Vicky - is our swimming school owner and has been teaching swimming for over 20 years. She is extremely passionate about the importance of learning to swim and has huge pride in the swimming school and the team. Always trying her best to ensure the swimming school is the best it can be and hoping to continue for years to come.
The confidence that Little Dolphins have given our son is brilliant, he absolutely loves swimming because of this. I definitely recommend booking for lessons and there’s plenty of FREE parking. swimming lessons
My daughter with Special needs did a few lessons in the summer holiday intensive class. We were so happy with how they supported her and how happy she was she has now started regular lessons. She had her first one last week and wow, the ladies were fantastic with her. The small class sizes help but we would definitely recommend to our friends!
Vicky and the team at Little Dolphins have been fantastic with my 2 boys (aged 4 & 6) who have come on leaps and bounds in the year that we'be been here. Both boys were not confident in the water, now they are happy & confident in the water, consistently making progress, and look forward to swimming each week! Thank you Little Dolphins x
Very pleased with the swimming classes and instructors. Nice venue, small and child friendly facilities.
