Water Babies and Tommy's have been working together since 2006. Water Babies has raised over £3 million for Tommy's by running the Tommy's Splashathon every two years. In 2017 alone they raised over £1.17 million!
Water Babies runs multi-award winning baby swimming classes from birth and now teaches more than 50,000 babies and toddlers each week across the UK. Swimming with your baby is a special time to focus purely on each other and enjoy the closeness of playing in water. It's also the perfect exercise for little ones, since water allows muscles to move freely while being supported by its buoyancy.
One of their core philosophies is that they'll teach you to teach your baby to swim, so together they'll teach your child to feel safe and confident both above and below the water. Within a few lessons they'll be moving freely under the water, and over time they'll progress from the early days of enjoying the freedom and fun to learning to swim independently.
Water Babies have the best baby swimming teachers in the world, and their results speak for themselves. More than a dozen Water Babies have used their skills to survive after accidentally falling into water, even though they were very young at the time.
We are very excited for the 2019 Splashathon taking place this summer at Water Babies franchises across the UK with a pirates and princess theme!
