About your GoTo Expert
Our focus is on the 4 elements of swimming – Starting from 6 weeks in the Teeny Weeny classes all the way through to the Ninja Independents, we have stages to suit all Pre-School ages and abilities.
Everything we do at Little Turtles comes from a belief that children have a deep & primal connection with water … & this fluid environment gifts them the space to find self flow, rotation & propulsion.
Inspiring young minds through play ignites their body into purposeful, functional movements that lead onto strong, confident swimming & a positive child-lead relationship with water. Zara started her training in May 2006 after starting classes with her first son in 2005.
Trained through the STA (Swimming Teachers Association), Birthlight and the Shaw Method (artofswimming.com) means there is a wide view on techniques & methods that can be adapted to suit the individual & group on a bespoke basis.
Zara was the first teacher to qualify in the new ‘STA Level 3 Diploma in Infant Aquatics’ in 2017 – the highest recognised & accredited qualification available in the UK. As an ‘STA Baby & Pre-School Tutor’ Zara trains & mentors others to become swim teachers.
Zara is also a Rhythmic Movement Therapist working with children & adults who have retained reflexes – something that came about through teaching swimming & witnessing the impact that mind-body connection challenges can have in & out of the water.
The reflex work is combined with water based therapy to help identify, guide & aid young babies to resolve held stories occurring from pre-natal & birth challenges.
The next new term will be starting in September 2021.

Review in association with Facebook & Google
We have been swimming since our little one was 10 weeks and is now 3.5years old. We cannot praise Little Turtles enough. Small groups, nice pools, lovely staff, and great knowledge. Everything is at the children’s pace and there is a reason for all the activities. Lessons are really fun with different themes each week and it is so good to be learning an amazing life skill. We also find it to be so lovely bonding wise as you are so close and lots of cuddles and when older it is lovely chatting about the lesson. We love little Turtles and are always recommending to others on facebook in local groups etc. It is amazing to see how well our 3 year old can now swim and the fun and confidence it has bought her!
