The Waterbabies Story

Kel Neva

The Waterbabies® program was founded by Kelly Rae in 1991.

From small beginnings and a core group of six families, Kelly has developed Oceanic Waterbabies into a world class program, teaching thousands of parents over the years how to safely and joyfully teach their babies to swim.

“I wanted the program to be nurturing, educational and empowering for parents. Our philosophy of doing it with your child... not to them, helps create a happier and more connected learning process for both parents and their babies, and it has to be fun”.

The Waterbabies Philosophy is about love and connection.

Teaching your baby to swim can be an incredibly rewarding and uplifting experience, with memories to last a lifetime. We know that what is done to the child, is absorbed by the child and becomes their way of dealing with others.

So let's get underway with a positive, loving start in the water!
