Water Babies Bolton

Baby swimming with Water Babies is an exciting, enriching experience for both you and your little one. Not only does it teach vital life skills, but it also enhances the way babies and toddlers learn other skills, too. No one else reaches our high standards of professionalism, and no one else works harder to make sure you and your little one feel happy and safe. And we always incorporate lots of bonding, fun and socialising, so you can be sure that a Water Baby is a happy baby!

Classes across Bolton are run by Holly Unsworth, who was first inspired to dip her toe in the water as a Water Babies baby swimming teacher when she used to help out as a pool attendant as a teenager. “I used to watch the classes and was completely in awe of the incredible bond the teachers had with the babies,” she recalls. “I’ve always loved children, and I knew then that I wanted to be a part of this very special time in their lives.”

With several years’ teaching experience already under her belt from working for a neighbouring Water Babies office, when Holly got the chance to run her own classes locally, she jumped at it. “I enjoy watching the little ones as they progress each week, and knowing that not only have I helped them in their swimming journey, but have also watched them grow up, is a real privilege.”

Holly is joined in the office by the wonderfully enthusiastic Jessica, while a team of highly-qualified teachers – Kitty, Louise and Leanne – join her in the pool to complete the Water Babies crew. They’d love to hear from you, so why not give them a call? You can find them on Facebook, or join their Facebook Group where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.
