Your local office

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!

When Hannah Yeomans first took her son to Water Babies in the North, little did she think she'd be starting a chain of events that would see her leaving her career in fashion. But leave she did, as she returned to her roots and set up her own classes in North East London with one of her best childhood friends, Lucy Sullivan.

After her own careers in advertising and the Metropolitan Police, Lucy was probably equally surprised to be getting back into the water, having been a keen swimmer in her youth.

Since starting the business, Lucy has become a mother to two children and Hannah now has three young boys.

The girls are joined by Celene and Caron in the office, making sure everything runs smoothly, and a growing team of swimming teachers who welcome over 1,300 babies and toddlers into the water each week completes 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 NE London Facebook page.
