Water Babies Sussex East and Tunbridge Wells

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!

Kelly Lockwood runs classes across Sussex East & Tunbridge Wells, following a successful career in learning & development, during which time son, Archie, was born. “Swimming with him was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done,” she recalls. “I used to be a bit of a control freak, and the first time I really felt comfortable in my new role as a mum, and felt able to ‘let go’, was when we were swimming together.”

Kelly loved baby-swimming so much that she went on to qualify as a swimming teacher herself, and taught in her spare time. The turning point came when Archie started school – and she realised that he needed her to be around more than ever. So when the chance came to leave the corporate world behind and bring Water Babies to Sussex East & Tunbridge Wells, she jumped at it!

“I remember the sheer joy I experienced with Archie” she beams, “and to be able to bring that joy to other people is incredible. There are no ‘bad days’ at Water Babies – it’s a way of life, not a job!’

Kelly would love to hear from you, so why not give her a call? You can find them on Facebook at Water Babies (East Sussex  & Tunbridge Wells), where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.
