Bethnal Green babes get a taste for water
BABIES as young as a few weeks old will be able to take part in an award-winning swimming course in Bethnal Green next week.
Water Babies enables tiny tots to swim underwater and on the surface making the most of their natural affinity with water while teaching confidence and safety techniques.
Despite the emphasis having fun, the course does have a very serious side to it and babies are able to take part in the classes from birth.
Hannah Yeomans who runs Water Babies with Lucy Sullivan says: “Drowning is still the third highest cause of accidental death in the UK. In most cases, it’s the shock of sudden submersion that causes children to panic.
“We believe introducing babies to water as early as possible, they’ll be less likely to experience fear if they fall in.”
