Swim Lessons for

children aged 3-8 years old

Michelle's Swim Stars

Private and Group Swimming lessons for children available at Nairn Hydrotherapy pool.

We follow the STA Learn to Swim Criteria but at the same time we treat every child as an individual and it maybe that the goals set by the Learn to Swim criteria are not appropriate.  Each child therefore has their own individual goals.

Michelle is proud to be an Autism Swim certified teacher.

The Michelle's Swim Star's Approach

No one size fits all, we realise children are different and we work with parents to ensure everyone progresses in their swimming at their own pace.  Even setting their own individual goals.

Small Class Sizes - with teaching in the water.

Developmentally appropriate group classes.

Private 1-2-1 or small group classes available.


Water Safety is at the heart of our lessons.

Learn through play approach.

Toasty, warm pool.

Inclusive swim school

Schedule and Booking


Nairn Hydrotherapy Pool



  • The pool is fantastic for beginners as it is maintained at a toasty 32°C.

  • We have the pool to ourselves when classes are taught.

  • The pool is 7m in length, 4m in width and 1.2m depth, so is a good size for beginners to learn to swim and also to learn water safety.

  • ​Nairn Hydrotherapy Trust is a registered charity so you know that when you book you are donating a % of the cost to charity and to help run this fantastic pool which offers a number of services to the community. 
  • These include hydrotherapy sessions (either NHS referral or pool run self referral), non physio sessions, aquanatal, postnatal, water circuit training and massages.  In the holidays family sessions can also be booked.

My son's confidence in the water, since starting lessons with Michelle, has grown massively! She always puts the kids at ease and makes it enjoyable for everyone.


Michelle is a great instructor and my girls have learnt so much and are more confident in the pool.  Overall a lovely person.


My daughter progressed so quickly in only 8 months with Michelle, from having to use floats, to swimming front crawl with no aids.  Michelle always makes her classes fun and my daughter looks forward to them every week.
