The Best Cardiff Kids Clubs and Activities 2020
Turtle Tots Cardiff
With qualifications from 3 different swimming governing bodies (STA, ASA & Swim Ireland) I bring you Baby & Toddler classes of the highest quality.
At Turtle Tots, I’m passionate about promoting water safety & learn to swim skills through our child-led, unique, fun & Award Winning Baby & Toddler classes.
I’m a customer service focused company, and actively try to make sure I treat you as an individual, not another number as well as responding to your query in a fast manner. I will come to know everyone’s name & engage with you as an individual so everyone is comfortable & having fun.
Our classes in Cardiff are priced £13-15 (depending on Venue/Day) & our terms are typically 8-10 weeks long.
I’m different from the other swim schools in Cardiff in many ways including price, customer service & quality in our lessons. Having qualifications from 3 swim governing bodies, including a Diploma in Baby Swimming I’m the highest qualified swimming teacher in Cardiff.
Additionally I donate a percentage my profits to a local charity, the Intensive Care NeoNatal Unit in the UHW. Former patients are also entitled to a discount for their first term.
Most swim schools in Cardiff restrict the number of people in the pool, but I say why should mummy/daddy have all the fun? Watching your baby swim & learn how to be safe & enjoy the water is an amazing time in parenthood, so I don’t want one person to miss out!
Send me an email & see for yourself! Let’s bring on the smiles & start your little one’s swimming journey.

Learning a foreign language is a valuable part of every child’s education, so why not give your child a headstart with the chance to start learning French now? Learning a language in their earliest years helps children to grow in self-confidence and boosts their natural creativity.

Why not come along and see what fun Kidslingo Frenchtastic classes really are?

Jigsaw Performing Arts Cardiff
Jigsaw Cardiff offer drama, singing and dance classes for children aged 3-18 in Cardiff High School on Saturday mornings and Bishop of Llandaff CIW school on Saturday afternoons. Our classes are an excellent way to build confidence and social skills and are a huge amount of fun. With three terms throughout the year: spring, summer and autumn, there are plenty of opportunities for students to take to the stage with us.
Students are divided into age appropriate groups, ensuring that they receive the right level of focus and attention in drama, singing and dance. Our Little Ones are split into classes of 3-4 years and 5-6 years and take part in 90 minute sessions with a specialist performing arts tutor. Main School sessions are three hours in length and students are split into age groups of 7-8, 9-11 and 12+.
Every student can benefit from the performing arts. While some join us to build a firm foundation for a professional performance career, others do so to unlock their hidden talents, overcome their shyness or increase their confidence and social skills. What all students enjoy is having fun through drama, singing and dance classes, while making new friends.
