WINNER: WATER BABIES
Water Babies has an outstanding reputation as the world’s biggest, most professional baby and toddler swimming programme, welcoming over 41,000 children (and their Water Babiesparents/carers) into warm water at around 560 local pools every week.
Their swimming lessons progressively develop children’s water skills in line with their physical, mental and emotional development phases. Learning to get to the side, hold on or swim from a young age has saved several Water Babies’ lives after they have fallen into water elsewhere.
Water Babies also offers world-class, once-in-a-lifetime high-resolution photography of babies and toddlers swimming underwater, and an online shop featuring delightful, practical swimming accessories.
Locations across Essex.
Highly Recommended: Miniswimming
Mini Swimming was born from a love of taking our own babies and children to swimming classes. We found that we and our children loved going to the lessons and enjoyed them above all of the other classes and groups we tried. We looked forward to the weekly sessions, missed them when they weren’t on and not only found that our children became confident swimmers but we also made some great friends along the way!
