Water Babies

A magical journey

Water Babies magic has been shared by families across Bristol, Bath and North Somerset since 2003. Our classes are innovative, gentle, dynamic, flexible, bonding and most of all, fun, taking you and your little one on a special journey from first splash to early swimming.

Why swim?

Swimming is a vital life-saving skill. More than that, 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.

Why Water Babies?

You can teach your baby to swim, and we’d like to show you how. Our swimming journey takes your baby from early newborn reflexes right up until they’re 4 years old and are able to swim short distances and ready to start learning strokes independently. You’ll learn underwater and surface swimming, water safety, confidence, games and songs in a safe, fun-filled environment.

Joining the same group for 10 week-long chapters, you’ll develop friendships as well as gently progressing swimming skills. Your lessons will be led by an experienced teacher will energy, enthusiasm, patience, knowledge and sparkle, plus the country’s highest swimming teaching qualification and paediatric life-saving.

You’ll also get:

• Flexible lesson times during the week or weekend, daytime or evenings so babies can choose who they bring swimming!

• A keepsake book with stickers and sew-on badges

• The chance to come to an underwater photo shoot

• Treats and money-saving vouchers… and much more!

Come on in

Each Chapter builds on the last, made up of 10 weekly half-hour lessons costing £165. We offer classes across Bristol, Bath and Weston-Super-Mare 7 days a week.
