Water Babies Wiltshire and East Somerset

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 Wiltshire & East Somerset are run by Anne Hanley and Paul Halton. As an ex-competitive swimmer it was an easy decision for Anne to take her newborn son along to baby swimming. And as there were no classes available locally at the time, she did a 2-hour round trip every Tuesday for what she describes as “the best 30 minutes of my week! I can honestly say that after the first lesson I thought to myself ‘wow, I’d love to teach this!’”

Fast-forward 18 months and Anne found herself a fully-fledged Water Babies teacher in Wiltshire, confident that one day she’d be running her own classes. Her passion for Water Babies is clearly infectious, and having witnessed the magic of baby swimming for himself, Paul didn’t need any convincing.

Happy to be joining Anne in work as well as play (though you won’t find him in the pool just yet!), Paul runs things in the office, while a team of highly qualified teachers joins Anne in the pool and 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 (Wiltshire), or join their Facebook Group where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.
