Water Babies

Water Babies are the UK's leading baby swim school and have been running classes across Sheffield for the past eight years. Babies need to be under 1 year old to join the beginner's classes but can then swim with us to around the age of 4.

The multi award-winning Water Babies course teaches using voice commands, and learning to respond to these is excellent for your baby's mental development. Lessons last half an hour and, despite looking very gentle, provide a complete physical work out. Swimming is also excellent for enhancing the bond between the parent and child. And, with a clear emphasis on having fun, lessons are extremely sociable and a great way of making new friends.

We now have a full class of beginners swimming at Todwick Junior School at 10.00 am on Fridays. We will start a new term in September 2010 and are currently taking bookings for babies under 1 year old to join a beginner's class. This would be at 10.30 am on Friday and will run in school term times.

We have had some interest in a toddler class for children over 1 year old (and under 4) who have not previously had swimming lessons. If you are interested please call us. If we get enough interest then we will also commence a toddler class on Friday mornings in school term times.

One parent must be in the pool with each child at lessons but parents do not need to be confident swimmers.

Classes are also held in Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster and Lincoln.
