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 North are run by sisters Carmel and Therese Rodohan who, despite setting off for university to study maths, physics, politics and media, both ended up in sales for 12 years. But somehow, something was missing.
So when Therese gave birth to Caillin in 2008 and found a passion to match any sale, it didn’t take much to convince her sister to join her in setting up their own Water Babies classes. And their enthusiasm remains boundless: “We feel so liberated!” they exclaim. “It’s as if we were born to do this. We’ve never had a job we’ve enjoyed so much. And we don’t think we’ll ever stop being blown away by all that babies can do. It makes you look at them in a completely different light.” Since then, Therese has had son number two- Antoin born in 2013, and Carmel had a little girl Lauren to join the family in 2014- both who are amazing little Water Babies!
Once they get the bug about something, these two are hard to resist. In 2004, their mum was asked to set up a London-based support group for transverse myelitis, a rare neurological condition. The sisters soon got involved, and the Transverse Myelitis Society was formed, which now funds its own research project, has a network of support groups, and runs annual conferences. Anyone interested should visit the society’s website to find out more.
The wonderfully enthusiastic Mandy and Greta 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? Or check out the banter on the Water Babies North London Facebook page.
