Water Babies runs fun, innovative baby swimming classes across Midshires. Our fully qualified instructors are world class and could have trained as private pilots – three times over – in the time it takes them to qualify with us. With a multi-award winning programme which teaches vital water confidence and safety skills from birth, our overall aim is to teach you to teach your baby to swim. So we’ll always explain why we’re doing everything, as well as carefully demonstrate exactly what to do.
Through carefully structured training, babies can be taught life saving skills such as turning onto their backs or, following a sudden submersion, swimming to the nearest solid object. They grow familiar with what it feels like to fall into water, so that should they ever accidentally fall in they are far less likely to panic and drown. And our results speak for themselves. In the last three years alone, at least ten of our tiny clients have saved their own lives as a result of the skills they learnt at Water Babies – and five of them were just two years old at the time. Water Babies has the only baby/toddler swim programme that is accredited by the ASA (the Amateur Swimming Association) and which links directly to the National Plan for Teaching Swimming. Our teachers have either achieved or are working towards the brand new ASA Diploma in Pre-fundamentals in Baby Swimming.
Water Babies classes run in Aylesbury, Hemel Hempstead, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Buckingham, Banbury, Towcester, Brackley, Coventry, Brandon, Kennilworth, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Meriden. We can’t wait to hear from you so for further details please call 01295 709221 or email email@example.com or visit:
The children's time with Little Ruggers will give them both personal and sports skills they need to have a happy and life long love and enjoyment of sports as confident children to confident adults.
The goal of Little Ruggers is to draw more children into sports through these classes to encourage a healthy lifestyle, which we believe should ideally be instilled at a young age. Little Ruggers is a non contact play programme. Specifically designed using the transferable skills of Rugby to create a fun and enjoyable environment whilst developing basic core motor skills and confidence.
As children move from being infants to toddlers they become more self sufficient, wanting to explore and affirm their independence. We encourage this by the way our sessions are structured so they are stimulating and exciting. Through a range of fun activities children will develop better hand to eye co-ordination, balance and agility and that in turn helps social development through the promotion of self esteem.
Little Ruggers classes are fully insured and run by an experienced and qualified coaches and assistant coaches depending on numbers in a class. Coaches are trained in paediatric first aid and have enhanced CRB checked.
PARTIES: Make your child's birthday a day to remember with a Little Ruggers Party! We will take care of your children’s party so you can relax and enjoy the day. See our website for full details of packages available.
Location: Rugby coaching for toddlers and young children held in Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire
