What our Members are saying

We couldn't have asked for a better start to swimming and water safety for both of our girls.  The skills you have given them is obvious when it comes to lessons through school, with both being placed in the top group for their age group.  We frequently talk to others about the positives of Bumble Bees - The friendly staff, family type atmosphere, small class sizes, warm pool and close location.We love the fact that the children can't touch the bottom of the pool and have to prove their proficiency and confidence before mum and dad hop out.  We leave with wonderful memories, new friends and with heavy hearts.
