At Water Babies, one of our promises to you is that we’ll always put the safety and well-being of your child above anything else.
As you know, we have made a number of changes to your Water Babies lessons, to ensure we are in compliance with government guidance, and we are very confident that your lesson is a safe place to be.
With the latest government statement to move to Level 5 we are devastated to have to suspend all classes across Ireland until further notice.
Swim Ireland have made a submission to Government to reconsider swimming lessons being categorised as an 'exercise' class under Level 3. The Department Expert Group support the submission however the essential approval from the Department of Health has not yet been granted. In the current environment with escalating cases Swim Ireland are not confident that this will be approved in the short term. We will continue to lobby as we are passionate that swimming is a life skill and should be available to all children.
We will restart your lessons as soon as we can and will extend the current term.
We wish you all well and please stay safe. We look forward to seeing you in the pool.
Your Water Babies Team
