Check out baby swimming classes, many run toddler classes too. And I think it's a good thing if the teacher is in the pool too, I took my eldest to 'intensive' swimming classes for a week when she was 8 and the teacher just did way too much shouting cos she wasn't in the pool at the children's level.

And no I don't think she's too young, been taking dd4 since she was 7mo, with a break when we couldn't go cos I broke my foot! I'm sure if she wasn't so chunky she'd be away, as it is she's just too heavy to move herself through the water, but she's getting there. She's 2 and 2m.

Age 3 months to 3 years is the first and you have to get in the water with them.

after that the next one up is age 3 but they will make sure that they are happy to be in the water Smile

My DD started doing hers when she was 4 she loves going now Love
