Laura Sevenus, Chalfont St. Giles

At Laura Sevenus Swimming Tuition we believe that every child and baby is unique and that the natural ability to swim is inherent in each one. We aim to provide a safe, clean, caring and nurturing environment where each child is encouraged to explore and in so doing, their innate response to swim is naturally awakened. The Sevenus Swimming Method teachers youngsters to love the water, respect it, to overcome any fear and become completely confident in it!

We are a family run business, supported by a great team. Proof of the success of our method is best described by one of our parents as “… happy children who leap joyously and swim strongly while their parents watch with confidence.”
