Welcome to the Jump In and Swim School – swimming lessons for children in Northamptonshire. My name is Judith Pennington and I started swimming with my two children, Gabriella and Ruben when they were babies. It was during this time that I decided to have a career change and trained to become a Waterbabies instructor in March 2007.
Knowing how important it is to be confident and happy in the water and learning to swim at a young age, I soon found out there was a gap in the market for swimming lessons ‘with a difference’ for 2 year olds and above. After having many requests from friends to teach their children, I decided to set up my own small swim school in October 2007. Requests continued, and when my daughter finished with Waterbabies, being able to swim over 10m confidently, and started school, I decided to expand my swim school to include school age children and the Jump In and Swim School was born.
At the Jump In and Swim School, the priority is on water safety and confidence. The classes are kept small, are high energy and lots of fun. Core swimming skills are taught in a progressive and fun way, with woggles, floats and SwimFins used when necessary.
I am always on the look out for new pools and instructors, so please do contact me if you know of any.
