Meet the teachers at Treetops Cottages

  • Nicola Riley

    Nicola Riley

    Senior Baby & Pre-school teacher

    I joined the Puddle Ducks team as a Poolside Assistant in 2015 and completed my training to become a Swimming Teacher in 2016. I teach baby and pre-school classes at John Whitgift Academy, Treetops Cottages, Ivy House and Epworth pool. 

    The best part of my job is seeing each child develop

    A mum of two myself, aged 7 & 4, I love outdoor adventure with my family, meeting up for tea and cake with friends. I have worked with children since the age of 16 and love it. Seeing each child develop in to little independent swimmers is amazing. 

  • Jamara Hignett

    Swim Academy teacher

    I joined the Puddle Ducks team in 2018 and currently teach Swim Academy, although I am training to teach baby & pre-school classes too. 

    Prior to this I was an intensive care nurse, something i'd done for 14 years, but I love water and children, so ventured out in a career in swim teaching. I love seeing the excitement of the children during the lessons and helping the nervous children become confident in the pool. 

    I'm an Aussie mum and wife to 2 little boys and a husband. In my spare time I love to bake celebration cakes and spend time with family and friends.
