Meet the Teachers at St. Michael's Prep School

  • Janina



    I have always loved to swim, I just love the feeling of being in the water. I started both my boys swimming when they were 12 weeks old and found it to be a beautiful experience (they are 2 and 4 now and both adore the water too). I started with Puddle Ducks as a Poolside Assistant and then went on to do my teacher training the first chance I could. Its an amazing job on so many levels; seeing the babies relaxing in the water for the first time with their carers, to seeing Dippers achieve fully independent swims is just so fulfilling. I also love the fact that we not only teach children swimming techniques but also how to keep themselves safe in the water – I am so lucky to be able to do a job I love that also allows me so much time with my family.

    I have two children, a 6yr old mermaid and an 18 month old who is a mermaid in training... She just loves being in the water and I take them both swimming regularly as a fun activity, knowing that being able to swim is a really important life skill.

    My background is as an IT Trainer within the NHS for 10+ years, but more recently I've made the lifestyle choice to work on the deli counter at Waitrose! I have always thought that teaching these skills would be such a rewarding job so when the opportunity to become a Puddle Ducks teacher came up I jumped at the chance!

    I'm looking forward to teaching your little ones these skills and seeing them develop through safe, fun Puddle Ducks activities, making for lots of happy, confident water loving children.

    I look forward to meeting you and your little swimmers soon!

    From a young age I've always loved being in the water, the freedom, the fun...

    It was a huge part of my childhood that has continued into my adult life - I enjoy swimming for fitness and scuba diving when I get the chance.

    My passion has always been to work with children but unfortunately the opportunity didn't arise for me, and I ended up stuck in the monotony of commuting to the City to work in an office.

    After the birth of my son I knew something had to change and when the chance to work for Puddle Ducks arose, I haven't looked back!

    Working with children and teaching them such valuable skills in the water? The best job in the world!
