As one of the first activities you can do with your new baby even the smallest of babies can learn essential water safety techniques.
Our aim is to teach babies key water safety techniques in a way that is both fun and nurturing. As well as great exercise for your baby building stronger heart and lungs, it can also aid in their cognitive development and improved eating and sleeping patterns. It is also a lovely opportunity to spend some special one on one time to focus on just you and your baby. Plus it’s a great way to meet other new parents.
Our classes take place at purpose built baby swim centre in the heart of Brighont where the water is heated to a lovely 34 degrees and chlorine levels are kept to a minimum. We run with a maximum of 7 babies in a class to maintain a calm and relaxed environment for both parent and baby.
As one of the first baby swim schools in the UK , we have been developing and innovating the Little Dippers programme for over 25 years. We are pioneers in the field and have a dedicated and experienced team.
There are 7 stages to the course, which takes about a year to complete if all stages are followed consecutively. Different skills are introduced in each level in accordance with baby’s natural development, and babies and parents’ water confidence.
