Parent Testimonials

I swam with Oceanic Waterbabies for over six years with both of my boys. For various reasons I had to shuffle timetables and classes and as a result I have had over half a dozen Waterbabies instructors.

Some common threads have appeared whether the instructors have been rookies or wily veterans. Firstly, their caring nature is evident. It is obvious that this is a career for them and not just a job. They all have been outstanding communicators and easily approachable. Their friendly, enthusiastic manner have made the classes a joy.

The instructors have also provided helpful insights into other aspects of parenting which have always been well received. But, it is the passion of swimming and the Waterbabies’ philosophy around teaching that kept me coming back year after year.
