Water Babies London North East

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 East are run by Hannah Yeomans and Lucy Sullivan. When Hannah first took her son to Water Babies in the north of England, 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 Lucy, one of her best childhood friends.

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? You can find them on Facebook at Water Babies (North London), where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.


Local news

Welcome to Water Babies

Thank you for visiting our page. Our summer term is well underway and before you know it we'll break for the summer holiday, giving our teachers some well deserved time off.
Our autumn term commences September, so if you are keen to get your little one swimming, make sure you let us have your details. We'll start offering spaces to clients registered onto our waiting list mid-July and we try to be fair by contacting everyone in the order they have contacted us.
We teach a specialised, progressive and award winning swimming programme and it's a privilege to be part of your development with your baby. Our Chapter 1 programme costs £175 for a ten week term comprising of 30 minute lessons. Complimentary attendance to our underwater photo shoot at the end of the term (photos are sold separately), Our Magical Water Babies Journey Book which is a lovely way of recording each milestone as you progress through each term with stickers and badges, and membership to our Water Babies club "My Waterworld" which gives you access to discounted products and services!
We teach you how to swim your baby safely and in the correct position. We teach important lifesaving skills so they are able to learn how to hold onto the side safely, fall in safely and how to control their breathing so they can swim underwater.
Our babies embark on an exciting swimming journey which is continuous, moving onto a new chapter each term. This is why new babies are unable to join us at any point through the term as they will miss the early progressions. We have 4 terms each year. Spring starting in February, Summer starting in May, Autumn in September and our Winter term in November.
Check out our facebook page - we would love to see your photos and hear about your little ones swimming milestones, memories and accomplishments.

Alternatively please call us on 020 8989 4821 or email readysplash@waterbabies.co.uk. We look forward to speaking to you.
It is never too early to register your interest in classes, even for baby bumps!
We swim seven days a week so please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be delighted to discuss your booking and find a course suitable for you.
Swimming gives your little one a complete workout, strengthening heart, lungs and their respiratory system, which in turn aids brain development. Regular swimming can enhance their awareness whilst improving sleeping and eating patterns - a definite bonus for parents!
We swim across West Essex in Waltham Abbey, Harlow, Loughton, Barkingside and Chadwell Heath (providing easy travelling distance from Chingford, Epping and Sawbridgeworth)
We have pools across North East London including two lovely hotel pools conveniently situated in the Docklands. Our pools in Holloway and Islington allow convenient travel from Upper and Lower Clapton, Stoke Newington, and Highbury.
We have lovely warm hydrotherapy pools perfect for babies from birth located all over East London - Isle of Dogs, Stratford, Limehouse and Hackney. If you would like to register your interest for future terms please click on the "Ask About" classes tab and register your interest in order to receive our welcome email and information about when our classes are open for bookings. The earlier you register with us the better chance you will have at securing a place at your preferred venue.
Happy Splashing xx

We're on the look out for new pools!

We're always on the lookout for lovely warm pools to hire for our lessons. Please get in touch if you know of an under utilised pool. You never know, if it is the first time we have heard of the facilty and we then go on to swim there you would be eligible for a free course of lessons!

Upcoming Photo Shoots

Our next Photo Shoots will take place as the summer term comes to a close.  It will be held at our Aloft Hotel venue in Royal Victoria, next to the Excel on Friday 19th and Satuday 20th July.
