Water Babies has an outstanding reputation as the world's biggest most professional baby- and toddler-swimming programme. We welcome around 30000 children (and their parents/carers) into warm water at over 560 local pools every week. Our sessions progressively develop children's water skills in line with their physical mental and emotional development phases. Learning to get to the side hold on or swim from a young age has saved several Water Babies' lives after they have fallen into water elsewhere. We also offer once-in-a-lifetime high-resolution underwater photography and an online shop featuring delightful practical swimming accessories. Courses start in Sept Nov Feb and May.
