Director, Tutor, Pool Plant and Management
Carol first heard about Aqua Babies in 1999 when she was pregnant with her eldest son Matthew. It all sounded so intriguing and because she had always kept active and loved sport, she simply had to become involved.
So, after her son was born, she took him to baby swimming classes and they both loved the programme he completed.
At the time she was deciding on what new challenges to take in her life. The bulk of her career had been with Boots the Chemist holding senior positions in Store Retail management: A Regional Operations and Training Advisor working out of head office in Nottingham and her last role with Boots as an Assistant Area Training and Development Manager for both large and small stores for the Northwest.
“Becoming involved in Aqua Babies has been amazing! I have had so much fun and fulfillment knowing that what we are doing really makes a difference and is so important and valued. Ultimately for me it’s about ensuring that potential is reached in an environment that is conducive to learning. Through teaching babies, toddlers and children to explore the joys of the water I am deeply moved by the growth of their self-esteem and ability to succeed. Without experiencing that very first taste of success then I believe you will never really appreciate and strive to be the best you can be and truly successful. Encouraging coaching and leading the way for our children and their parents to achieve has been key for me. There is no feeling in the world like it when you see a huge beaming smile and recognition that something amazing has been experienced.”
