ABC Baby Classes

ABC Baby Classes

Juniors Swimming - Costs and Booking


Set Courses
We run four consecutive courses of ten weeks over the school year from September to July, often the last course may be less due to events beyond our control, follow the timetable of most schools. Therefore we take breaks during Christmas, Easter and the half term holidays. We may run intensive classes over the course of one or two weeks during the summer holiday.

Each half hour class currently costs £7.00 and you must book and pay for a course in advance. (As at July 2012)

Private classes
If you have use of a family swimming pool then we can often run private classes for either yourself on a one to one basis or with others that you would like to join you. These would be half hour classes and the fee would be £15.00 per child if one or two are in attendance, if more children attend the price per child would reduce.


Set Courses
If you have more than one child attending our classes, either Junior or baby then the first child pays the full fee and any further child receives a 15% discount on the course.
