Meet Jo

Hi, I’m Jo Walker Wilton, founder and lead instructor for Tiddlers Swim School which provides professional swimming lessons from babies through to adults old at Smithills Pool, Turton Pool and The Jubilee Pool all in Bolton, Lancashire. 

I have been teaching swimming for 29 years, starting out at Bolton Council, teaching at most of the pools throughout Bolton from nurseries, school swimming, adult lessons, special needs groups (including supporting deaf swimmers via BSL), aqua-fit and evening and weekend swimming sessions. I hold a current First Aid including Paediatric qualification and I am a Trainer Assessor for NPLQ and NRASTC. 

In addition, I have experience in signing and a special needs background with extensive experience of teaching deaf children and special needs children.

Our lessons follow the SwimEngland (formally the ASA) recognised swim programme. Your child will be able to earn distance badges and achievement badges as they move through the stages (badges are available for a small cost).
