"My first daughter, Erin, started swimming with Kim at 10 weeks and it was amazing to watch such a tiny baby swim beautifully unaided under the water and to see her develop confidence in the water so quickly. Kim is an amazing teacher and helps you battle through the difficult lessons when they are sad or frightened - and your natural instinct is to get them out of the water! It is a gift she gives to children that will stay with them forever ... thank you so much Kim xxx"

“I would just like to say what an amazing teacher you are!
Our son Ashton has only had a couple of lessons with you- and I am thrilled to see how well he is doing. After his initial apprehension/screaming and fear, he then seemed to be very relaxed with you and already beginning to grow in confidence after only a few minutes of being in the pool."
“My daughter who is now 3 years old has been going to Aqua-Babe since she was 14 weeks old. As a particularly lively and spirited child!! She has taken to the water and right from the start has shown great confidence and a genuine love for swimming. As we approach the hotel she goes absolutely berserk and most mornings wants to put her costume on instead of clothes…"

“ I started taking my son Stanley to Kim’s classes when he was 4 months old, now aged 4 and starting school he still continues to have lessons during lunch times benefitting in different ways now that he has progressed through his infant years. The journey in learning to swim for my little people has been some times nerve-racking, often enjoyable but most importantly, always – always very worthwhile and rewarding. The classes are well structured and Kim is a professional, confident teacher, involving singing and play as key parts to her training style. As for the questions you may ask yourself “Do swimming lessons actually work”? The real proof was when he swam his first width without aids at the age of nearly 3, it was a very proud mummy moment. It’s all thanks to the consistency and discipline that swimming lessons bring and that Kim dictates. I wholly recommend Kim as an extremely proficient swim tutor for your child and would happily entrust any of my children under her care. My daughter is still being taught by Kim.”

“ My eldest son used to be very timid of the water and was not keen on doing even the simplest of swimming activities until he went to Kim (Aqua-Babe). Now at 4.5 he can swim unaided for at least 20 metres, jump in and has started learning to dive – my only problem now is getting him out of the pool!!!! Both my children have been taught to swim by Kim. As a result I have 2 very confident, happy children who love the water and know how to be safe in and around the swimming pool”.

My son (15 months) has been going to Aqua-Babe since he was 4 months old and loves it. It’s a relaxed but structured environment which encourages little ones to gain confidence in and under the water. As well as enjoying the lessons, he now loves swimming and wants to be in the water all he can. His baby sister has just started at the age of 8 weeks and she is also showing signs of a water baby”.

“Aqua-Babe – my daughter started swimming with Kim at about 3 months old – she is now nearly 5 and has sadly swum her last session with Kim at Aqua-Babe as she is starting full time school. My daughter is the most competent swimmer and has swum without any aids for a long time and this is all down to Kim. I couldn’t recommend Kim highly enough both as a fabulous teacher and also a lovely person! She will be hard act to follow”.
Robyn and Amelia
“Kim has a real desire to teach children to swim and a fondness for her pupils which comes across in all her lessons. It’s lovely to see how the children progress and become so confident in the water”.

“My husband and I were desperate to have our Grandson learn to swim, as much of our lives are spent on or around the water. We took him from 6 months and he had no fear and bobbed about in his armbands with no problems – then we heard through a friend about Aqua-Babe and with the large choice of dates Kim was able to slot him in for lessons immediately – that was 2 years ago and I am pleased to say that he started school in September aged 4, with the confidence to dive into the school pool whenever possible!! And swim the length. As a Nanny, I have met some really friendly parents and was made most welcome, the lessons are both fun and structured with no pressure put on the children, so they gain confidence week by week. I am delighted to say that I am now taking my new Grand-daughter”.
