Babies and toddlers around Tipperary are getting ready to make a big splash this Autumn as Water Babies baby swim school is starting their new term on Saturday, 31st August.

Water Babies offers fun, innovative baby swimming classes, taught by world-class instructors. With a multi-award winning programme which teaches vital water confidence and safety skills from birth, the overall aim is to teach parents to teach their baby how to swim.

Husband and wife team Elaine and George Dunne, who brought Water Babies classes to Tipperary last year, teach weekly classes to babies (From 12lbs to 12 months) and toddlers (1-3 years) in St Joseph’s, Ferryhouse, Clonmel on Saturdays.

Water Babies gives children a lifetime’s water confidence and safety skills while swimming from birth stimulates the brain and develops muscles in a safe, relaxed way and water is a familiar environment that babies love. “Water Babies is such magical experience for babies. They absolutely love the sensation of floating in warm water. The repetitive movements of bouncing and splashing provide a great stimulation for their sense of motion and balance” explains Elaine.
