As well as teaching potentially lifesaving skills, baby swimming is the perfect exercise for little ones, since water allows muscles to move freely while being supported by its buoyancy. It also develops learning skills, boosts confidence, improves co-ordination and enhances wellbeing. And with NHS guidelines saying that babies don’t need to have had their vaccinations before they can swim, it’s the only structured activity you can do together from birth.
Since we opened our doors to our first water babies in 2002, we’ve taught over a quarter of a million babies and toddlers to swim, and we’ve scooped lots of awards for what we do. What’s more, Water Babies teachers are among the highest-trained baby swimming teachers in the world. So it’s safe to say that you and your little one will be in the best possible hands with us.
Through our carefully structured training, babies grow familiar with what it feels like to fall into water, so that should they ever accidentally fall in they are far less likely to panic and drown.
And our results speak for themselves: more than a dozen Water Babies have used their skills to survive after accidentally falling into water, even though they were very young at the time.
