Water Babies Bristol, Bath and North Somerset

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 Bristol, Bath & North Somerset are run by Bryony Johnstone, who is proud of the fact that she became the first-ever official Water Babies franchisee when she left behind the corporate world of retail marketing and opened her doors in Bristol in 2003. Since then she’s gone from strength to strength and she and her team now teach more than 1,200 babies and toddlers across the region every week!

The wonderfully enthusiastic Vicky, Philippa, Catherine and Stevie are the friendly voices in the office, while a team of highly qualified teachers - Jane, Jackie, Faye, Rowan, Rachel, Vickie, Bex, Amanda, Jenny, Jenna, Katie and Sara – completes 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 (Bristol), or join their Facebook Group where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.

Limited Places left to join our Spring Term!

We now have limited places left in our Spring Term, so if you would like to join us and give your little one water confidence and important safety skills ahead of the Summer sun (fingers crossed!), you can get in touch today by calling 0117 946 6919 or emailing underwater@waterbabies.co.uk

We swim in lovely pools across Bristol, Bath, Weston-Super-Mare and North Somerset, teaching a progressive programme for babies and toddlers from birth to around 4 years old.

Our programme is continuous, moving from term to term as your child progresses. We generally swim in-line with local school holidays, with each term usually beginning in September, November, February and May.

All Water Babies lessons are 30 minutes long and our Chapter 1 courses include a spot on our lovely underwater photoshoot at the end of the term, as well as a magical journey book, in which you can record your baby's achievements. Our teachers are highly qualified baby swimming teachers, each holding a Diploma qualification from Swim England – the only ones in the industry in fact!

 

Would you like to teach your baby or toddler to swim and give them the precious gift of water confidence?

If you would like to join us, here are 2 easy ways to make sure you don't miss out.

1) Go to our website www.waterbabies.co.uk, pop in your postcode and it will bring up all the pools in your area on a really handy map. Simply click on the pool you would like to swim at and then click 'ask about classes' to fill in your contact details.

2) Phone the office on 0117 946 6919

Once you are on our contact list we will then send you the timetable of classes and term date information ahead of the term following your due date, or the term you have specified an interest in if different.

You will then get first dibs on the newly released spaces!

Chapter 1 Short/Taster Courses!

We will soon be advertising our slightly shorter Taster Term classes for babies, so don’t forget to register with us if you’d like to receive the timetable as soon as it is released – spaces are always limited for these courses and are in very high demand, so registering is really important if you hope to snap up a space for your little one.

Did you know? 

All of the products used in our classes can be purchased from the Water Babies shop, from the #AwardWinning Bath Books to Bubba Onesies and the essential Happy Nappies! You can browse the shop by clicking here, and you can then order via the online shop itself or by calling the office on 0117 946 6919.

Do you know of a suitable pool for our lessons?

We are always on the lookout for new venues! So if you know of a swimming pool that you think would be a great addition to your local Water Babies classes then please let us know and we will give them a call! The pool could be in a school, hotel, leisure centre or maybe even in a private house or holiday park!

Film Debut! 

Check out the footage on this film. We were asked to do some filming for a small Indie film and were overwhelmed and so proud of how good the babies were - follow the link below to see the clip.
