Water Babies

Water Babies isn't the same as other swim schools.

Why Water Babies?

  • We take babies from birth and teach them in 'Chapters' right up until they're 4 years old. Most Water Babies are confidently swimming short distances by the time they're 2 ½ years old!
  • You'll learn underwater and surface swimming, water safety, confidence, games and songs in a safe, fun-filled, warm class.
  • You and your little swimmer will join the same group for 10 weeks at a time, developing friendships as well as gently progressing your swimming skills.
  • Your teacher will have more energy, enthusiasm, patience and sparkle than you could imagine, plus the country's highest swimming teaching qualification and paediatric life-saving!
  • You can choose from lessons during the week or weekend, daytime or evenings. We welcome mums, dads, grandparents - babies can choose who they bring swimming!

Come on in!

Each 'Chapter' builds on the last, and is generally made of 10 weekly half-hour lessons.
