Water Babies Hampshire

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 Hampshire are run by Clare Davies, who's always loved being in the water – particularly swimming underneath! So when friends recommended she take her son Josh along to Water Babies when he was just 4 months old, she didn’t hesitate. She knew immediately that she’d found something really special, and less than 12 months after first dipping her toe in the water she found herself teaching her very own Water Babies classes.

Although she trained and worked as an Accountant for many years, Clare says that she always felt like she was searching for her true vocation in life – and finally found it at Water Babies!

‘Seeing the looks of amazement and pride on parents’ faces when they see what their babies can do in the water is absolutely priceless,’ says Clare. ‘And as a mum, knowing that your little one has the core life skill of water confidence does give you peace of mind. Although my younger son, Charlie, went through a bit of a wobbly stage in the water, he’s now come out the other side and absolutely loves it. He and his brother are true water babies!’

The wonderfully enthusiastic Nikki, Jo, Isla, Emily and Mandy are the friendly voices in the office, while her team of highly qualified teachers completes the Water Babies crew! They’d love to hear from you, so why not give them a call? Or check out the banter on the Water Babies Hampshire Facebook page.

Older Babies and Toddlers
We can get you and your little one swimming regardless of experience!

So, if your little one is older than 12 months no problem! We have classes running every day of the week across Winchester, Southampton, Whitely and on the Isle of Wight. We keep swimming up to around the age of 4.5 - 5 years when our swimmers are confident to move to mainstream classes without your support in the water (just from poolside!)

If you would like to book a place in one of our award winning classes or would just like some more information then there are lots of ways to get in touch in or outside of office hours.....
