Water Babies


disabled access

Water Babies has an outstanding reputation as the world's biggest, most professional baby- and toddler-swimming programme. We welcome around 30,000 children (and their parents/carers) into warm water at over 560 local pools every week. Our sessions progressively develop children's water skills in line with their physical, mental and emotional development phases. Learning to get to the side, hold on or swim from a young age has saved several Water Babies' lives after they have fallen into water elsewhere. We also offer, once-in-a-lifetime high-resolution underwater photography and an online shop featuring delightful, practical swimming accessories.
Beginner courses for babies and toddlers run for 10 wks starting in Sept, Nov, Feb and May. Children with previous swimming experience may be able to join mid term.

    We started Water Babies with our dd when she was 3 months old. She is now 18 months old and LOVES swimming. We chose WB over other swimming schools because their lessons are not done public pools, which we liked the idea of. Also, some of their classes run on weekends which is perfect as my husband can take her, giving me a little bit of "me time". The babies progress through the different levels but are given plenty of opportunities to repeat and consolidate newly learned skills. Since we began, we have had 2 different teachers and I must admit there is a little variation in the quality of the teaching, although we have been pleased enough with both. The reason I did not give 5 stars is because of the cost which is a little more expensive than other swim schools, but we think it is worth the extra. Communication is very good and we receive a newsletter via emails regularly. WB is a very professional company and I would definitely recommend.
