(Friday and Sunday classes)
Swimming has always been a huge part of my life after living abroad in my childhood where it was a daily activity. I also swam competitively as a teenager.
When I was pregnant with my first child Maggie I was desperate to introduce her to swimming which I did when she was just 6 weeks old.
We both loved it and baby swimming quickly became my new obsession (that and my baby of course.)
After deciding that corporate world of marketing was no longer my calling....I started working for the franchise spreading the Puddle Ducks word. It was fab, I used to go along to anywhere and everywhere there would be baby groups and events and just talk to new parents about the benefits of baby swimming and the importance of this life skill.
When a Baby and Pre-School teaching vacancy came up, I jumped at it...even though I had only had my twins two months earlier....did I mention? I am slightly obsessed with Puddle Ducks?
The reason I love my job so very much is because of just how much the children and parents get out of our classes. Its great fun! Its wonderful when a swimmer achieves a new skill and its just the icing on the cake to know you are not only teaching a life skill, but also personal survival skill. I love my classes and hope you will too.
