Movin Monkeez specialises in keeping your ‘Monkeez’ moving! They will be well and truly tired out after one of our sessions! Classes are aimed at those from toddling – 4 years of age!
Movin Monkeez introduces fitness and dance to pre-school children and compliments the Early Years Foundation Stage offering fitness, co-ordination, structure and above all fun for your little ones. Children will learn the basics of fitness, dance, rhythm and movement in a fun and safe environment.
We focus on using props such as scarves, balls, beanbags, instruments, balancing equipment, parachutes and many more. The children explore different movement exercises to fun and stimulating music along with working in groups and pairs and most importantly are ‘on the go’ for the entire lesson.
Current locaions: Basingstoke, Bromsgrove, Herefordshire, Oxfordshire, Renfrewshire, Southampton East, Winchester and Southampton West.
Using our tried and tested techniques and our very progressive structured plans, children go on to swim independently much earlier than they may have done in other lessons. Training for instructors begins with them achieving their STA or ASA full teachers. Our in-house tutors then deliver a challenging but comprehensive 5 day training programme that includes the STA Baby & Pre-School qualification. Instructors will go on to teach all levels from birth to competitive swimming covering the National and International Plan for Teaching Swimming. Continued professional development is important and Instructors attend CPD seminars annually in addition to be regularly assessed.
Our lessons can tend to be more expensive than a lot of other swimming lessons but parents who participate in our lessons tell us they are worth every penny. We invest heavily in training only the best instructors to teach your little ones and the pools we use are carefully selected for their suitably to ensure your baby’s comfort safety and enjoyment. We love what we do and the way we do it shows we are totally committed to making your time with us memorable.
We also offer wheelchair skills training, advice and information and campaign to raise awareness of disabled young people's needs. Many of those we help become members of our Kidz Board, acting as our ambassadors and getting involved in projects and events.
Through this support Whizz-Kidz has given nearly 4,000 disabled children and young people the chance to enjoy an independent life at home, at school and at play.

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.
