mini swimming for several years now and have really seen how our girls have progressed and have so much confidence in the water! Recently, admin have been much more helpful. Changing area/showers are limited but can manage. More...
Excellent teachers, really accommodating with classes, delighted to be doing another term!!
My daughter has been attending mini swimming for the past 3 years and loves going. Teachers go the extra mile and lovely pool.
I would recommend their classes to everyone who wants to swim.
My baby loves swimming every Tuesday with Victoria. Cannot fault her all lessons are fun and made different every week. Will definitely be booking for next year
I have been taking my grandchild and he has come on leaps and bounds. The teachers go the extra mile:) When we are rarely unable to make a class the admin team always try and find us a suitable alternative slot which really makes a difference so we do not loose out. I will always recommend Mini Swimming! More...
It's the highlight of Joshua's week. Can't recommend it enough. Aside from learning to swim-it's a lovely way to spend time each week just the two of us. Sam is so good with the kids too.
I have been bringing my 6 month old for about 7 weeks now and he absolutely loves it! He has shown amazing progression and confidence week by week and that is down to the brilliant swimming teachers. I'm made to feel completely at ease with what we are doing with the babies and everything is explained so well. We really look forward to coming each week More...
Natalie Elisa Neal
A Fantastic team, great fun in lessons, my daughter loves going swimming, thank you to the team
So happy we choose Mini Swimming for our little boy. Albie started at 10 weeks old and has done so well. Ali is a brilliant teacher, and we are gutted we can't make next term, but will 100% be back the following term.
My son had his first lesson today in the Lexden pool and I just want to say how much we both enjoyed it. He had a smile on his face the whole lesson! Can't wait for next week :)
My daughter loves her lessons each week, and is so confident in the water. All the staff are amazing and enthusiastic!
Always enjoy the lessons. Happy to reschedule when we can't make it or the lesson gets cancelled.
Great instructors, keep the children busy. Covers a variety of swimming techniques which my son picks and chooses what he likes to do (typical boy). Really enjoy the class! The half hour lesson goes very quick! More...
My little boy Charlie has been 'swimming' since he was ten weeks! He now 6 months and it's the highlight of our week having a kick and splash with some dips on a Friday.
My 13 month old started swimming with mini swimming from only a couple of months old and he has loved it from day one! It's great to see how much he has come on with splashing, kicking and jumping in! He loves it! The encouragement the teacher gives both parent and baby really helps you feel confident! I'll definitely be continuing with mini swimming for quite some time! More...
Fantastic classes that my daughter loves.
Me and my son loved our first lesson in harlow! Lovely to feel so welcome thank you to staff and the other mums!
Definitely worth a 5 star review. Don't hesetate to book your child in , they'll love every minute & so will you !
Love Mini Swimming, my son loves being in the water & Tiffany is great
Mini swimming is brilliant! We go on Saturday mornings, my son who is 14 months loves it. Each week is different. The staff are very friendly and the pool / changing rooms are very clean. We have had a great first term and are definitely continuing with swimming. Highly recommended More...
My son and I have been attending swimming lessons with mini swimming this term, he started at 9 weeks of age and he and I both enjoy it immensely. The pool is lovely and warm with friendly confident staff. We love the songs and especially enjoyed the pirate themed last session this term and have already booked up for next term. More...
The best swimming class around. Been coming here nearly 2 years now, worth every penny!
I've been taking my little girl Alania for over a year since she was 3 months old. She absolutely loves it and her teacher Tiffany who is fantastic. Would totally recommend mini swimming colchester. More...

My son has been going to mini swimmers for about a year. At first he was very scared of the water. Now with lots of practice with the teacher he can now swim un-aidded. He now loves swimming. Great swimming lessons, teachers and pool! More...
Having been recommended to mini swimming we finally booked Harry in and he absolutely loves his lessons with Victoria. His confidence and skills have already improved and we are only four weeks in!!
We look forward to our swimming Sundays! Such a lovely bunch of babies and mummies and daddies in our class. Finley started the term pretty apprehensive and cried after every submersion. Last week he cracked a few smiles in the water for the first time and didn't even mind the submersion! All thanks to the help and encouragement of Tiffany. She brings the class to life and makes it enjoyable for those participating and spectating. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to another fab term! More...
Had a taster session at mini swimming and was very surprised to see my daughter who previously had been very scared of water started to join in. The teachers were very patient and encouraging. Will defiantly be joining up! More...
Mini Swimming come highly recommended, my little girl has been swimming at the Colchester pool for a long time now and is turning into a really confident little swimmer, she loves her teacher Tiffany! The classes are fun and encouraging and the pool always warm and spotless. We love how everyone is so friendly and we've made some great friends there. :-) More...
We are so impressed at how Mini Swimming run their lessons. Alice went swimming before at Hadleigh, she wasn't that keen, wasn't able to build up her confidence, came away unable to do more than the basics, and said it wasn't much fun at all. At Mini Swimming Ipswich, Alice loves the lessons, always laughing and learning that swimming can be fun. Alice needs the reasurance and confidence in swimming, Steve and his collegue are fantastic at providing that and more. I am recommending Mini Swimming to everyone I know. Well done Mini Swimming! More...
My son Fraser loves his swimming lessons at Halifax Primary School Ipswich, Steve and Keira are great instructors, he looks forward to it every week. He is doing fantastic and his confidence in the water has grown loads all thanks to mini swimming! Keep up the good work guys :) More...

Megan and I love mini swimming in Colchester, Tiffany and Steve make lessons so much fun and Megan loves the water! Pool is lovely and always clean. It's our favourite time of the week! More...
After trying 2 other places in colchester previous to mini swim I finally found somewhere that ticks all the boxes. A nice warm pool that's not too big and scary, clean and warm changing area and most importantly very friendly and enthusiastic instructors. Harry really looks forward to his lessons and quite often sings the welcome song in the bath followed by full face bonkers bubbles!! More...
Our two little ones love their swimming lessons and are both doing so well :) thank you Kelly xx
What a fantastic swimming class. My little guy Ralph received his first certificate today. He has done so well & we are so proud of him. A big thank you to Ali x
Michelle Dawn Hart
My boy and I love our swimming lessons with Steve and always look forward to Tuesdays. I now have lots of confidence swimming and just being in the water with my baby boy so thank you Steve
I have been taking my son for swimming lessons here for 4 weeks now, I cannot fault it at all. Steve, the instructor, is wonderful with all the babies in the class and is an excellent example of a swimming teacher. We look forward to getting in the warm pool for these lessons every week. My son also participated in an under water photo shoot, an amazing experience for us both and the pictures were fantastic. Would highly recommend this fun, yet professional, place for swimming lessons. More...
We love mini swimming! Eleni has learnt so much in her sessions with Steve, she is so water confident and happy in water, I can't wait to see the transition to swimming on her own. We also recently had underwater photos of Alexis taken, which was amazing and the photos are brilliant. More...
We look forward to our Monday morning class my son loves it.
I have been going to classes with Miniswimming at Chelmsford since my son was 10 weeks old and now that he is nearly 21 months, he absolutely loves going swimming. The teachers are really good, creating a friendly and fun atmosphere. Good facilities, large and warm pool. I would recommend Miniswimming and think it's one of the best schools in Chelmsford. More...
Amy Elizabeth Cole
My daughter Eliza has made so much progress already! Can't believe how much confidence she now has in the water...it won't be long before she's swimming on her own!
Amelia started her lessons back in April and loves it. She has become more and more confident in the water and loves Steve, Georgie and Charlotte, the instructors shes had so far. Lovely pool, lovely team, instructors and admin staff. Wouldnt hesitate in recommending your services to any of my friends/family. Keep up the good work Mini Swimming x More...
My three old year old was starting to get that fear of water so I signed him up to Mini Swimming and he loves it. His confidence has come on hugely and I don't think it will be long until he is in a child only class. The lessons are made really fun for the kids (and adults!) and my son is devastated if we ever have to miss a lesson! Highly recommended! More...
I enrolled my son at mini swimming on a recommendation and he got on so well that I also enrolled my baby, who even in 3 weeks has grown in confidence. The staff are welcoming and friendly, the pool etc is always warm and clean and getting sibling discount is also a great bonus. I will recommend mini swimming. More...
This is my daughters second term at mini swimming and she loves it!Georgie and Steve are brilliant would recommend anyone joining the swimming lessons.
We just started our first term with mini swimming and our baby boy absolutely loves it. He loves kicking around in the pool. Tiffany makes the classes really fun and we are really enjoying her class. More...
Both my 2 year old daughter and 5 month old son started their mini swimming classes at the Columbus pool today, they both absolutely loved it. Our little girl did the diving under water, which we never thought she'd do as she hates getting water in her face in the bath! But she seemed completely comfortable in the water. Our little boy had lots of smiles and giggles when he was floating around the pool. The teachers do a great job of making the children feel comfortable and making the lessons fun. It was a through enjoyable morning! Looking forward to next week. More...
Lauren Faye Cooke
My twins Eli & Reed love swimming with mini swimming. It's their 3rd term now and I can see the development in them all the time. So great to have somewhere that is great and reasonable to make them confident in the water and somewhere they can have fun More...
I changed my daughter from a competitor to mini swimming this year as the pools were too cold and she was always crying. Mini swimming have a beautiful pool, very warm and lovely changing area. Tiffany our teacher is fantastic and swimming is my daughters favourite time of the week.. Mini swimming are fantastic! More...
My son has now been attending lessons at the Upminster Pool for 9 months and he throughly enjoys it. Each lesson is different and he is learning how to swim and be safe in the water. Ali is a brillent teacher and even when Joshua doesn't co-operate she is really patient with him. I have recommended mini swimming to my friends & family. More...
There is only one word I would use to describe Mini Swimming- Fantastic! I have been taking my little boy Charlie swimming since he was 3 months old and have used a couple of local swimming clubs, none of which are are in the same league as Mini Swimming. Since joining Charlie has become more confident and now enjoys the lesson, whereas he would previously cry and be so distressed I would have to get out. This is all thanks to the patience and great teaching style of the instructors, Steve in particular, who Charlie loves!! Overall an amazing team, with a real passion for their job. I look forward to each lesson and many more terms to come. Xx More...
We have been attending swimming lessons at Lexden with the brilliant Tiffany teaching since my little girl was 18months old. Having gone off swimming entirely, she now LOVES the water again and shows growing confidence every week - she doesn't stop smiling throughout her lessons. Can't recommend highly enough. More...
Louise WasGreen McNamee
We were recommended Mini Swimming at Lexden by our friends & our little boy loves it, he has made loads of friends & has so much confidence in the water & he's only 15 months. Tiffany is a fabulous teacher & we highly recommend mini swimming to anyone looking to start swimming. More...
Absolutely love Mini Swimming, love the cleanliness and warmth of the pool and changing facilities. Love the teaching staff, their kind, friendly and approachable nature, their coaching styles, always using safe practices and giving clear instructions to both the children and parents explaining the progressions. But most of all I love that my 3year old son not only looks forward to swimming lessons but has learnt &achieved so much (more than I had ever imagined children at such a young age would.) I have heard lots of negative things about swimming sessions with other companies, but have only positive feedback for Mini Swimming. 100% recommend. More...
Michelle Bo Boyd
I can't swim so it's always been important that my son can. We started when he was just 6 weeks and now at 18 weeks he's loving it and has got those kicky legs down! The pool is great and the teachers are so good with all the kids. Definitely the best bonding experience I've had with my son (and his dad even enjoyed bringing him too!) ☺️ More...
Great place for young children to learn the basic skills of swimming. My son loves the water and is really progressing with his kicks and splashy hands. Lovely staff who are always happy to help. More...
We love mini swimming, my little boy loves the water and Steve has put me at ease being in the water with him too! We're a military family and are always recommending you to other military families! It'll be a sad day when we get posted! More...
Excellent swimming school. My daughter who is only 3 had her first swim alone lesson on Sunday (we actually didn't think she was ready but her teacher Kelly knew she was) and she did fab : )
Beatrix loves swimming and learning with mini swimmers.x
Brilliant! Our little girl started at 8 weeks and were now starting our second term with mini swimming and she is loving it. I have and will continue to recommend it to friends. :) More...

Would recommend mini swimming to everyone. Freddie & Jasmine both love their swimming classes & are making steady progress progressing up the levels. Teachers are patient & friendly which is great for them More...
My 10 week old baby daughter Isla had her first lesson last week, she absolutely loved it! I was pleased to see a lovely clean pool, changing rooms and a friendly welcome. Looking forward to the rest of her lessons. :0) More...
