Water Babies Brighton and Mid Sussex

Baby swimming with Water Babies is an exciting, enriching experience for both you and your little one. Not only does it teach vital life skills, but it also enhances the way babies and toddlers learn other skills, too. No one else reaches our high standards of professionalism, and no one else works harder to make sure you and your little one feel happy and safe. And we always incorporate lots of bonding, fun and socialising, so you can be sure that a Water Baby is a happy baby!

Classes across Brighton & Mid Sussex are run by Vicki Steven; though with a degree in criminology & criminal justice, an early ambition to be the next ‘Cracker’ and a sideline in cake-baking, you may wonder what brings her to Water Babies!

Vicki first got hooked several years ago when she started taking daughter, Chloe, to lessons. “I was petrified of water while I was growing up, and didn’t learn to swim until later in life,” she recalls, “so I was determined not to pass my fears on to Chloe. My husband, Mike, is a keen triathlete and wanted Chloe to follow in his footsteps – so we started swimming when Chloe was 6 months old.”

A career in marketing was followed by working as business support manager for Water Babies in Berkshire for two years, which reinforced Vicki’s belief that she’d found her true vocation.

Her favourite thing has been watching Chloe’s progression. “I remember her first back-float and her 10m front crawl — both were equally amazing!” she smiles. “I’ve loved every second of my Water Babies journey so far, and I’m now loving spreading the magic across East Sussex.”

Vicki is delighted to have a great team of highly qualified teachers who complete the Water Babies crew – they’d love to hear from you, so why not give them a call? You can find them on Facebook at Water Babies (Brighton & Mid Sussex), where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.
