Water Babies Scotland East and 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 Scotland East & West are run by Hugh and Ailsa Davidson. A chance conversation with friends over supper led Hugh to a complete life change – switching careers from electronic engineering to baby-swimming. And the life of ‘splishing-splashing’ and Humpty Dumpties suits him admirably — in a way that perhaps a suit and tie never did.

Hugh is now the most experienced and most qualified baby swimming teacher in Scotland - and his teaching team aren't far behind! Debbie, Ruth F, Ruth N, Phil, Holly, Lara, Amanda, Suzie, Jen, Sarah and Kerrie have clocked up an impressive total of 62 years Water Babies teaching experience between them! Supporting them in the office are the wonderfully enthusiastic Alison, Nadia, Fiona, Lynn and Ali who complete 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 Scotland Facebook page.
