Runner-Up in the 2019 Hoop Awards

Merbabies classes teach life saving skills, water confidence and build the foundations for early swimming, through a gentle yet dynamic learn to swim programme. Our ethos is teach with love, learn through play and this is central to everything that we do, and HOW we do it. Children are encouraged to play, explore and enjoy the pool, through creative and imaginative lessons, using toys, songs, games and sensory play. We use the STA Baby to Preschool Learm to Swim programme, a progressive set of awards with clear skills, designed for baby to preschool age to complete.

The changing rooms at the Novotel are not great. Way too small, cramped and only a few lockers. There were 3 changing mats on the floor which covered the only area to stand. The door was propped open with a towel, my little one ran out and slipped. The pool is lovely and warm and the lesson and teachers are great. I’ll be going again but changing venues.

Anna Payne
Company Owner & Swim Teacher

Hi, I'm Anna, I run Merbabies and am Mum to two small children. I started Merbabies in February 2017 whilst on maternity leave. I wanted to create something really special, offering gentle baby led swim classes, focused on learning through play and with a holistic approach to overall development, happiness and well being as I believe this is the most enjoyable and effective way for babies and young children to learn. Our ethos of teach with love, learn through play is at the centre of all that we do and we look forward to welcoming you and your little one to the pool very soon. Anna x
