“Hello Ladies! just wanted to share my story with other parents with 3-5 yr olds on how amazing Finley has come on since attending your crash course for beginners..what a difference...before he was starting to use a float and go under the watering can etc... and now he swims with one float confidently with his head in the water holding his breath nearly the full width. ..he jumps in the water with no help and is not frightened to go right under and he managed half a width swimming properly on his own completely unaided, he is also now going under the water to retrieve rings and objects …. And he learnt all that in just under 4 mornings with you! He is now on the first morning of his second crash course for 4 days and the confidence in him is unbelievable …… Laura, Maxine and Becky you really are fantastic and I cant believe how far he has come on ….your crash courses are a fantastic opportunity for children to become more familiar with the water and confident and £20 for 4 x 45 min lessons is a bargain …… thank you very much I am one very proud mummy that can’t wait to see what he will achieve by the end of the week!! Aqua Stars rocks!!!” Carly Byott
