Water Babies Herefordshire and Worcestershire

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 Herefordshire & Worcestershire are run by Kat Morgan, a self-confessed real water baby! Swimming pretty much every day as a child, she was a swimming instructor throughout her college and university years. A degree in sports science was then followed by a slight change of direction when she pursued a career in corporate banking. But when she discovered Water Babies whilst pregnant with her daughter Poppy, Kat knew she’d finally found her calling!

“I was really moved by Poppy’s first lesson,” she recalls. “So much so that I started my training almost straight away, taught my first lesson 6 months later – and am now delighted to be at the helm of Water Babies in Worcester!”

Husband Scott is the friendly guy who’ll be meeting ’n greeting you at your first lesson, bringing the mobile ‘shop’ poolside, and helping out in the office. You will also find him meeting and greeting at the poolside and presenting your photographs at our magical termly underwater photo shoot.

“We love being Water Babies parents it has been a huge part of our lives since Poppy took to the water for the first time aged 4 months old. With the addition of Robyn to our family since we have owned the franchise it only seemed right that she started her journey as soon as she could”.

In fact Robyn’s first swimming lesson made the prefect birthday present for Scott back in April 2014 when they took to the water for the first time with Robyn aged just two days old. You couldn’t wipe the smile off Scott’s face and Robyn has grown into and extremely confident little swimmer.

Kat is joined in the pool by her crew of highly qualified teachers - Clare, Dawn, Imre, Emma, Kate, Kayleigh, Mel & Stacey. They’d love to hear from you, so why not give them a call? You can find them on Facebook at Water Babies (Herefordshire, Worcestershire & Stratford-Upon-Avon), where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.

Water Wobbles Help Line

If your little one seems to have suddenly ‘gone off’ their swimming this usually means your little one is going through the ‘Water Wobbles’ which links with a key stage in a child’s development which is when they start to become independent. We understand at this point you are frustrated and feel like giving up but please don’t!

*It’s time to call the Wobbles help line*

In our office we have the lovely Kat! She has many talents being a mum and all, but we have to say her water wobbles knowledge/experience is the best you can get around here. Kat has experienced Water Wobbles with her little girl Poppy for a number of months so has experienced it first hand and knows that there is light at the end of the tunnel! She can give you confidence and advice on how to cope.

To round it off if you feel like giving up please call the office on 01905 745505 and Kat or one of our lovely staff members can help you and even send you a booklet to give you advice if it helps!

We are very excited to be able to offer a gift voucher service. This could make the perfect present for a Baby Shower, Birthday, Christening or Christmas Present. Vouchers can be used toward the cost of our courses or spent on our amazing under water photography service.

Secret Life’s of Babies

Did you see all our wonderful clients featured in the ITV 1 Secret Life’s of Babies Documentary which aired on Tuesday 3rd June 2014. The film is well worth a watch and explores just how important those first two years of a child’s life really are.

It also features our very own Georgie Gibbs & Mummy Clare Telford along with many of her class mates & wonderful Franchisee/Instructor - Kat. All the water based filming took place at our fabulous Regency High School Pool at the end of February 2014.

The ITV programme has now been removed from their catch up service but you can still see the clips of our fantastic superstar babies on You Tube!!

Youngest ever Water Baby...

So as Kat & Scott have proved you are never too young to start swimming.... Robyn swam with Kat every day during the pregnancy so it was only right that she had her first lesson with Water Babies at 2 days old.

However, since Robyn made her splash Water Babies have seen a young baby, Phoenix was just 36 hours old when he took his first dip in the pool. Now that is truly amazing!!

For those age 1-4 years our excellent Toddler program is for you:

We have designed our program for your little ones to have lots of fun, play and sing whilst learning the pre fundamentals of swimming and incorporating the learning outcomes from the ASA British Gas Learn to Swim Framework. In other words a fun, structured programme which will ensure their skills and confidence will continue to grow whilst having bucket loads of fun!!
