What Our Customers Think

We love our Floaties lessons!

"Thursday’s Floaties swimming lessons are the highlight of our week. 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.
