NCT Loughborough is very grateful that Water Babies Leicestershire sponsors our post-natal support activities . Their generous donation allows us to invest in necessary equipment for our baby and toddler groups, as well as other related activities, which will in turn help further our goals for supporting parents with young children.
These groups provide an essential service to local parents – from answering questions and giving support in the early days to providing a safe and welcoming environment in which parents and young children can socialise and meet other parents.
Water Babies Leicestershire is a local, family-run business which helps parents to teach their babies from as young as just a few weeks to take part in swimming lessons and gain water confidence and safety skills. The program, designed to make the most of babies’ natural affinity with water, teaches confidence and safety, using specialist techniques that see many swimming short distances from as young as 30 months. The lessons not only teach babies the joys of swimming but also have a serious side, with a drowning accounting for around a third of accidental deaths in children , it is essential children have the skills and instincts that could save their life if they were to fall into water.

We appreciate that Water Babies Leicestershire could have decided to sponsor another local charity, and we’re very pleased they decided on ours!
