Baby Swim 1

ilovebabyswimming operate in Derby, Chesterfield and Butterton Moor and aim to equip parents and children from birth to five years, with water safety skills. Water safety is a major concern of all parents and carers and ilovebabyswimming workshops are designed to provide parents, babies and toddlers with the skills needed to survive a potential accident in water. With practice their workshops will enable babies to not panic and have the ability to self rescue.


Claire and Sharon are a partnership running ilovebabyswimming workshops every other month, in all the above locations. Sharon has over 15 years swimming teaching experience. Workshops consist of a fun packed three day course where babies learn one of the eight stages of skills, each stage can then be completed at each workshop as and when the baby is ready. Over a Friday, Saturday and Sunday, in 2013 workshops are running in May, July, September and November. During the three days babies complete 3 half hour sessions in the water, where both parents are encouraged to participate, learning water safety skills they can then practice in their own time. All our stages are progressive and designed to equip babies and their parents with the skills which are necessary for water safety right the way up until each child is self-sufficient in the water.


The ideal age to begin is now, regardless of age, anywhere up to five years, Claire and Sharon are very flexible and happy to accommodate your child’s level of skill. Many children come to ilovebabyswimming from classic swim schools as the workshop environment suits parents rather than the commitment to weekly swimming classes. Workshops are priced at £64.50 for the three days and there are never more than seven families in each workshop. Claire offers early booking discounts for the following workshop as well as group discounts, however, there is no pressure to complete more stages if you find one or two are enough.


Not to be missed Derby Mums, is an opportunity for underwater photography!
