Our Previous Swimmers

Wow what can I say! I highly recommend Lynsey and her professional yet fun approach to swimming.

My son started swimming with Lynsey when he was just under 1 years old, after only 2 sessions he's now confident enough to go underwater and hold onto the wall by himself.

I cant thank her enough for the confidence and techniques she has given my son to allow him to improve.
I cannot rate Lynsey enough! My little girl started her swimming classes when she was only 4 months old. She progressed so well, her confidence and love for the water came from the dedication Lynsey put on every single class we had.
I took my Son Oliver for swimming lessons with Lynsey from 4 months until he was 2 years old.

I highly recommend Lynsey, she made the lessons so fun that it really felt like our bonding time together, and quickly became our favourite part of our week.

Swim safely with your baby

Coming soon - our new online course for babies from 0 to 6 months old.

No previous experience is needed as we will talk you through everything you need to know for that big moment of taking your baby swimming for the first time.
At the end of the 10 week course you will have learnt how to swim your baby under water and even feel confident enough to release your baby and have a little swim on their own!
They will learn breath control, how to hold onto the wall for safety, how to swim on their fronts, backs as well as some floating all in a fun way with games and songs.

Your New Online Swimming Teacher

Hello my name is Lynsey, and I am the creator and owner of The Online Swim School.

I have over 11 years of experience teaching swimming in the UAE, London, Essex, and multiple locations across the UK.

I have decided to create an online platform which is accessible to anyone and everyone and enables carers to teach their own children how to swim.

Any Questions?

Yes of course you can. If you feel uneasy in the water take someone with you for support. You will find that over time your confidence will grow too.
Yes, you can. You may just need to adjust some of the swimming positions so that they are on more of an incline as opposed to a horizontal position. This will make it more comfortable for your baby.
Not necessarily, the swimming pool is a totally different environment. You may be pleasantly surprised.
The chlorinated water will not make your babies eczema worse. I would however recommend putting on a barrier cream and a wetsuit so they don’t feel slippery in the water. Be sure to shower baby after the session.
I would recommend not feeding baby a full feed up to an hour before the session. You are more than welcome to give baby a top up feed if they are a little hungry before the lesson begins, as swimming is hungry work!
If baby is ok in themselves then I would say yes. You may want to avoid underwater swims if baby is bunged up, perhaps just keep them on the surface. They will be back under the water in no time.
Baby should wear a disposable swimming nappy with a neoprene nappy (also called a happy nappy) over the top. Ensure a snug fit around the tummy and thighs so that no accidents escape into the pool. We would recommend Huggies Little Swimmers or happy nappies by Splash About ( as featured in our videos).
Between 30 °C and 32 °C is an ideal temperature. If your baby is less than 12lb then we recommend the water to be at least 32 °C or add a neoprene wetsuit to increase your baby's body temperature.
