Baby swimming with Water Babies is an exciting, enriching experience for both you and your little one. Not only does it teach vital life skills, but it also enhances the way babies and toddlers learn other skills, too. We always incorporate lots of bonding, fun and socialising, so you can be sure that a Water Baby is a happy baby!
All our swimmers receive a Magical Water Babies Storybook when they book onto one of our courses, which is full of fantastic stickers for you to complete with your little fishy as you go through your Water Babies journey. At the end of every chapter you will also receive a badge!
