My little boy love it and the warmth of the pool, everyone his always cheerful and friendly, they help him when he gets stuck at the side of the pool


My daughter has been attending swim! Since it first opened its doors and she absolutely loves every lesson! The staff are brilliant and are ALWAYS so involved with the children. The changing rooms - they are unisex just like any other swimming place and have separate cubicles


Started my son at swim! Last week, had a free trial which Mike was great with him. My son really took to him and was so excited to be with him for his lessons. This did get changed to Laura taking the lessons. Which turned out to be great, he's had 2 lessons with her and I feel she has pushed him. He is already confident in the water, but needs to learn the actual swimming. Within his second lesson she tried him without his bands on, staying with him while he tried, which he did great with but still needs a few more lessons to build him up more. Can't thank her enough for pushing him so much already and I feel with Laura taking his lessons he will do great and be pushed to achieve. He gets so excited to come.


Could not recommend swim Mansfield more. We had lessons elsewhere previously and in comparison swim is 1000% better. We do the baby classes and Becky one of the teachers is fab nothing is ever too much trouble and you can tell she enjoys her job. My child is absolutely thriving in lessons we throughly enjoy our time at swim.


My little girl loves this place . We have been going since it opened and my girl has grown so much I'm confidence. She is very routine based and the staff work with us amazingly. The staff are friendly and cannot do enough to help. Very approachable. The fact I can see her progress when we log in is a bonus and we can see what we need to do to move up. The fact that the teachers when not in the pool are also seen around the pool etc helped my girl transition to macey when Sophie left . All in all I can not recommend this place highly enough. Thank you swim mansfield


We have been taking our little boy to swim classes to a lot of different venues and the facilities here are so much better than what we have experienced from other places. The classes are more personalised and intimate to give baby that one on one teaching. So glad we take him there now


"My son loves to come swimming here, his technique is going from strength to strength! He can’t wait to get in the pool every week, he loves the staff they make us feel more than welcome every week. My other little one also goes babies, she can’t wait to get in the pool and access all the equipment they have set up. I love how you are learning throughout the lessons with how to hold in the water, or how to use the equipment. She loves the toys and the lesson is entertaining from start to finish thanks to the lovely teacher on a Friday. Brilliant product love to go."


Took my 4m old for his first swimming lesson and he loved every minute of it! Staff are all extremely friendly and helpful, and the building is a very clean, hygienic, safe environment. Pool was lovely and warm and they have loads of floats/ sensory balls for babies. The changing rooms are really spacious with many having their own baby change. Could not recommend more!


I have been taking my little boy who is 10 months old for around 5 weeks. And we both really enjoy it. The facilities are excellent, the staff are very friendly. Our instructor is extremely engaging and encouraging, she does an excellent job.


My son was very anxious about getting back into the water post covid and Swim have been amazing from day one. Hannah his teacher has been nothing but supportive and has really encouraged an anxious little boy above and beyond all expectations. 100% recommended to all!


What can i say? My son has had 5 lessons and going from not ever swimming or wanting to get in a pool he's able to swim on his own and with out any arm rings, the teachers and all staff are fantastic can be more helpful, definitely recommend SWIM. Thanks for being amazing Mansfield swim


My 5 year old loves it she looks forward to her lesson every week everyone is really friendly and helpful.The smile on her face when she get there says it all really 


Swim! are fantastic. From the cleanliness and the welcoming decor, to the friendliness of the staff and how they are great with the children. The teaching style and small groups have really helped my children to love swimming and they can’t wait to return for their lesson the week after.
