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 Scotland Central are run by husband-and-wife team Wendy and Derek Lambie. When Derek met one of Water Babies’ co-founders, Jess Thompson, on a charity cycle ride in Peru, it was to change his family life forever. “When our baby Jorja was born, Jess’ gift to us was a Water Babies course,” recalls Wendy. By the end of the first term, Wendy was so blown away by the whole experience that she decided to swap her previous career as a pharmacist for a life in the swimming pool with Water Babies!
“I’m still amazed by the safety skills Jorja developed from a very young age,” Wendy explains, “including practically pulling herself out of the pool. Now that was impressive!”
Water has always been a big part of Wendy’s life, and she swam competitively as a teenager. “Derek was rather more apprehensive around water when I first met him,” she says. “But taking Jorja, and then our little boy, Shaw along to classes helped. So much so, in fact, that he's gone from being more or less a non-swimmer to a fully-fledged Water Babies teacher!”
The wonderfully enthusiastic Zoe is the friendly voice 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 Scotland Facebook page.
