All You Need to Know for Bubble Babies
at Kingsley School
(SAT NAV: Specify Kettering not Burton Latimer).
Swimming Pool Entrance (back entrance)
Aim to arrive for your lesson about 10 minutes before the class begins.
Park your car in the School Car Park and enter the school through the back door pictured above.
There are four changing rooms (two male and two female).
Please remove your shoes and socks before entering the changing rooms.
Please no eating or drinking in the Changing Rooms.
You may want to bring along a changing mat.
Your baby will need to wear a snug fitting disposable swimming nappy that forms a tight seal around the legs and waist with a non disposable cloth swimming nappy over the top. You should make sure that you bring some spare disposable nappies, as a soiled one will have to be removed immediately.
Please place ALL your used nappies in the bin bag attached to the side of the white nappy bin (not in the general rubbish bins).
Please keep the changing room benches clear of your belongings so that other people can use them while you are swimming. There are pegs to hang clothes on. Please don’t leave valuables unattended.
Please no jewellery to be worn.
Please no chewing gum.
Please use the shower before swimming.
Please do not enter the water until the teacher is present and your lesson is scheduled to start.
Make sure you dry your baby’s ears well after your swim and put a warm hat on before going outdoors in cold or wet, windy weather.
Never bring your baby swimming if they have any form of ear, eye, nose, throat or chest infection, diarrhoea, chicken pox or measles. Wait until symptoms have completely cleared for at least 48 hours, or the doctor has given the all clear, before returning.
Ideally try not feed your baby in the hour before class.
Due to the high demand for places, only one parent is able to accompany baby in the pool during classes. You are very welcome, however, to take it in turns if you both want to swim with perhaps mum in the pool one week and dad in the next!
Please check your mobiles before coming to your lessons as occasionally classes may have to be cancelled at short notice.
Please feel welcome to ask questions and give feedback.
Remember, the most important aspect of Baby and Parent Swimming Lessons is to have fun and relax. Always respect your baby’s unique individual pace and take time to give plenty of love, praise and trust.
Guests are welcome to observe from poolside (if Covid restrictions allow) but should also remove their shoes.
Please no eating or drinking on poolside.
Please ask permission before taking photographs/video.
