Water Babies Yorkshire South

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 Yorkshire South are run by Helen Straw, who first dipped her toe in the water with Water Babies when her daughter, Amy, was just 9 weeks old. “I just fell in love with everything to do with Water Babies,” she recalls fondly “and it didn’t take me long to decide to train as a teacher.”

That was 6 years ago, and Helen’s passion for swimming babies and toddlers is stronger than ever. “I absolutely love being in the pool, giving parents the confidence to swim with their babies and teaching toddlers to swim through games and fun actives. Some weeks I wonder who has more fun, them or me!”

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Helen’s now mum to two children and is also proud to be part of the team that trains new teachers joining Water Babies.

The wonderfully enthusiastic Maria is the friendly voice on the office phone, and Helen’s delighted to have a team of fully qualified teachers who complete 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 South Yorkshire Facebook page.
