Water Babies London Central and South West

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 London Central & South West are run by Lo Winchurch, who practically grew up in water, participating as she did in a range of aquatic sports as a child. The first 10 years of her adult working life were then spent overseas, circumnavigating the globe whilst crewing on yachts and working as a dive instructor, including running her own dive school in Indonesia.

At the turn of the millennium she returned to the capital to put down some roots, working as a swimming instructor and personal trainer at some of London’s most prestigious health clubs. During this time she taught all levels and abilities of swimming, from babies to pre-competition, but soon realised that teaching babies was her true passion. She firmly believes that helping your baby to exercise from birth sets in motion a lifetime of healthy habits, so in 2007 she launched Water Babies in south west London.

The wonderfully enthusiastic Alice and Alexis are the friendly voices in the office, while a team of highly qualified teachers completes 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 (SW London) where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.

All of our pools are over 30 degrees Celsius which is much warmer than a regular swimming pool. Hydrotherapy pools are 34 degrees Celsius. We strongly recommend babies wear wetsuits in the non hydrotherapy pools as although they are super toasty we loose body heat 20 times faster in water than in air. If you want to purchase a wetsuit with your course, we will waiver the postage, normally £3.99.

Feel free to come to our Facebook page for local news, pictures of pools, chat from our teachers and some of our fabulous underwater photography.
