Ray Murphy - Owner/Teacher
Hello, my name is Ray, the new owner of Aquababies/Kiddies Surrey. I'd like to tell you my story and why I believe you'll enjoy swimming with us!
My passion for the water started when I was growing up in Sydney, Australia, spending my summers at the beach and winters at my local pool. I was a competitive swimmer throughout my school years, and my passion for swimming developed into becoming a swimming teacher. Having taught swimming for 12 years at a private health club in London, an opportunity arose 3 years ago to teach babies and toddlers. Since then, I've enjoyed immensely teaching Mums and Dads how to teach their little ones such an important life skill. I'm now even more excited to join the Aquababies team to provide each of our swimmers with a positive experience that will enhance their life-long love of the water.
