Water Babies is the UK's leading baby swim school, teaching a core skill to hundreds of babies & children every week which can potentially save their life.  You’ll find a Water Babies course is very different to traditional swimming lessons.  For a start, because we only use warm water pools, babies can join us from birth. And while the emphasis is on having fun, our course is carefully structured, with progressive lesson plans for each week. Fully qualified instructors work incredibly hard to enhance this magical experience.  With a core philosophy of teaching you to teach your baby to swim, we’ll always explain why we’re doing everything, as well as carefully demonstrate exactly what to do.
