first swim


We are SO SO SO excited to announce that our new Chiswick swim centre is now open for bookings!
When will it open for lessons?
We are working hard behind the scenes and our shiny new doors are due to open for the start of our Winter term on Monday December 7th 2020.
What facilities do you have at Chiswick?
Exactly like our First Swim Twickenham premises, we will have a bespoke and super clean heated pool which has been purpose built by us from scratch for the sole use of babies and children swimming. We will have fabulous heated changing rooms with showers and changing facilities making it as easy as possible for all! We are open seven days a week and have an exclusive coffee shop offering super coffee and cake to our members.
Where is it?
Chiswick High Road, between Turnham Green Park and Chiswick Business Park, next to Snap Fitness Gym.
What courses will you offer?
We offer our courses in terms with a lesson each week. Our courses for Baby and Toddler Levels with the parent in the pool start at our Bright Start Babies Level 1 and go up to Talented Toddlers Level 8 (approx. 4 years old). Our bespoke programmes of structured lessons adhere to the STA Swim Programme. We  currently have a maximum of 7 babies per class.
We also offer our Kick-Start Kids programmes which are for older children from 4-7 years old. These lessons are also sold in terms with a lesson each week but the parent is not in the pool, they can take advantage of a prime spot with a well deserved coffee!
What about the teachers?
Our teachers are the heart of what we do here at First Swim. They will take care of you and your child. They are there to make sure your baby or toddler is learning in an environment that is safe and fun. Our teachers are STA/ASA qualified in Baby/Pre-school teaching as a minimum, plus they all have a lifesaving award.
What level is right for us?
To help answer this, please use our level finder on our website that can be found here. If you have particular circumstances or still would like us to help you, please email us – it’s not always an exact science!
What are the term dates?
Our first term at Chiswick is our Winter term which is 9 weeks long and starts on Monday 7th December. There are 2 breaks in the term for Christmas and February half term
Is there parking?
There is a large Sainsburys car park less than a 5 minute walk away and metered parking on Chiswick High Road itself and the surrounding roads. Our nearest tube/train stations are Chiswick Park, Turnham Green and Gunnersbury
