Join The Number 1 Baby Swim School

Did you know you can take your baby swimming from their very youngest days? Water Babies Kent offer these fantastic lessons in both Folkestone and Hythe.

From gentle floating, kicking and splashing, to wriggling, giggling and jumping in, here’s what to expect from your baby swimming lessons!

Your Water Babies story can last for just over 4 years and is divided up into lots of different ‘chapters’ – each one builds on the last and  is full of lots of splashy fun! You can begin at the start of any chapter – and really, the earlier, the better (our youngest Water Baby was just 1 day old!).

Babies and toddlers just love being in warm water — and it’s really good for them, too. What’s more, in their first year, a baby’s brain grows more rapidly than at any other time, so it makes sense to start early and maximise their exposure to learning experiences in a variety of environments. And with NHS guidelines saying babies don’t need to have had their vaccinations before they can swim, it’s never too soon for them to become Water Babies!

Create precious memories with your baby

For many of our parents, their child’s first swimming lessons are among their most precious memories: memories you can treasure forever.  Our classes are kept small and the fun, relaxed atmosphere creates a sense of camaraderie within the group, with carers – and children – often socialising together afterwards. And don’t worry if you’re not a particularly strong swimmer – the water’s always shallow enough to stand up in, and rest assured you’ll never have to go underwater if you really don’t want to.

You’ll be so proud of what they can do!

Together, we’ll teach your child to feel safe and confident both above and below the water. You’ll be amazed to see that, within a few lessons, they’ll be moving freely under the water. As they progress with the classes, they’ll move from the early days of enjoying the freedom and fun (floating, kicking and splashing about) to learning to swim independently.

For more information, visit or call the very friendly team on 01622 729989 and they’ll be happy to help.

Classes held at The Beacon, Folkestone, and The Imperial, Hythe
