Classes & Playgroups (0-5 years) Norwich



Little Bobbers offers swimming lessons to babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. So, what are we all about…?
• We want to give children a positive introduction to the water and our lessons are structured to develop their awareness of and confidence in the water
• As children progress, we move towards introducing the skills that will help them as they take those early steps towards independent swimming
• Little Bobbers looks at each child as an individual and we work at your child’s pace
• But above all, the time you and your child spend in the pool should be as enjoyable as possible – the happiness of your child is paramount.

We work in Cromer (Mon, Wed, Thurs) and in Norwich (Tues & Fri)
