Water Babies Notts and Derby

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 Notts & Derby are run by Marie & Martin Smith, who were originally introduced to the concept of baby-swimming through taking both their children to Water Babies classes. And despite having had a highly successful career in pet food manufacture, in 2005 Marie decided that setting up her own swimming classes would give her the flexibility and family business lifestyle that she and Martin so craved.

'Swimming with the kids became such a huge part of our lives,’ Marie explains ‘and seeing just how much they benefited from it in so many ways convinced me I should grab the opportunity to get involved when it arose.’

Since starting the business, the couple have been joined by a fantastic crew of teachers, all of whom were equally inspired to retrain, having experienced the course as parents first. And then there's the equally fabulous Linda Ross in the office, or Aunty Linda as she might be called. 'Who not only runs everything brilliantly but waters the plants, puts the bins out, and rescues me from the hairdressers when I forget my purse,' Marie fondly recalls. Sounds like we could all do with a Linda looking after us!

They’d love to hear from you, so why not give them a call? You can find them on Facebook at Water Babies (Notts & Derbys), or join their Facebook Group where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.
