Avghi Dolan


Avghi trained as a teacher in 2015 and hasn’t looked back!

“I was first introduced to Aqua Babies in 2008 when my son George was born, it was so important to me that George would be confident and enjoy the water…”

“I fell in love with the programme, I loved seeing him progress from week to week, not to mention that it was the highlight of my week where I was able to enjoy quality 1:1 with no distractions and also meet parents who were also going through the same sleep deprivation as me….”

“Soon after my second son Harry was born and Saturday was our swimming day!”

“When I was expecting my third son Theodorus I decided to take redundancy and spent some time at home getting used the idea of being a mum to three boys…”

“With three children swimming for Aqua Babies my passion for baby swimming was increasing. I started to have knowledge of how each activity would progress and the extra skills that they would develop.”

“I decided that I wanted to be the one teaching babies the skills my boys had learnt. I was lucky to be given the opportunity to train to be an Aqua Babies teacher, a far cry from being a service manager for a large pharmaceutical company.”

“I have never looked back. I feel honoured that I teach baby swimming and being part of a young persons development, and I don’t think I will ever not get emotional when a little one completes their 5 metres”

What our parents say about Avghi Dolan

“My son Milo has been attending swimming lessons with Avghi for two and a  half years. Without a doubt it is the highlight of our week. His confidence and ability are always growing with every term and this is definitely due to his wonderful teacher! Our swimming lessons with Avghi  have given us some of the most wonderful and treasured memories of Milo’s early childhood.”


“Avghi is consistent in her approach and has a great depth of knowledge.  She is energetic & positive and my children love her. As new parents to young children We feel very secure in Avghi’s abilities and really enjoy her sessions.”
