Baby swimming classes with Aqua Babies

Aqua Babies classes have developed over 20 years. In this time we have focussed and specialised in this amazing age group in the water!

Teaching swimming since 1999

Relax in our extra warm pools and feel your water confidence developing together. We will begin with gentle exercises from water pouring to amazing underwater swims and safety skills.

Each level has gentle progression taught through both play and structured instruction as well as lots of songs along the way.

Experience Our Baby Swimming Courses

Parents and babies can begin our baby swim lessons just as soon as you feel ready and are comfortable to come and join us.

We have no lower age limit and we have had babies take their first dip when they are only two weeks old!  Even the smallest babies will be relaxed in one of our warm water pools.

Philippa Allen with Grace

I think Aqua Babies is a wonderful swimming class for young children and my daughter has definitely benefited and have recommended Aqua Babies to all my friends.

Ruth Ryan – Mother to Isobel Wells

Helen has been brilliant with my daughter. I am totally delighted with the results we have achieved in the last two terms!

Charlotte Wedd with Pre-schooler Gizelle

I have had Sue teach throughout for both boys and think she is excellent at what she does and more importantly my children respond well and really like her.  I have nothing but praise for the classes I have been attending.
