Water Babies Liverpool

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!

As Alison Ogden listened to one of her best friends enthusing about our baby swimming classes, she decided that lessons would also be good for her own son, Thomas. But when she discovered that no classes were available locally, she decided to start her own! So leaving behind her successful career in marketing, Alison opened Water Babies classes in Liverpool in October 2005.

A couple of years later, Thomas was joined in the pool by the newest addition to the family, little brother William — both of them now great splash-mates.

Since 2005, Water Babies in Liverpool has flourished and today teaches over 1,800 babies a week. Even though she loves to teach, Alison cannot survive on chlorine alone, so she now has Hazel by her side helping her run the business, supported by a team of highly qualified teachers - Julie, Louise, Siobhan, Shelley, Gemma, Sam, Lynn, Hazel, Jenny, Nicola, Katie, Catherine, Jen and Laura (phew!). Meanwhile, the wonderfully enthusiastic Hazel, Jane, Mo, Lynn, Jo, Eric, Charlotte and Nicola are the friendly voices in the office who 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 at Water Babies (Liverpool, Warrington & Wiggan), or join their Facebook Group where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.
