Water Babies Shropshire, Mid Wales and The Black Country

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 Shropshire, Mid Wales & The Black Country are run by Heidi Hunter-Cope. With a PhD in Business Psychology that led to a global career in helping employees focus on their goals and objectives, when she decided that her own goal in life was “to smile more”, she knew just what to do: throw it all in, and re-train as a Water Babies teacher.

“My own children, Zac and Max, attended classes from 2005,” she explains, “and for 4 years they were the highlight of our week. I just love the fun of it: the excitement of going underwater and the amazing distances the children could swim from incredibly early on.”

Heidi’s husband, Chris, is sticking to computers for the time being. But since he works from home, he's always on hand to help out with anything to do with technology - look out for him at the next underwater photo shoot!

The wonderfully enthusiastic Sue, Laura, Ruth, Fi & Heidi are the friendly voices at the end of the phone. A team of highly qualified teachers – Heidi, Fi, Laura (the same Heidi, Fi & Laura from the office!), Em C, Em W, Nicki, Mary, Petra, Paige T, Paige H, Kate, Amy & Anne-Marie 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 (Shropshire, Black Country & Mid Wales), or join their Facebook Group where you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you.
