What is my child required to wear?
All children are to wear sensible swimwear. All children under 3 or not-fully toilet-trained must wear a swimmer nappy and water tight swim pants (Happy Nappy) to prevent accidental contamination of the pool”. . A swimmer nappy on its own or with board shorts is not sufficient.
It is also each parent's responsibility to check their child's nappy from time to time to ensure that an accident has not occurred, if this does occur they must be taken out of the pool, cleaned and changed into clean swimwear before they can re-enter the lesson.
Parents in the aquababies classes please make sure that you wear appropriate swimwear and a rash shirt/t-shirt if possible. The rash shirt gives the child something to grab hold of during the activities and prevents any embarrasing moments.
What if I miss a lesson?
