Nurturing a love of swimming from the very first splash!

View pages in this section

SWIMMING is one of the most AMAZING experiences you can share with your baby!

Babies have a real affinity with water, having spent nine months in the womb, they can be taken swimming from birth, and don’t need to have completed their injections (we follow NHS guidlines). From a young age babies love the freedom, massage and gentle exercise that the water offers.                                                                                                                                                               

The benefits to both parent and baby of swimming together are immense:

💙Plenty of eye contact

💙Plenty of skin to skin – it’s a wonderful way to bond with your baby

💙Helping you and your baby feel relaxed and confident in the water

💙Socially stimulating and fun activity for both you and your baby!

💙Parents who can’t swim can enjoy relaxing in the water with their baby

💙Babies learn the importance of water safety, including personal survival. These are invaluable skills to develop at such a young age and will instil a confidence and respect for the water that will last a lifetime.

💙Children we teach can often swim over 10 metres before they start school.

What Our Customers Think


"We are 5 lessons in and already I can see Alex is more confident in the water (and I feel so much more confident handling him too!). I highly recommend it to any new mum! They grow so quickly, this is prime mummy and baby bonding time, not to be missed." Carol, mum to baby Alex
