We’ve completely redefined our safety procedures to provide the utmost level of care and consideration for all of our swimmers. If you were swimming with us when classes were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ll contact you automatically once we have a date to reopen your pool.
Here are some of the changes you can expect from your classes with us.
All Water Babies staff are fully trained and equipped to carry out our new cleaning and safety measures to the highest standard. Rest assured, you’ll still receive the warmest of welcomes while we ensure your journey with us is as safe as possible. Below are some examples of how we've prepared for your arrival:
Your Water Babies class might look a little different when you return to swim with us. Each step of your journey has been thought about to ensure you can always maintain social distancing. We will also control class numbers to make sure it never gets too busy.
All of our locations will undergo deep cleaning procedures with industry standard anti-viral disinfectant. Our teams will also complete routine cleanings throughout the day to ensure that you and your little one can swim with confidence.
Whether we're in or out of the pool, your safety has and always will be our number one priority above all else. If we don't feel that it's safe to swim in your area yet, we won't. Rest assured, you can trust us to provide you the safest possible environment for helping your little one reach those all important milestones in their development.
Compared to non-swimmers, water babies are top of the class when it comes to cognitive development.
Griffith University of Queensland, Australia found that children that had swum as babies were...
Sleep, eat, exercise, repeat. Swimming helps regulate all of these essential activities.
Babies and toddlers who swim with us have...
We provide you with the perfect backdrop to support the bond between you and your little one.
They're only the best trained baby swim teachers in the world, fact.
Our teachers are really put through their paces. That's what makes them the best trained teachers in the world. They're the only ones that can achieve Swim England's Level 3 qualification, the highest that can be achieved.
Many of our teachers first get involved in the process because they've seen first-hand what happens in our lessons through being a customer. They've caught the bug, and truly care about giving other carers and their babies the same amazing experience that they had.
Our classes will teach your little one how to save themselves if they're ever in trouble.
Drowning is the second highest cause of accidental death among children in Ireland. That's why we'll teach your little one to get to the side, hold on and get out.
We hope it never comes to it, but one day that skill might save their life.
"the skills he learned saved his life when he fell off of a pontoon at the age of 2"
"I took my little boy to Water Babies when he was 3 months old so that he wouldn't have the same fear of swimming that I had from traumatic lessons at school. We loved it and the skills he learnt saved his life when he fell off a pontoon at the age of 2 without a life jacket.
Rather than panicking when he fell into the water, his Water Babies training allowed him to calmly swim to the side, hold on and pull himself out." Jennie, Devon
