George set up Swimbabes with his wife Laura in 2003.
“Swimming is an essential life skill. In 2009, ROSPA confirmed there were 405 water-related accidents in the UK. This is a staggering number when you consider that swimming is part of the National Curriculum. Knowing how to swim can save your life but the other benefits are clear too; it aids physical, social and emotional development for babies and parents alike.”
What do you enjoy about teaching babies to swim?
Even though I have been teaching babies to swim since 2003, I still get such a buzz seeing babies become great little swimmers as they progress through our swim program. As well as being qualified to teach Swimbabes classes, I am qualified to teach our Swimstars program for older children. I feel it’s so important to be able to teach skills that promote water confidence and water safety whilst having fun at the same time. Being able to teach these invaluable skills is so rewarding and worthwhile.
