Enable your baby to swim happily, safely and confidently from an early age.

Swim Academy for Babies is a specialist baby swimming school that started in Cornwall more than 10 years ago,  and has now branched into Somerset.

We are proud to be wholly run by mothers, providing a unique experience for families with babies and small children.

We run tailored baby swimming classes for babies from newborn to 4 years old, we then offer swimming development courses and junior squads for ages 5 to 10 years old.

We create a natural, loving and fun environment where you can enjoy special time with your baby, deepening your special bond whilst learning how to help your baby enjoy the water.  We teach babies water awareness and safety, allowing them to explore and discover what their bodies are capable of in a variety of structured situations.  All our classes are uniquely planned taking into account the ability of each individual baby and child.

The earlier babies are introduced to water the sooner they can be taught vital water safety skills as well as increasing their strength and stamina.

We also include fun excercises to help mothers recover their pre-pregnancy body weight.

We use internationally proven ‘in water’ and ‘underwater’ techniques to improve babies lung capacityand function as well as boosting babies self-confidence and general heath and fitness levels.

Most babies also develop better eating and sleeping patterns, and many parents plan sleep times around swimming classes!

Other family members are welcome to bring their baby swimming as soon as baby’s umbilical cord has healed. This may be useful during the first 6 weeks when mother cannot go in the water.

Bonding, Nurturing, Caring, relaxing, fun!
