Sensory Swim Cubs Classes

We know that all little bear cubs are different. We've created Sensory Swim Cubs for cubs with unique sensory needs. This class is perfect for autistic bear cubs, and bear cub's with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, and other sensory needs.

Swim Cubs is an Autism Swim approved swim school. We have completed a specialised training programme which has equipped us with the knowledge, tools, skills and resources to effectively teach your bear cub how to be confident, safe & happy in the water.

  • Parent & child classes for age group 2 years - 4.5 years
  • Small classes with a maximum of four bear cubs per class
  • Private pool environment for a calm space to learn
  • Warm hydrotherapy pool
  • We use water therapy, visual aids and sensory swim toys to help your bear cub learn water safety, swimming skills, and most importantly, to grow a love of the water
