About us

Anna established Lilypad Baby in May 2016 after previously working for a well known local swim company for over 6 years as a Baby & Pre-School and Swimming Teacher.

The opportunity arose for Anna to run lessons in a private pool in Thurlstone, where the lessons are run with small numbers and are bespoke to each individual child’s needs, making the lessons baby-led.

Anna’s vision for Lilypad Baby was to have a one-stop shop for a variety of classes, so she qualified as a Baby Massage, Baby Yoga and Baby Sign tutor.

Our Mission…

…”Is to give parents and carers the opportunity to bond and have quality time with their child in an environment that is relaxed and baby-led.  Not only do we offer life-saving skills in teaching children to learn to swim from an early age, but we also provide parents with key skills to help understand their little ones before they have even learnt to talk.  It is well known that there are bountiful benefits to Baby Massage and Baby Yoga and all our classes give carers the opportunity to discuss any issues or concerns they have in a non-judgmental environment.”

Our classes are fun and interactive, with lots of songs and toys, visit our ‘What Folk Say About Us…‘ page to see our customer reviews or visit our Facebook pages:
