Waterbugs - Morton Hall

The lessons are taught by Geraldine McKeag who after more than 25 years working as a paediatric nurse changed careers to become a swimming teacher.  After successfully completing her basic swimming teachers qualification with the STA, she went on to pass her a baby and pre school swimming qualification and then went on to further study with the birthlight organisation where she became a fully qualified birthlight instructor and passed a Diploma in infant aquatics with a distinction.

Geraldine teamed up with Julie Bloomfield who is an advanced A.S.A.  swimming teacher with over 30 years experience of teaching Suffolk children to swim, and together they formed Waterbugs.

Waterbugs use birthlight methods that are designed to create an excellent foundation for the children's future in the water, promoting safe practices and confidence.  As well as this their classes are an ideal environment for mothers and fathers to bond with their babies, for children to socialise and for parents to spend quality time together with their children.

Waterbugs have two swimming teachers per class to ensure quality tuition for all.  Class sizes vary from 4 in the pre school group to 12 in the parent and toddler classes.  Geraldine teaches from the water so is at hand to help.

Both instructors are CRB checked.

The classes are as follows:

·         Aquababes (3-16 months) Fridays at 14.30

·         Parent and Toddler (12months-school age) Monday and Friday 14.00

·         Pre-School (3yrs to school age) Mondays 14.30
