Bubble Babies Experience
From as soon as they step into the changing rooms on a Saturday morning at Kingsley School Kettering, Bubble Babies mini swimmers are full of excitement; looking forward to a fun-filled, dynamic session in a hydrotherapy pool as warm as the tropics! Babies from 3 months through to 5 years are welcomed into the class, bringing along mum, dad, auntie, uncle, even grandma and granddad, who are all invited to share these special early moments. Everyone can bond by being a part of the amazing journey from baby’s first splashes in the water to their first independent strokes.
With parent and baby luxuriating in the warm water and air temperatures, optimum conditions are achieved: comfortable and relaxed you can maximise on your swimming session, focusing purely on baby’s enjoyment, skills and progress. Needless to say, landmark achievements are often swift in coming and are always intensely satisfying for all those involved. The carefully structured lessons ensure that a whole range of activities and equipment is introduced, leading to an appreciation of all four strokes and of baby being confident, happy and safe in the water, ABOVE and BELOW!
Each lesson provides your child with a fantastic cardio-respiratory workout, strengthening muscles and developing stamina
The multi-sensory stimulation provided in classes may encourage development of the brain, a keener alertness and good social skills.
As baby begins to accumulate the skills Bubble Babies has nurtured, his self-esteem and confidence soars. Parents too grow in confidence; they have been crucial facilitators of this amazing process!
Safety skills are an integral part of the Bubble Babies experience as drowning is unfortunately the third highest cause of accidental death in children.
Attending Bubble Babies classes means that your swimming schedule becomes a highlight of the week. It guarantees you regular sessions to focus purely on your beautiful baby in a warm and friendly environment.

Erika with one of her own two Bubble Babies
Bubble Babies has been my passion since 2004. In that time, I have taught hundreds of children and their parents by being in the pool with them, demonstrating at close quarters by enthusiastic example. I firmly believe that laughter and enjoyment is a key factor in achieving success and so my carefully structured lesson plans are packed with dynamic, exciting activities, gradually more challenging skills and are above all FUN!

What our parents say
'Going to Bubble Babies with Erika was fantastic in every way. We are both good swimmers and water confident but weren't really sure what you could do with a baby in the water apart from swish them about a bit. Erika taught us to be safe and water confident with our 3 month old son in a really fun way. We enjoyed learning with him and sharing the fun of the water. We tried and learnt so many new things that we definitely wouldn't have done if we had just taken him swimming on our own. It was a really friendly group and have made some good friends, both for us and our son. Over two years later our son is like a little fish in water, we are still building on Erika's techniques and are very grateful for the fun water confident gift that Erika has given us.' Alice, Leo's mum
'As part of my health visiting job, I have recommended many of my new Mums to Bubble Babies sessions. In these sessions parents gain confidence in their own abilities and how to promote water skills with their babies. All the people I have recommended have thoroughly enjoyed these classes. Parents have been enthused by excellent teaching and a nice relaxed atmosphere and many friendships have been forged through the classes. They have appealed to a wide range of parents and have been encouraging of Dads becoming involved too, promoting swimming as a family event.' Sue, Health Visitor
