"I just can't wait to tell you all about it" Isn't this every excited child
It's so lovely to hear how much our swimming families enjoy the program, we would like to share a few stories with you.
We first started at Oceanic Waterbabies with our then 5 month old daughter. Although we thought she loved the water and swimming, she became distressed in classes and we never made it through a full lesson without her becoming upset to the point of having to leave. It was heartbreaking and we were confused as to why but then Kelly Rae took us under her wing and with her own precious time and expertise, she helped our daughter become comfortable and happy in the water. We were able to rejoin our class the following term and it was as if our baby never had an issue in the first place.
Our daughter is now in her third year at waterbabies and our new baby girl has just started in her first term of swimming. Learning to swim and enjoying the water safely is an important value for our family and without Waterbabies, we may have had a much tougher time achieving this. We couldn't recommend Oceanic Waterbabies highly enough to other parents.

I can't speak highly enough about Oceanic Waterbabies. I had tried a couple of swim schools with my older daughter but wasn't quite comfortable with their methods until I discovered Waterbabies. We didn't have an easy start. Camellia was not very happy in the pool. Thankfully the amazing instructors didn't give up on us and invested lots of time and hard work to help Cami relax and feel safe in the water.
What I like most about Oceanic Waterbabies is their gentle approach and how they understand babies. And not only babies, they also helped me to overcome my anxiety around water so I can now truly enjoy taking Cami swimming and I am really looking forward to continuing our adventure at Waterbabies.

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 was the passion of swimming and the Waterbabies’ philosophy around teaching that kept me coming back year after year.

Some of the best "daddy daughter" times I've ever had were in the pool helping her learn to be comfortable around water!
Congratulations Oceanic Waterbabies. 25 years of wonderful memories. Well done to Kelly and family for their hard work over the years. It pays off when you see your child swim from a young age and continue with the wonderful skills they have learnt over the years with Kelly and staff. My girls and I loved it when we swam with you. We only recommend Oceanic Waterbabies to our friends and people who ask. Proud to have been apart of your success. Congrats again. Xx
Thank you Kelly Rae for being so fundamental in my life's journey - I trained and became a teacher, both my boys Jaxsen & Ty swam with Waterbabies - you & Bob were at the birth of Ty........I am so very grateful you came into my life
Wow. What an achievement. Goes to show love is always supported and your school has plenty of that. The dedication expertise and love every one of your teachers gives surpasses anything else I have witnessed. Love respect and happiness to you all. Thanks Kelly for having the tenacity to always honour a loving way of teaching.
Congratulations Kelly, we were with you 24 years ago at PMH and swam all 3 daughters with you from tiny babies. A wonderful program. All confident swimmers now thanks to you. Xx
This is the best program around. Both my kids are oceanic water babies. Look into it and see if there's one near you. Amazing ! ???
Well done Waterbabies:-) I had a ball with my babies over the 11 years we swam with you, and my kids still talk fondly of it:-)
"joy, love and connection in the water"....watching 'my baby' in your pool with his baby is such a delight in my life. I love what Oceanic Waterbabies brings to our world. Congratulations and much love and huge respect. Blessings on many more years and happy, safe and fulfilled in water babies ?
Congratulations Kelly, if not for your patience and guidance I would never of been able to keep swimming with my son, all your teachers have been an extension of that patience and understanding xxxx
