Children need a different approach
As a PADI Approved Youth Training Centre, Dive Academy is well placed to look after your children as they complete scuba diving experiences and courses.
Since we opened in 2016, we've had a lot of experience teaching children in our heated pool at Lufton (Yeovil), or more recently at Leweston School just south of Sherborne where our Seal Team and Master Seal programmes take place.
All staff are first aid trained and DBS checked. A full child protection policy is in place and our child safeguarding lead is Louise who is happy to chat about our policies and processes at any time.
Children aged 8-9 years can start with Bubblemaker, or go straight to PADI Seal Team
Children aged 10-11 should start with a beginner lesson, but will likely benefit from PADI Seal Team before going on to PADI Open Water Diver
Children aged 12-14 can complete PADI Open Water Diver, but we recommend a beginner lesson first
