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

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.
