A fantastic baby-bonding experience

Turtle Tots was originally launched and established in Bristol in 2010 by Gaby Lixton and Caroline Sparks. Having realised how successful and rewarding running a swim school could be, they began to license the business a year later.

Turtle Tots is passionate about promoting water safety and learn-to-swim skills, through their unique and fun-filled classes. Their aim is to create a lifelong love of water and enhance that special bond between parent and child. They also run aqua-natal classes for mums-to-be, providing excellent toning workouts for expectant mums and ensuring long-lasting and sustainable client relationships that start pre-birth and continue right through to preschool.
