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

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 :)

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

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...

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

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
