Founder, Director, Tutor, Pool Plant & Management
Aqua Babies began when Wendy, a primary school teacher, decided to swap the classroom for the pool.
“I had taken my daughter to classes and was amazed at the skills and confidence she acquired. I was offered the chance to train in the specialised skills and jumped at the opportunity.”
That was back in 1998 and by 1999 Aqua Babies in Manchester was born. Wendy has two daughters aged 23 and 16. Her eldest Aaliyah went on from being a super swimmer to a regional gymnast and Yasmin not only swims like a fish but is also a keen horse rider.
Wendy’s background as an early years teacher was a great springboard into teaching swimming with a specialist focus on babies, toddlers and the pre-school age group. She understands the importance of playing to learn!
