Winner in the 2019 Hoop Awards

Our Award - Winning Baby swim school teaches you to teach your baby to swim, with classes suitable from birth. The skills we teach could enable your baby to save their own life if they fall into water - its amazing how many of our Mums and Dads email in after a slip or fall on holiday. Whats more baby swimming builds muscles, aids bonding, and develops their brains too, not to mention those lovely sleeps after lessons! Classes take place in warm water pools 7 days a week, with all instructors qualified swim teachers holding a specialist baby swimming diploma

Meet the Team

Anna
Teacher

Anna is a huge fan of baby swimming, having brought her daughter Amelie along to lessons and quickly discovering it was her favourite part of the week. When the chance came to step away from running her own business to teach she leapt at the chance, and her psychology degree has come in super handy to cajole toddlers into having fun! Anna also teaches mainstream swimming for MXT so has your whole swim journey sorted :-)

Bronwyn
Senior Teacher

Originally from South Africa, swimming was a way of life from a very early age, including a minor brush with a shark! Bronwyn fell in love with baby swimming when she first took Ayla to lessons, and the rest is history! Bron's lessons are great fun, but the one thing that comes across every time is just how much she treasures each & every swimmer and the journey they have - after all every baby is unique!

Emma
Teacher

Emma started teaching for Water babies Hampshire 8 years ago, discovering how much she loved baby swimming when she brought her oldest along to lessons - fast forward through another 2 gorgeous boys and Emma has seen our programme through many developments and changes and still utterly loves teaching. She has also spent time as a baby and children's yoga teacher, so she is an expert at navigating toddler mindsets, and having started learning circus skills her lessons are great fun and incorporate core strength skills too.

Gina
Teacher

Growing up in South Africa means swimming is a way of life for Gina, she learnt to swim as a baby before joining the swim club age 6 and competing all through school. Mum to 3 gorgeous Mermaids herself, Gina's lessons are great fun & the babies adore her.

Juliet
Teacher

Juliet has been teaching mainstream swimming for years, so we were hugely proud when she contacted Water Babies and wanted to add baby swimming to her accomplishments. As coach and chief supporter to Lenny, aged 12, who is competing at county level & trying out for national, Juliet has seen exactly where baby swimming can lead to, and her nurturing manner means she has a legion of fans!

Juliet
Baby Swim Instructor

Juliet has been teaching mainstream swimming & coaching for years, so we were delighted when she approached Water Babies and asked to specialise in baby swimming. Juliet is known for a patience & her supportive, caring approach means she is well loved amongst all her swimmers!

Lydia
Teacher

Lydia's background is actually as a gymnastics coach, and some of her previous gymnasts have gone on to represent their country. Lydia fell in love with baby swimming when she brought little Reuben along to lessons, and it seemed the perfect career for her to combine her love of coaching with smiley babies - we've seen lots of potential synchronised swimmers graduate Water babies after Lydia's expert tuition! Lydia still swims with Reuben in Water babies, and now Sienna has come along she gets double the fun alongside teaching her own crew!

Mel
Teacher

Having swum all her life & taken little ones to lessons whilst nannying, it was no wonder Mel had her eldest child booked into lessons as soon as he was born! Mel has been teaching for a number of years and has 2 children who have had very different journeys through swimming, as a result she really understands what your little one needs in class.

Toni
Teacher

Toni had been teaching mainstream swimming a wee while when she decided she wanted to specialise in Baby swimming, and we were delighted when she joined us 3 years ago! Toni is Mum to Harrison & Albert, and alongside Water Babies still teaches the older ones with another swim school, so knows exactly how to progress them. Toni also teaches aquanatal classes

Vicki
Senior Teacher

Vicki became a fan of water later in life, having brought her daughter to lessons to ensure Chloe never shared her fear of water. Fast forward 8 years & Vicki had not only overcome her fear, but re-trained as an instructor and moved down to Brighton to start lessons of her own, and added an extra baby to the mix ;-) Vicki absolutely loves her new life teaching swimming, but especially loves helping other nervous Mums & Dads
