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 Wellington & Auckland are run by Kelly Williams who, after hearing one of her close friends raving about how wonderful the swimming lessons were when she was living in the UK, decided to find out more. “Growing up, we lived close to dozens of beaches” Kelly explains, “so I spent most of my time either on, in or under the water - and wanted my children to be completely at home in the water too.”
She was hooked after the first lesson and made the decision to leave the corporate world of HR behind to train as a Water Babies teacher – which she duly did (whilst having another Water Baby of her own) - and she’s been completely in love with her change of career and teaching lots of happy babies and toddlers to swim ever since.
“As a parent, the classes were the highlight of my week and so I’m delighted to be bringing this wonderful experience to lots of Kiwi families back in New Zealand,” Kelly continues. “I want to change the concept in New Zealand that babies shouldn’t swim until they’re 6 months old – bringing them into the water much earlier is such an important lifesaving skill, an amazing bonding experience for them and their parents and is also a fantastic medium to allow them to exercise and build their stamina in a way that they just can’t do on dry land.”
She’d love to hear from you, so why not give her a call? Or check out the banter on the Water Babies New Zealand Facebook page.
