I highly recommend Lynn Radford, she is magic with kids. Small classes, high quality. The tented and heated pool makes swimming fun even in winter. By learning in a playful way, using songs, a clear routine and lots of exciting exercises, my daughter was "poolsafe" very quickly. She was a bit anxious in the beginning but doesn't mind water in her eyes anymore, she dives toys from the bottom, her body knows what to do when falling into the water (in pajamas): turn around, catch the side and hold on tight :-)
Lynn is experienced, kind, fun, interested, positively chaotic, very flexible to make up missed lessons and we made friends with other parents. Come and join us :-)

I cannot rate Lynn highly enough. My son started lessons with her at 11 months and has an absolute love for water because of Lynn's kind approach. He is 22 months old now and is able to fetch an item from the deep end of the pool already. Lynn is extremely accommodating and so enthusiastic about progress. I would highly recommend her approach as she will foster a love of water and swimming.

Lynn is a fantastic swimming coach with a real knack for bringing out the best in her kids. She teaches water safety and builds confidence in and out of the pool with her caring affirming approach. Lynn draws on her vast experience to keep the lessons fresh and exciting, with a wide variety of games and exercises. And her lessons are individually tailored to the ability of each child in the group.
Our daughter Kenji loves swimming with Lynn, her confidence has grown in leaps and bounds since she started lessons last year, and she’s formed close friendships with her classmates. In less than 6 months of lessons she has progressed from non swimmer to water safe and learning the foundations of Freestyle! Today, before she went to class, she even asked me to send a WhatsApp message “to tell teacher Lynn how much she loves swimming with her”.

Lynn has taught my little one how to swim since 7 months of age. She is a kind, lovely teacher who teaches kids to be water safe and flourish in the pool. My toddler fell into a pond last year and was able to get to the side of it because of the lessons, saving her life. Highly recommend lessons with her.

Lynn is an incredible swim teacher! Our 2-year old started lessons with her 6 months ago and is already swimming (with Lynn’s guidance) to the bottom of the pool to pick up plastic snakes. This makes her super proud of herself and builds her confidence in the water.
She is learning to float now which is a wonderful skill in terms of safety.
Lynn has an amazing way with the toddlers. She teaches them with love and patience and it is clear the kids love her.
Lynn’s swim class is the highlight of our daughter’s week. I cannot recommend her enough.

I can’t rate Lynn more highly! We started swimming with her about 2.5 months ago and my 2 and 3 year old are picking plastic snakes off the bottom of the pool and nearly floating on their backs! Benji has conquered his very real fear of the water. He never used to like me washing his hair and now I can’t keep him from blowing bubbles in the bath and getting soaked at bath time! This happened within a very short period of time. Lynn has a natural get-through to children and knows how much to push them. I have heard via another mommy that her daughter is at another swim school and has been for over a year-and hasn’t put her head under yet!!
We have found lessons lots of fun and learnt a lot.

I cannot convey my gratitude for the wonderful swimming skills that you have taught my little one. I was always concerned about water safety but I am at ease knowing that you have instilled in him a great confidence and taught him a skill that he will use all his life. I cannot explain the joy that I feel when I watch him swim with such confidence despite his tender years. You teach with passion and kindness and your unique and fun-filled lessons and gentle guidance allows your little learners to learn and enjoy themselves simultaneously. He looks forward to each class and enjoys your little ditties.
Thank you very much!
With much love and our fondest regards,
Fatima and little Shakeel

I really like Lynn's approach to teaching which is confidence-building, fun and yet safety-conscious. She pushes the kids to try new things but also knows when not to push as she watches each kid closely. My 2 year old daughter's swimming has progressed so much in this supportive environment and swimming lessons are the highlight of her week.

Lynn is fantastic with the kids. She gives each of them individual attention. Builds their confidence and creates lots of games and songs to make swimming fun.

Lynn is a fantastic swimming teacher. My daughter is 21 months and a little mermaid! Lynn keeps the pool very warm so we were able to swim throughout the winter (really critical if you want your child to learn quickly) and I loved that when we were away, Lynn let us make up those classes. Can't recommend her enough!

I can fully concur with many of the other reviews, my first little boy had lost all of his confidence and was terrified of swimming, Lynn with her gentle nature and understanding of children has totally transformed him and now I battle to get him out the water. My second son has started with Lynn too and is exceeding expectations within a very short time. So pleased to have found Lynn, a true gem !

My little boy has been very scared of water, and never wanted to go into it but after 4 lessons with Lynn he jumps in and dives into her arms. His confidence in the water and around water has done a 360 and he just adores teacher Lynn.
I couldn’t recommend her school enough, her patience and dedication is amazing and we always look forward to our next lesson. Scheduling classes is easy and she is very accommodating and understanding 💙💙
