About Water Babies
franchise

For us, swimming is not just moving through water but also developing self-esteem and social skills. By learning how to swim, one will overcome their fear of water and develop a healthy attitude.

At Water Babies, we believe in strengthening the bond between a baby and their parents. For this reason, we make sure that whenever we teach swimming, the parents are in the pool as well with their kids. We believe in the importance of the family and this is reflected in the way we treat our franchise network. We are a Gold Winner of the bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year in 2016.

Jump In Our Pool

Our franchisees have been influential in the growth of our company. Through our franchise model, we are able to not only help people start their own business but also generate jobs for other people as well. They operate in more than 50 territories across the UK and Ireland. We invite you to take this opportunity to become part of the largest baby & toddler swim school in the world. While the selection process is rigorous and managing one entails hard work, you can look forward to great opportunities for success.

Training and support provided

Water Babies treats its franchisees as family and as such will be given full support. Upon acceptance, the successful franchisee will undergo 300 hours of baby swimming teacher training programme both in and out of the pool. Upon completion of this training, they will obtain a nationally recognized diploma in baby swimming. We will also provide administrative and business training. Next, the new franchisee will also be taught how to scout for suitable local pools and then how to market their baby swimming franchise. Aside from business support from Head Office, the new franchise partner can also count on the support of the rest of the network.

The ideal Water Babies franchisee

Potential franchisees will undergo a rigorous 6-step selection process. There are two ways to acquire a Water Babies franchise-- purchase an empty territory or take over a current franchise. The ideal candidate we are looking for should have a strong motivation to teach babies and toddlers to swim. Potential franchisees need to have initiative and self-motivation to succeed as a franchisee. To start the ball rolling, a minimum personal investment of ₤5,000 and a total investment of ₤25,000 will be required, VAT and working capital is not yet included in the total cost.
