Living in Dubai, we are lucky enough to have a swimming pool around every corner. Learning how to swim is not only an amazing life skill but also great exercise and fun. This is why having lessons from whatever age, not only gets children used to being in the water, but also helps to ease that parental worry of drowning.

Hamilton Aquatics has been teaching swimming to children of all ages for years in the UAE. From babies as young as three months old, you can get your little ones confident in the water before they can even walk! Give your child the gift of water safety and confidence and book a lesson today. And British Mums even get 10% off using promo code BRITISHMUMS10. Lucky us!

Their programmes have been carefully designed to include every aspect of swimming, from water safety and water confidence to most importantly enjoying the water! For the baby sessions, you’ll scrub on your nursery rhyme knowledge as you sing and splash away in the pool, whilst also having a great bonding experience between you and your child.

From 3 years, children then move onto Hamilton’s Learn to Swim programme, where they can go from Level One, right up to Platinum Level before becoming part of their award-winning Squad Programme.

Hamilton’s teachers are the very best you can get here with amazing experience teaching swimming and are qualified to Swim England level 2. And if you’re the kind of parent who likes to constantly track progress, they have an online parent portal ‘Hamilton Bay’ which means you can see in real-time how your child is doing, as well as manage your bookings and book catch-ups.

Getting started is simple, book a free in person assessmentor a free online assessment, where you can fill out some details about your child’s current swim ability. Then you can choose from any of the classes suitable in the 30+ locations across the UAE!

Plus, what’s more, the class costs are calculated on a pro-rate, so you can start at any time throughout the term!  Hamilton Aquatics also offer a 20% discount if you swim twice a week and 40% off your 3rd weekly swim. Each time a child moves up a level they receive a free swim cap and a certificate to celebrate their achievement.
