Water Babies Wales South East

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 Wales South East are run by Aletia Griffiths and Jacqui Grant, and one day we’ll give these two a prize for ‘The Partnership for Whom Stress Is Not an Option’. Despite running a successful and growing business, they never row, never seem to get uptight, and even spend their days off swimming together with their children!

They were first introduced to Water Babies when they took their sons to swimming lessons in Bristol. So impressed were they that they left thriving careers as an engineering consultant and an ergonomist (we had to look it up too!) — and quickly signed the paperwork and trained to join the team.

The wonderfully enthusiastic Suzie, Sarah and Katy are the friendly voices in the office (Sarah and Katy are also teachers), while a team of highly qualified teachers – Marianne, Rebecca, Emma, Stacey, Dawn, Anita and Ally – completes the Water Babies crew.

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