Natural Born Swimmers Water Babies have been running classes across Sheffield for the past eight years. And the good news is that it’s never too early to take your baby to the pool - as long as the water’s warm enough. The multi award-winning Water Babies course teaches using voice commands – learning to respond to these is excellent for your baby’s mental development. Lessons last half an hour and provide a complete physical work out. Swimming is also excellent for enhancing the bond between parent and child. And, with the emphasis on having fun, lessons are a great way of making new friends. The other obvious benefit is water safety. With carefully structured training, babies can be taught life saving skills such as turning onto their backs or swimming to the nearest solid object following a sudden submersion.

What do you think about our new look What’s On? We have had requests by parents to have our What’s On guide to be even more user friendly and to be organised by areas in Sheffield. Because Sheffield City Council have split the areas in Sheffield by Community Assemblies we have decided to arrange our What’s On guide this way (please see map at front of booklet). We’d love to hear what you think about our What’s On guide whatever your comments...
