Community Business of the Year

Sponsored by Baby Squids

Read Bio

Baby Squids is really excited to be sponsoring an award at the Club Hub Event 2020. The Community Business of the Year award is hugely important to me as I believe that supporting local businesses is a key focus for small businesses.

Tessa has worked so hard to create Club Hub which is a fantastic network for children’s activities, as small or even larger business owners we need to support each other with helpful ideas, tips and guidance. Last year’s event really did achieve this!

In the last year we have been through a big rebrand and launched our franchising arm of the business. I have found so many networks within the local community have supported me in an abundance of ways. We get involved with many local charities to ensure that we are supporting important local initiatives.

Baby Squids classes are all about having fun in the water, ensuring that parents and children enjoy bonding and experiencing the sensory world of water. From a really young age babies can move in the water the way they can’t on dry land, we support natural development and curiosities with a huge range of activities, songs and exercises.

Our Milestones programme combines our understanding of physical development, sensory experiences and social interaction to create classes which parents and children really love. My team of amazing teachers truly love what they do and our customers trust our honest and friendly approach.

I have just signed my first 2 franchisees and have several opportunities to start new ones including areas which already have pools in them. My vision is to support other parents who want increased flexibility and a more rewarding career. I love coaching and working with people and am delighted to be able to do this with Baby Squids.
