Swimming lessons in English in Voorschoten

Make the most of your time with your children and learn to swim together in our family swimming lessons in Voorschoten!   These English language swimming classes are also suitable for teenagers and older children, who prefer not to learn with young kids.

Swimming is a skill that everyone can learn, at their own pace and in comfort and security.  When living in The Netherlands, it is so important to feel safe in the water, for everyone.  Swimming opens up a whole world of possibility to enjoy the best of South Holland.   Lakes, beaches, boating, water sports, school trips and of course, all the wonderful indoor pools; you can enjoy all of these with your family once you have the confidence in the water.

Join our small group classes on Sunday mornings where we teach in English language in a deep water pool in Voorschoten, in Zwembad Het Wedde, very close to the British Senior School.   Lessons are taught in very small groups and last for 45 minutes.    We have no waiting lists, so you can get started right away!   If you are located closer to The Hague, we also offer family swimming lessons in the Overbosch pool, close to the British School Vlaskamp.

Kids and parents swim at same time but in separate groups. The level in Voorschoten is for more advanced learners who are already comfortable with floating in water, and for those seeking ABC diplomas, the aim of which is to be completely safe in the water in all situations.  Contact us to find out if this level suits you or you can learn more about our swimming level progression here.

If you are not yet ready for the deep water pool then we also prepare parents and children in Zoeterwoude in the shallow water first.  Zoeterwoude is located 15 minutes by car from Voorschoten.    You can take beginners lessons here until you are ready for the deeper water.   We can also offer private lessons for a very personal and fast progression.  Kids are also welcome to join our kids only classes in Zoeterwoude if preferred.

Use our Lessons Finder to find the perfect lesson for you!  You can filter to South Holland to see all of our available classes in this area.  Filter to Family Lessons if you are looking to learn together with your children.

    Hi everyone! I started as an assistant teacher more than 10 years ago, while collecting all kinds of swimming diplomas meanwhile. This is where I found my passion for teaching children of every age range so I had got my qualification to become a teacher myself.

    Later on I gained a Master’s Degree in Pedagogical Science. This study is all about the progress of parenting and educating while interacting with the (disturbed) development of children and adolescents in their own environment.

    “I love to teach swimming skills to children and adults so much because, it gives these people more confidence. In and outside the pool!”
