Water Babies Bucks and Beds

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 Bucks & Beds are run byTamsin Brewis, who was so determined to start her baby Sydonie swimming, that for 9 months she commuted all the way from Milton Keynes to Wimbledon (63 miles each way!) for the 30-minute classes each week. Now that’s what we call keen!

The experience began Tamsin’s lifetime commitment to teaching swimming — so much so that for years, she spent precious Saturday mornings teaching at her local pool despite working full-time during the week. "All children should be able to swim," says Tamsin, "as it opens up so many opportunities for you and your family. My own children have gone on to qualify as divers at an early age and they started with the wonderful world of baby swiming."

Tamsin is now joined in the office by Claire, Abi, Emily and Jamie and in the pool by her fantastic team of teachers. They’d love to hear from you, so why not give them a call? Or check out the banter on the Water Babies Bucks and Beds Facebook page.

Our Lessons

Our programme is continuous, moving from term to term as your child progresses; our new classes normally begin in September, November, February and May - your little one can join us up and including week 3 of the term; This is why our new babies cannot start at any point in the classes as they will miss the earlier progressions.

We teach in the areas of Milton Keynes, Buckingham, Bedford, Banbury, Northampton, Luton, Dunstable, Hemel Hempstead and Aylesbury Our lessons are 30 minutes long and include attendance on our lovely underwater photoshoot and a magical journey book in which you can record your baby's achievements. Our teachers are the most qualified baby swimming teachers holding a Diploma qualification from Swim England - can you believe that?

We run baby swimming classes in the following areas:

Aylesbury, Milton Keynes, Banbury, Northampton, Bedford, Leighton Buzzard, Wendover, Hemel Hempstead, Dunstable, Luton and Buckingham,

Pool Information

We have a lovely new pool in the Luton area at Lady Zia Wernher School - Classes will be held on Saturday afternoons - do call for more information 01295 709221

Product information

We have also introduced some pool towels and robes - they are brilliant and they even have bubbles on them where you can sew your badges!

When you join us, we will ask that your baby wears a double nappy system You may also want a wetsuit or warm in one if your little one feels the cold! You may also like to consider a changing mat for the pool.

In Week 7 of your lessons, you will get the chance to go underwater with your baby so you may need some goggles - clear, easy to release ones work really well and they are worth wearing around your little one so they get used to seeing you in them!

All these products are available from your local office on 01295709221 or direct from our website

Top tip for you!

  • A tiny baby may need feeding prior to their lesson - this is not a problem and we are happy for yu to feed your baby 20 minutes prior to class. Once they are on solids, they should be fed at least 60 minutes before class.
  • Bring a hat for your baby, particularly in the winter months; babies loose heat through their heads so we need to keep them warm!
  • Bring a drink for your baby for after swimming - it's a great habit to get into.

Charity Work
The Splashathon figures are coming in  for Tommys, the Baby Charity and so far, we have raised over £37,000 locally which is totally amazing and could not have been done without such a supportive team of familes, children and teachers - thank you so much everyone. We will keep you updated, particularly with the competition prizes!  Nationally we have raised over £940,000 - this would allow Tommys to fund their miscarriage centre for 28 months allowing 56,000 couples to have the opportunity to have a baby - you will be making that happen!
 
In 2017 we will be sponsoring two children through our programme for a year each - if you would like to find out more check out https://kallikids.com/ - we would love to be able to give every child the opportunity to swim
