What Bubble Babies Parents Say
‘Bubble Babies is absolutely fantastic! It’s such a fun way to build confidence and learn new skills in a nurturing and supportive environment.
Erika is a brilliant teacher always making the sessions enjoyable with songs, games and activities.
Our little girl has thrived taking part in these lessons, going from no swimming experience to swimming a whole length by herself. We highly recommend it’. Emily's Mum
'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
At the end of her time at Bubble Babies, Sophie (Evie’s mum) wrote,
‘We've thoroughly enjoyed our swimming lessons and will really miss them - Saturday mornings have been such a highlight in my week!
You're a fantastic teacher and you do an absolutely amazing job! Thank you so much for having us and for teaching Evie to swim - we will really miss you!’
At the end of her time at Bubble Babies Amanda, who brought her first son Connor and then later Kealan, wrote: ‘We have had a wonderful time learning to swim with you.
It’s a very special group you have and we will miss it and you dearly.
I definitely have two wonderful bubble babies thanks to your fabulous lessons’.
Sue, a local Health Visitor, has this to say:
'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.'
‘Thank you for making swimming so much fun.
We felt very tearful when we left yesterday-we’ve enjoyed it so much. Just wish they could stay for a little bit longer.’
