Water Babies Oxfordshire

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 Oxfordshire are run by Saz Sunthareswaran, who met her husband, vascular surgeon Rame, when they crossed paths at work; she was the resident physio on Ward 17, and they got together at a hospital ball shortly afterwards.

Having spent 8 years as a physiotherapist specialising in orthopaedics, it's no surprise that Saz was keen to start swimming with her daughter, Sophia, as soon as she could. So impressed was she that after her first lesson she came straight home and looked into training as a Water Babies teacher, little imagining that within the year she'd have fully qualified and bought the local business, too!

Saz has since added three more daughters to the family - Alisha, Jasmine and Amber. Thankfully she also has a bit of help these days, with the wonderfully enthusiastic Meggie, Lucy and Abbie who are the friendly voices in the office, while a team of highly qualified teachers - Davina, Claire, Wes, Karen, Wendy, Toni, Lucy, Gemma, Rachel and Candy - 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 (Oxford), or join their Facebook Group where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.
