Meet the Team

teach teamThe Aqua Tikes Team

All the Aqua Tikes team are passionate and enthusiastic about the benefits of our swimming lessons for babies, toddlers and their parents. In addition we are all qualified lifeguards and parents to young children ourselves!

We ensure that every swimming session is full of fun and tailored so that everyone in the class has a terrific time.  All our team members are parents who were so inspired by their own positive experience that they became Aqua Tikes teachers themselves!

Hello! My name is Zach and I am the inspiration for Aqua Tikes. Daddy started to take me when I was just a little baby. I always have a great big grin on my face when I am in the pool and I have already asked my mummy if I can teach babies to swim just like her and daddy.



Watching Eddie take Zach swimming from such a young age was such a great experience. I was so proud of both my boys (big and small) and they were having so much fun I wanted to join in as well. Teaching parents to teach their little ones to swim is the most rewarding job in the world!

This all started for me when I got into a pool with Zach when he was 10 weeks old. I knew from that moment that this is what I needed to do and together my wife, Lora, started Aqua Tikes. I am passionate about providing great lessons so that each parent has the same positive experience that I had!



I have loved swimming for as long as I can remember.  The thrill of collecting swimming badges at school and sewing them onto my towel has never really left me!   Taking my children swimming soon became my favourite activity of the week.  Watching them grow into confident and capable swimmers is so rewarding!  Being a swimming teacher enables me to do something that I love whilst starting little ones aquatic adventure!


Our NCT group all started swimming with Aqua Tikes almost 3 years ago and we haven’t looked back. I’m thrilled to share the fun and exciting world of swimming to other families. It’s such quality time with your little one and is a great chance to focus solely on them.  I am thrilled to be meeting all the new babies and toddlers and sharing the fun of baby swimming  with them!                            



I wanted to become a swimming teacher because I love to swim. Learning to swim is just as important to me as learning to walk. When I became a new mum my son didn’t even like having a bath.  After the first session his confidence in the water just continued to grow.   I am looking forward to having some amazing fun and giving the children the confidence not just in the water but in life.


Watching my partner take our daughter swimming from 10 weeks old with this fantastic company I soon became very passionate about! I love watching and playing in the water with our little one knowing she is learning an important life saving skill whilst having fun all the time. Teaching others to feel confident in the water and teach water safety is too much fun to be called a “job”!


Coming from a sport and exercise background it was a no-brainer to me to take my children swimming as soon as possible. I have loved seeing my own children grow in confidence in the water and our times together in the pool are always so enjoyable. I hope that I can help others experience a similar feeling of pride by guiding both parents and children through our swim programme whilst having a greattime and learning an new, lifesaving, skill!



When Poppy was born we were keen to get her swimming as soon as we could. We started when she was around 9 weeks old and my love of baby swimming grew from that moment. The time we share in the water as a family is precious and I knew that when I left the Royal Air Force I wanted to be involved in teaching other parents and their babies to swim. I am thrilled to be a part of the Aqua Tikes team and look forward to taking more families through their swimming journey.
