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 Kent are run by husband-and-wife team Simon & Fiona Dallender. Few people, on meeting Fiona, would guess that she used to be a zoo-keeper; that she used to liaise with the gruffest of trades-union reps in her HR role for a manufacturing company; or that she sat in a bath of freezing-cold water while giving birth so she wouldn’t need to take painkillers! Simon was an RAF volunteer when they met, and they spent years living on air-force bases in Norfolk and Lincolnshire before joining Water Babies.
Baby Millie was born in 2005 and is one of the most experienced Water Babies, having attended classes in both counties. Her parents were so impressed by both sets of classes (and the sense of continuity between the two) that, when the offer of voluntary redundancy came up for Simon, they grabbed it with both hands.
So they de-mobbed, relocated – and little Millie has now been joined by younger sister, Lottie and the latest addition to the family, brother Theo.
The wonderfully enthusiastic Lisa, Will and Kat are the friendly voices in the office, while a 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 Kent Facebook page.
