Bubble Babies

Welcome to Bubble Babies! We offer you and your baby the best start in swimming.  Our structured swimming programme develops your child to become a confident and happy swimmer.  Bubble Babies has over 10 years experience in the industry and has used this vast knowledge to  tailor make our baby swimming programme using the industry’s most current research, but we don’t just stop there..! Each course will build on previously learnt skills to create a baby led progression through your Bubble Baby journey which includes our special make believe sensory weeks where we take a trip to outer space, climb aboard a pirate ship and even swing like monkeys in the jungle and this is just the beginning!

Bubble Academy

Whether your child has moved up from our Bubble Babies programme or are simply not progressing in their current class, Bubble Academy offers a perfect place for them to shine.  Our classes are fun, supportive and tailor made to your child to teach water safety, confidence and correct swim stroke techniques from the current STA and Swim England guidelines.  We recognise that each child learns in different ways and we nurture these skills to ensure they reach their full potential.   Our school age programme is specifically designed over 3 levels, we develop water safety, confidence, and key swimming techniques including breathing, floatation, rotation, streamlining, kicks and pulls, as well as learning the 4 major stokes.

About Us

Bubble Babies is a small family run business which is ran by sisters Natalie and Charlotte. 

We started our journey into the world of baby swimming through taking our own children and found a passion and love for water.  We believe that it’s the personal touch that matters which is why our classes offer teacher consistency so that we build strong relationships to help your child’s success in their swim journey.  Here’s a little bit about us!

Hi! I’m Natalie!

I started baby swimming 11 years ago with my first daughter Issy, after falling in love with my weekly classes I soon became a qualified teacher and co-managed a swim school for 10 years.  During that time I went on to have a further two children Harry and Freya and I have enjoyed watching each of my children grow to love the water so much that Issy my eldest is now a competitive swimmer who swims for Braunstone Swim Club.  Since being introduced to competitive swimming I have joined Braunstones Masters team where I regularly train and I have qualified to volunteer as a Team Manager and Swim Judge!  Not only do I love the pool, I have also thrown myself into open water swimming!  

Hi! I am Charlotte!

I started my love for education and teaching back at university and went on to qualify as a primary school teacher, I taught in KS1 for 6 years and loved working closely with children and their families.  When my two children, Ruby and Owen, were babies I loved taking them to their weekly swimming sessions, I found that it was extremely rewarding and fell in love with baby swimming.  I went on to qualify as a baby and preschool swimming teacher and absolutely love my job. I find it so rewarding to watch children grow in confidence and develop a lifelong love for water, like my children have, and to pass that knowledge onto future generations.
