Water Babies, Ireland’s leading baby swim school, which teaches swimming to over 4,000 small babies and toddlers in Ireland every week, is delighted to announce that it is bringing its award winning baby swimming classes to Limerick.
Water Babies classes in Limerick will be run by husband and wife team Lisa and Jamie Cobbe, who have been teaching small babies and toddlers how to swim in swimming pools in Galway, Mayo and Sligo for the past five years. The couple currently teach almost 700 babies per week and the number is growing every term.
Water Babies offers fun, innovative baby swimming classes, taught by world-class instructors like Lisa and Jamie Cobbe and their lovely team. With a multi-award winning programme which teaches vital water confidence and safety skills from birth, the overall aim of Water Babies is to teach parents to teach their baby how to swim.
The Water Babies programme, which is designed to make the most of babies’ natural affinity with water, teaches confidence and safety, using specialist techniques that see many swimming short distances from as young as 30 months.
Baby swimming is an entirely safe and gentle activity which helps parents bond with their baby while giving them a lifetime’s water confidence and safety skills. Swimming from birth stimulates the brain and develops muscles in a safe, relaxed way and water is a familiar environment that babies love.
The Water Babies swimming course is very different to traditional swimming lessons. Water Babies only use warm water pools (30° or above) so babies can join classes from birth and immunisations are not required or necessary in order to start classes. While the emphasis is on having fun, the course is carefully structured, with progressive lesson plans for each week.
The core Water Babies programme lasts one year and is divided into five ten week terms. Each of the 50 lesson plans is carefully worked out to progress learning and understanding. However, fun is also a key element of the Water Babies’ lessons. The overall aim is to provide an enjoyable and stimulating activity for both parent and child.
