Water Babies launched in Toronto in April 2015 with 1 venue, but by September the same year its ever-expanding client base meant that it had already extended to 6 pools. Classes in Canada’s biggest city are run by Shawn Goldmintz. With degrees in International Business and Law, little did he expect when he started working as a franchise lawyer that within 3 years he’d be trading his suits and briefcase for a lycra teacher’s top and jumping into the magical world of baby swimming – but that’s exactly what happened when he discovered Water Babies.
“When I get into the pool and start teaching, I feel the most incredible energy,” Shawn explains. “I feel extremely privileged to be having such a positive impact at the most influential stage of a child’s life - and that’s more rewarding than I could ever have imagined.”
