Baby Swimming at its best
Eaubaby Swimming was founded in 2021. Created by two professional baby swimming teachers who have over 50 years of experience in teaching babies and young children to swim and are incredibly passionate about what they do.
Fiona and Nicky accept infants from 8 weeks old and teach in a handful of pools around Tewkesbury, Cheltenham and the North Cotswolds – it really is Baby Swimming at its Best.
About Eaubaby Swim School
With a wealth of knowledge and passion, Nicky and Fiona founded Eaubaby Swim School in 2021. With 50 years of infant swimming experience between them, they now teach from locations such as; Moreton in Marsh Fire College, Bredon nr Tewkesbury, The Moretons, Bredon, Bettridge School, Up Hatherley, Cheltenham and Gloucester Royal Hospital.
Delivering a personal and bespoke service has always been our main goal. Our baby swim classes are capped to a maximum of 8 babies (averaging 5 per class) in order to deliver a high-quality service and to ensure that each and every child gains the personal attention they require.
Eaubaby is very proud to be individual and bespoke in its methods, having fine-tuned these practices over the last 25 years. Our methods are based around the principles of: Play, Train, Play. This encourages fun in the water alongside the structure of learning to swim via the sub-surface method of swimming.
Eaubaby introduces all of its students gradually into going under the water. First of all by teaching them to hold their breath, (by pouring water over their head and face), and the use of keywords and visual signals.
The Eaubaby Swimming Programme promotes Water Safety in every facet of its curriculum, starting in our Duckling level with ‘holding on’. Teaching babies to ‘turn back to the side’, jumping in safely and waiting for parents to let them know when it is safe to jump. All the way through to our ‘survival lesson’ in our Swim School lessons where our children are encouraged to ‘save’ their parents!
Our classes are a modern and fun way of teaching your child to swim with proven and remarkable health benefits. Swimming exercises every muscle in the body, strengthening your baby’s heart, lungs and respiratory system. Just taking your baby swimming for half an hour each week will also help improve their sleeping and eating patterns!
Working with babies and their parents every day, we know how important it is to leave the world a better place behind us, for them. Eaubaby is very proud to promote ethical and sustainable policies in everything that it does. From, promoting re-useable swim nappies, encouraging the use of re-cycling wherever possible, to minimising travel and working close to home.
You’re in safe hands
Fiona has been teaching babies to swim since 1989, having started one of the first UK baby swimming schools. Prior to opening her own business, she gained 10 years of experience teaching her own 4 children to swim creating, using and honing the methods that Eaubaby are proud to use to this day.
Nicky started baby swimming as a parent with her children 21 years ago, where she met Fiona. After thoroughly enjoying this swimming experience with both children trained to be a teacher and taught for 15 years with her previous company.
