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!

🤩Mirroring 🤩

Great start to copy cats week at Blackwater today. The children and parents had a great time making silly faces and matching the coloured balls to the faces. Children learn so much from mirroring so that’s why it was so lovely to see the parents joining in and being silly too as the children then join in with them.

We then had a great time with the older ones with magic buttons which helped the grown ups know how far underwater the children wanted to go, giving the children another way to communicate what they wanted really helped and they had great fun when they realised they could push mum or dads magic button and send them under the water too. Lots of great confidence building seen by all.

And a lovely morning finished by welcoming our youngest new swimmers who really enjoyed meeting themselves in the mirrors and floating with mums & dads 😍
