Swimming lessons from 6 months old

Whether I'm teaching babies, kids or adults, my approach includes understanding each student's personality; building their confidence and making lessons fun. What's more, I incorporate aspects of safety into my lessons.

In this way, I have seen babies and kids flourish into happy and safe swimmers. My stroke learning classes have helped older kids swim competitively at primary-school. I've also seen adults thrive when enabled to swim.

Baby Swim

A water adaptation programme for babies from 6 months as well as older children who are younger than 2˝/3. Maximum of 4 kids per 30 minute class.


For littlies who are comfortable learning without a parent in the pool. Maximum of 3 kids per 30 minute class. Private and adult lessons also offered.

Stroke learning

For kids who are ready to learn strokes. Maximum of 4 kids per
30 minute class. Private and adult lessons also offered.

I started taking my children to Lynn for swimming lessons 3 months ago, and she won their confidence right from the first lesson, and they have all made huge progress on all fronts. I have been impressed at the personalised mix of reassurance and encouragement that Lynn gives each child. She has an ability to give them courage to try new things and to ‘jump in at the deep end’, to persevere until they get strokes right, while at the same time making sure that they really are water safe, and have fun in the process. They really do love going to their lessons, they love the warm water and they look forward to jumping onto the ‘magic carpet’, learning to dive and do handstands in the water! She is also very patient with us parents :), and I look forward to their lessons too.

My daughter was really not doing well at swimming when I decided to move her to Lynn.. it was the best move I made! Lynn has a lovely way with kids and soon my daughter was loving swimming lessons and gaining confidence in the pool. To my absolute amazement Lynn got my daughter not just swimming but swimming really well within three months of lessons! I cannot recommend Lynn highly enough!

Our 2 year old son started swimming lessons with Lynn in autumn. Within a month he has grown hugely in confidence and is well on the way to being water safe by next summer! Great job Lynn!

I highly recommend Lynn's swimming lessons. Both my 4 year old and 2 year old daughters have made great strides since starting with Lynn 7 months ago. My 4 year old now swims happily and confidently, and my 2 year old is almost swimming unaided (initially she struggled with her ears and Lynn also got her past this hurdle and the water sensation). Lynn creates a fun environment for the girls to learn and incorporates songs for every new swimming technique. Lynn also has small classes with the maximum ever having been 3 children per lesson. My girls adore her.

Lynn has transformed our little girl from a very timid baby swimmer , too scared to put her face in the water . To an unbelievably confident swimmer who now has a passion for swimming . Fully capable of getting across the pool unaided before her 3rd birthday. She looks forward to every lesson , it is never a battle to leap into Lynn's pool. It has been the most remarkable experience watching Mia gain so much love for the water in a relatively short time. Lynn is amazing with all the children she teachers. Her classes are small and she is so accommodating to all our busy life schedules to ensure we are able to give our children the opportunity to learn this vital life skill.

Lynn transformed our young son's outlook on swimming in a short space of time. He went from fearing the water to loving it, from climbing in gingerly to doing dive-bombs!, from refusing to put his head in the water to blowing bubbles at every opportunity. In short, she has made him water safe and water loving. Without Lynn's amazing rapport with the children she works with, this would not have been possible.

I've been taking my 3 year old son and 1 year daughter to Lynn since April and they have come such a very long way from their first lesson. My son in particular was terrified of putting his head under water when he first started but through Lynn's incredibly patient, encouraging, and fun approach, he has overcome that and now looks forward to his lessons and being in the pool in general. I am sure she will have him swimming on his own shortly. I highly recommend Lynn to anyone looking for a highly qualified and capable teacher. She is wonderful with children!

Lynn creates such a fabulous environment for our kids (aged 4 and 2) to enjoy themselves and learn at the same time. The boys have showed massive improvement in the short while we have had lessons, and I feel confident, that before the holiday season arrives, the boys will be completely water safe. I have looked far and wide and i am so pleased we found Lynn :)

I never write reviews, but my kids aged 6 and 4 have been swimming with Lynn for over a year and have made amazing progress. Within a short amount of time she taught both to swim well with proper stroke and most importantly, nurtured a love for swimming and water. With her gentle, kind and fun manner, she will have even the shyest child in the water. She seems to have endless patience with my sometimes very active child and had my barely 3 year old at the time swimming confidently and safely.

I would highly recommend Lynn's swimming lessons. Both my 5 and 2 year olds have made great strides since starting with Lynn. She has adapted her programme to suit the (very different) personalities of both boys, and they love her. She is patient and encouraging, and always willing to be flexible and go the extra mile. My 5-year old is now swimming happily and confidently, and my 2- year old is well on the way to swimming independently.

Lynn is really amazing with my son. He started at Swim4Tots 6 months ago and is almost ready to swim on his own. I highly recommend swim4tots to all parents.

My daughter started swimming lessons last year and LOVES it. Lynn is patient, gentle and has wonderful techniques to encourage the kids and to make swimming fun, while teaching important safety practices as well. I highly recommend Swim4Tots. :)

Lynn taught both my young boys to swim. Not only did they learn to be safe in water, and some basic strokes but also had great fun doing it. I would highly recommend Lynn as a teacher.

Lynn is a fabulous, kind, supportive, dedicated swimming teacher who took my 2 girls from baby swimming at 6 months old to full fledged swimmers and continued to assist on stroke correction and enhancement. My girls both love her and have flourished under her teaching. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Lyn is amazing. I have 2 year old twins and being water safe is very important as we have a big pool. Both my boys can already safely get to the edge if they fall in and swim a few meters. My daughter who is 5 has been with Lyn since she was a baby and can do all her strokes and proper adult dives. Now that she is at big school she is one of the better swimmers in the class. Lyn imparts a love of swimming to kids and is always patient and sensitive to a child's anxieties.

My son started lessons with 'Teacher Lynn' about 3 years ago, and went from being a child afraid of being in the water, to a confident, happy swimmer who now loves being in the pool. Lynn's patience and dedication to the kids she teaches is amazing to watch. Her interaction with them and the way she uses her technique to make swimming fun and not the instruction-based technique used by so many other swimming schools/ teachers is what makes her special. I would recommend this swimming school any day.

Lynn is an absolutely fabulous teacher - she is patient and kind, encouraging little ones to grow in confidence without pushing them too hard. Her classes are small and intimate and paced around your little one - kids of similar abilities are grouped together. My daughter had an innate fear of water due to poor teaching methods at another swimming school. She is now 5 and swimming like a fish thanks to Lynn!

Lynn is an amazing teacher. She taught both my kids to swim by the age of 3 1/2 with her patience and brilliant techniques.

I tired various teachers and Lynn is the best with young kids. She never shouts at them, they love the lessons and look forward to them.
You cannot go wrong with sending your kids here to learn to swim.

Our daughter started with Lynn's BabySwim programme when she was 1. She is now almost 3 and can swim. We've found Lynn to be a fantastic teacher. She teaches with great fun and enthusiasm while instilling confidence in children. As a result, they are very comfortable in the water while learning swimming and safety skills.

Our children simply adore Lynn. It is never an issue getting them to attend lessons. Lynn is one of the few people we know who has the skill and patience to teach children of all ages. She is a real asset to communities and her passion and commitment is fantastic. We are very proud of our little swimmers. Having kids who are water-safe and can swim at the age of 2 is amazing.

Lynn is a patient, encouraging and competent swimming teacher. My kids adore her, and more importantly, both my 4-year-old and my 2-year-old are able to get themselves across a pool, 'dive' in, get to the side of the pool, and climb out safely. By adhering to a syllabus and structure, Lynn is flexible in accommodating the needs and talents of each child that she teaches. I highly recommend her without hesitation.
