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 firstname.lastname@example.org or visit:
