Water Babies Lancashire and North Manchester

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 Lancashire & North Manchester are run by Nayna and Kash Patel who, after having twins (and going right through Water Babies) somehow still had enough energy to set up their own classes - and to move from Bristol to Bolton to do it.

“The twins were premature, and I’m convinced that swimming helped them develop as well as they did,” Nayna recalls. “So that’s one reason why I feel so committed to what I do. I loved my previous job as an arts administrator, so it was always going to take something pretty special to tempt me away.”

Although a great help in the office, with the twins now happily swimming, Kash only occasionally finds the time to don his trunks. Despite his equal enthusiasm for Water Babies, he’s not quite ready to leave life as a civil engineer and join his wife full-time in the pool. However, Nayna is delighted to have a great team of highly qualified teachers, while the wonderfully enthusiastic Zoe, Holly and Gemma are the friendly voices in the office and complete the Water Babies crew.

They’d love to hear from you, so why not give them a call? Or check out the banter on the Water Babies Lancashire & North Manchester Facebook page.
