Swim School at Tenderlinks
At Tenderlinks Norbury, as an extra curricular activity, we offer the children swimming lessons, as we are situated within the Nuffield Well Being Centre this is offered at a reduced price.
We have professional instructors who run half an hour sessions in the pool.
Your child will be with a group of four children and one instructor in the pool. There will be staff who will be at pool side to supervise the children at all times.
The swim School runs term time only and payment is made in full at beginning of term.
At the end of term children are awarded certificates depending on their achievement.
Swim school is run by ‘Swim England Standards’ and followed by the framework ‘Learn to Swim’. For the nursery age children they go through Ducklings stages 1 to 4.
Kindergarden is an exciting outdoor education program created to encourage Early Years children to enhance, interact with and take ownership of the green spaces that they inhabit. Kindergarden workshops take place in a school’s garden or playground and run twelve months a year, rain or shine.
The programme is divided into four seasonally themed modules, each exploring the world of gardens and the many fascinating living things that occupy them. Weekly workshops are filled with practical gardening activities, story telling, drama and art. Through these varied learning mediums Kindergarden pupils are able to absorb challenging academic content, expand vocabulary, develop fine motor skills, whilst engendering an appreciation of the living world around them.
Pedro has a Masters degree in PE and 10 years experience as a sports coach and teacher. He spends part of his week planning and delivering multi-sports sessions in Nurseries and schools around South West London. Sessions take place in our local Park or in our outdoor spaces. The weekly sessions include ball skills, racket skills and athletics for toddlers and incorporate other learning such as colour names and counting.

Hello, my name is Zahida and I am the Nursery Manager and DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead). My experience has always been in Early Years Education and I am passionate that every child reaches their full potential and ready for the next transition to school.
I believe children thrive in an enabling environment which nurtures independence, self-esteem and self-confidence.
I support my team to seek windows of opportunities to broaden and extend on children’s existing skills and capabilities for starting a lifelong love of learning to discover the wonders of the world together.
