Water Babies teaches you to teach your baby to swim!

We have highly qualified baby and toddler swimming teachers who have a passion for what they do. Our lessons are held in small groups in warm water swimming pools and are taught in English. Every class is structured, progressive and lots of fun. In our classes we work on water confidence, safety and swimming skills. Our classes are unique to the Netherlands, and as they are held in English are accessible to all international families.

One of the nicest things about our classes is that they are such a lovely place to meet new moms and dads with children of similar ages, which is so important when you are new to a country.

The classes take place in various pools in Amsterdam, Huizen and Almere.

Short bio:

Although originally Dutch I had always lived abroad. In 2012 my husband and I had our son in Scotland and after a while decided to leave our police careers to move to the Netherlands to set up our own Water Babies franchise, as we felt structured baby and toddler swimming taught in English was something Amsterdam needed. We love what we do and seeing the smiles on the children’s (and parents’) faces is just wonderful.
