  • We wanted Jack to be able to swim from an early age and wanted small classes really geared towards babies having fun in a nice environment to build his confidence. Kim's classes were recommended to us so when Jack was 10 months old we enrolled and she immediately put us all at our ease. The classes are fun so Jack enjoyed them right from the start. It wasn't all plain sailing as Jack has got older his awareness has grown and he has been through phases where he doesn't want to go onto the next step and swim by himself but Kim has encouraged us every step of the way to persevere and it has really paid off. We have met some lovely people through the classes and the facilities are really family friendly, sometimes we both want to take Jack to his lessons so we can both see his progress and one of us can be at the edge of the pool while the other one swims with him. Our only regret is that we didn't start doing this with him at an earlier age.

  • Eddie has loved swimming since he first started lessons at Aqua-babes when he was 3 months old. He is now 16 months old and is thriving in the water thanks to Kim. Her teaching and expertise make the lessons fun whilst Eddie learns swimming skills and safety in the water. It makes us so proud to see his confidence and ability grow with each lesson. Aqua-babes swimming lessons are a highlight of our week and we look forward to watching Eddie's swimming skills develop as he grows older.

  • My son, Archie, started his swimming lessons at a later age of 30 months old. However within a year his confidence improved so much he was jumping in, swimming underwater and even swimming unaided without fear. He now loves his ‘big boy’ class with Kim and treats Kim as a familiar family friend. My baby daughter has now started her lessons with Kim and I just know that her confidence will improve in no time and most importantly she will be swimming unaided within the next couple of years. Kim is a wonderful teacher who is firm but fair with the children... most importantly she will get results enabling them to swim in their early years.

  • Both of my girls started swimming lessons with Kim at the age of 5 months. Both are able to swim without any aid, thanks to her patience and skill. Kim knows when to support them, and when to push them, because they need it! They always leave swimming lessons with a smile.

  • Aqua-Babe– Wouldn’t go anywhere else – Kim has taught all 3 of my children to swim and I wouldn’t trust anyone elseh to do it. Fantastic – not only does Kim teach our little ones to swim without armbands, she also teaches them water safety – what more can you ask for

  • After 5 years and 2 children I regard Kim as part of the family! She has encouraged and supported my little ones through the highs and lows of learning to swim. She has made me feel happy and welcome as both a frightened new mum and as a old time regular. Her techniques are caring yet firm and she has been the major factor in creating two confident little aqua-babes who just adore the water. I can not thank or recommend Kim enough.

  • Aqua-Babe has been fantastic for Alex – he has been going since he was 6 months old and Kim’s learning through repetition and play style for teaching together with her experienced no-nonsense approach to toddler tantrums has been the perfect combination. He is so confident and happy in the water and the fact that he could swim and dive before he went to school together with being very safety aware is all the proof needed. His baby brother Toby is now following suit

  • My son has been swimming with Aqua-babe since he was 4 months old, he is now 3, swimming without aids and absolutely loves the water, he jumps in off the edge (without fear), seems to prefer being under the water than on the surface and thoroughly enjoys his 30 minutes as I do watching. Bath times are a joy and I ‘m sure it is because he has been to Aqua-babe. Aqua-babe is our favourite part of the week and I’d recommend it to everyone to build their child’s confidence in the water from any early age. His Dad has also experienced such fun and bonding with his son and at the same time learning a life saving skill. We have just started taking his new baby brother , can’t wait for the same reaction!!

  • Both of my children have been taught to swim by Kim at Aqua-babe, Charlie is now at school and is a little fish, to the astonishment of other parents that watch her floating on her back, diving off the side and retrieving objects from the bottom of the pool. Learning with Kim has not just taught her these things but water sense and safety too. She was not always an easy pupil, but thanks to Kim’s patience and persistence she loves being in the water and is (more importantly to me) safe in and near it. My son Billie, is now following in his sisters “swim strokes” and has made the long journeys every week for me and rewarding and pleasurable experience, thank you Kim
