    Great- thanks for all the replies- I'll definitely give the SCAA a go- had forgotten about it even though I used to be a member!And YMCA is useful to know about as well as Harry Wright- I'll sign us up for one of those to start in a couple of months.

    Harry Wright has a new term starting at SCAA in the first week of March. I've got the forms all printed for me to enroll too ;)

    Hi Nicolejoy, isn't SCAA only for members ?

    yes but anyone can become a member for something like $100 per adult and $50 per child for a year, so when you add that to the lesson fees, it's really insignificant. I like that we can go to the same pool any time if we want to (unlike the lessons that are held at schools). I also like that the classes are soooo close to me (I'm in North Point) rather than on the south or west of the island. Although the SCAA doesn't have any Saturday classes so they don't suit working mothers as well. Most of the working mothers I know go to the other places so they can have their class on the weekend.

    Don't know how much truth this holds but something to consider...

    Nicolejoy, maybe we'll see you and your little one at swimming lessons then. How old is yours? I'm in Quarry Bay- do you know of any mum&baby groups in our area?

    Just a word of warning. Babies under 6 months are prone to ear infections and therefore swimming in local pools is not really recommended.

    My daughter is now 15 months - so we could be in the same class. I sometimes go to a playgroup at a friend's house in Taikoo Shing on Monday afternoons, and I met another friend through swimming who happens to live in the same estate as me - but apart from that, I don't know many mums and bubs around here.
