Welcome to Baby Squids Southampton!
We are Mary Bower and Emma Dawson, a mother and daughter Franchise team. I am Emma, a mum of one. Coming from an Early Years Teaching background, I fully understand the importance of allowing each child the time and space to develop water skills at their own pace, without pressure, whilst ensuring plenty of fun along the way. We aim to create a stimulating, fun and multisensory environment whilst teaching children all the key elements of early swimming and safety. It is a privilege to share these special moments with children and their families, and I consider myself extremely lucky. I have always been passionate about swimming. My early years were spent swimming in the sea off the North Devon coast where we lived. Many a holiday I enjoyed being a little fish, only leaving the water when I was a prune! I swim regularly myself to keep my body and mind happy and healthy.
