Turtle Tots Suffolk and North East Essex

WELCOME TO Turtle Tots Suffolk and North East Essex

Let me tell you a little about myself and why I know you’ll love our swimming lessons held in Suffolk and Essex.
My name is Rachel and before I started my Turtle Tots journey, I was a Chartered Accountant. I’m also a qualified biomedical scientist too! I became a mother when my daughter Evangeline was born in 2019 and again when my son Jude was born in 2020. Having grown up by the sea I felt very strongly about my children learning water safety skills from a young age, so I joined some local baby swimming lessons when my daughter was just 12 weeks old. We both loved the lessons; she was so happy and content in the water and I was amazed at how quickly she progressed. It was also an amazing bonding experience, great exercise for me, plus I made friends with several of the other mums in my lessons.

I soon decided I wanted something more flexible than the accountancy job I had previously been doing, so I re-trained as a swimming teacher and have never looked back! I love teaching babies and toddlers to swim; there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a little one progress in the water and gain confidence week by week.

When the opportunity arose to run my own Turtle Tots business I jumped at the opportunity to combine my passion for baby swimming with my business experience. Our lessons are great fun and fully inclusive and child-centred, so if your child has special needs then just let us know.
