Splash in with Water Babies!

Splash in with Water Babies! 

What we’ll teach you 

We’ll teach you to teach your baby to swim. From lesson one, we’ll get your little one used to the sensation of the water, developing their natural instincts, and transforming these into core aquatic skills. By the end of our progressive programme, your little one will be swimming freely using different strokes and be able to keep themselves safe in and around the water.

We work closely with Swim England, the national governing body for swimming and we’ve woven their learn to swim framework through our programme. So, you’ll be simply amazed at the progress they make. Not only will they be able to swim independently and have learnt a skill for life – they will also have grown in confidence too.

How our lessons work 

Our lessons are intimate, with a maximum of 10 little ones, their carer and one of our teachers in the pool at any one time. They’re 30 minutes long and take place each week, it’s a wonderful way to bond with your baby away from the craziness of life. Skills are taught through song, play and repetition, so there’s never a dull moment when you’re in the pool. Our teachers tailor each lesson to your little one’s ability, so they can progress at their own pace.

What makes our teachers special? 

Our baby swimming teachers are the most qualified in the world! We’ve partnered with Swim England to develop our exclusive training program, allowing us to award our instructors with Swim England’s highest certification. Your child will be in the safest, most experienced hands.
