Meet the Team

Sue Stansfield


Sue’s son Nicholas was one of Aqua Babies first members! Closely followed by her daughter Megan.

Sue’s initial career was based in the catering industry where lots of multitasking is needed!

As her children reached school age the call for Aqua Babies teachers went out and Sue felt this was an ideal career change. That was in 2002 and she hasn’t looked back.

“I have worked for Aqua babies for over 16 years. I took a break from work when I had my 2 children (who are both adults now) and then was trying to decide what to do next. My daughter was just finishing with Aqua babies when Wendy was looking for teachers, I had so enjoyed the sessions with my daughter that I decided to join the team.”

I enjoy all the different levels in Aqua babies. The greatest and most enjoyable part of the job is when the children achieve their 5 metres especially if they’ve started with me as a baby and I’ve seen their progression.”
