Preparing your little ones to be swimming naturals

When you introduce your baby to swimming early, it prepares them to be confident swimmers later in life. Swimming is a natural experience for babies, and Swimming Nature’s unique planned activities will achieve so much more than letting your baby splash about!

We go beyond teaching swimming

At Swimming Nature, we build a natural bond between your baby and water – for life. Only our specialists use the Swimming Nature Method™ – our exclusive blueprint for creating confident, strong and elegant swimming naturals.

Start classes with your baby from 3 months

wimming is a natural experience for babies, and our structured activities maximise the benefits of an early introduction to water.

You’re a vital part of the learning process

In a series of 30-minute classes we teach you how to teach your baby to swim. Be part of the formative moments that your children fall in love with the water.

Eight baby/parent couples per class; pool temperature 30 degrees; three separate age group classes:

  • 3-12 months
  • 1-2 years
  • 2-3 years

Your baby’s progress through the classes depends on their age and development and your teacher will tell you when they’re ready for the next step.

Swimming Nature baby benefits…


Swimming lessons help to strengthen the bond between parent and baby as well as introducing babies to their peers and encouraging social interaction.


The lack of gravity in water helps to improve co-ordination and balance and develops excellent muscle control.


New words, symbols, sounds and gestures are introduced throughout the programme to improve a baby’s vocabulary.


Our swimming lessons improve memory, problem solving, and abstract thought abilities in a stimulating and safe environment.


Imaginative play is used and encouraged throughout lessons. Parents can use the exercises at home and away from lessons too.


Progressive exercises encourage independence in the water. For example holding onto the side of the pool, instead of a parent, boosts baby confidence and reduces fear of the water.
