Meet the founder
I’m Laura and I founded Baby Squids (previously known as Baby Paddlers) in 2012. I was frustrated trying to find good quality swim classes for my own young children and attended several swimming classes, but felt they lacked flexibility, friendliness and fun. So I decided to start my own swimming teaching business!
My personal experiences and values have shaped the Baby Squids approach to teaching children to swim. I believe that your child should be at the heart of everything we do. At Baby Squids we want to help children to build a lifelong love of swimming. We teach your child to be water confident through games and engaging activities, always striving to make it fun for both parents and children.
Our swimming classes are designed to provide a great opportunity for you to bond with your child and are open to children right the way through from birth to 4 years of age.
Baby Squids have a love and passion for the water, and want to share that. Our teachers are passionate about developing your child’s skills and confidence, and we welcome your input and feedback as we travel on the Baby Squids journey together. It goes without saying that all our staff are fully qualified swim teachers, but it is also important that they have empathy, provide you with a warm welcome at every class and support you and your child to get the most out of your Baby Squids experience.
