Swimming is a vital life-saving skill. It helps babies develop strength, co-ordination and social skills, gives special bonding-time and builds healthy exercise habits that your whole family can enjoy.

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, in fun-filled, warm class.
You 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.

    I was so excited to hear all the rave reviews about waterbabies that I had my first daughters name on the waiting list before she was even born. The classes at Church Farm, near Bath didn't disappoint. The special uninterrupted bonding time we had was like no other, I loved the skin to skin contact, songs and I was totally in awe of my young baby kicking and swimming freely towards me. The way that she progressed through our waterbabies journey until she was nearly 4 was just amazing! Meanwhile I started waterbabies with my second baby and have only finished a few months ago. 6 years from when we started and I am still really good friends with many of the parents in our swimming groups and our children still play together. I can honestly say in that 6 year period every single lesson we went to was fun, professionally taught and each week felt that we were learning something new. The instructors put each little one at the centre of their planning and it always felt as though we had plenty of 1:1 attention. I am so grateful to that special time we had together and that my two girls have developed a life long love of swimming and have brilliant safety skills around water. I know I will cherish these memories forever and continue to enjoy our special family time in the water.
