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 Cornwall & South Devon are run by Kate Evans, a former A&E registrar. When it proved difficult to juggle hospital hours with her young family, Kate found the answer to her working dilemma after she and GP husband Paul discovered Water Babies with their children, Polly & Sam.
“Unusually, I’d learnt to swim as a baby myself,” Kate recalls (we’ve always said it makes you brainy). “I could swim 3 miles when I was just 6 years old. So with our own children, it quickly became the one activity we’d never miss. Polly adored it from the start. If I’m honest, Sam was originally rather more fowl than fish, but now the confidence and fun they both enjoy in water is amazing.”
Kate’s medical background is invaluable to us at Water Babies’ head office, and she's heavily involved with our new paediatric safety course. Locally, her background helps with things like reassuring nervous parents. “I do get a lot of questions about general medical problems like colic and reflux,” she admits, “but it's great to be able to continue to share my knowledge!”
The wonderfully enthusiastic Jemma 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 Cornwall & South Devon Facebook page.
