An incredible job! There aren’t many jobs that fit so perfectly around family life & allow you to be creative every single day.I used to hate the water, & would avoid it as much as possible, Which is why I took my son to lessons with Baby Paddlers. Each term that passed, I found myself having fun & actually enjoyed being in the pool! & here I am, 18 months later teaching. This is one of the reasons why my job is so amazing, you help each child enjoy being in the water, developing early swimming skills without even realising it, & also watch the adults become confident as well.Every day & lesson is completely different, & fun. Oh my it is so much fun. I laugh every day! Seeing the joy on the adult & child’s face is what makes it so special. I am thrilled to be the one to help make these magic moments happen.
I love my job as a baby swimming teacher for so many reasons; the importance of teaching water confidence to impressionable little ones is my ultimate reason. However, there are so many more. Seeing children progress, facing their fears and putting their faith in me as their teacher is an amazing privilege. Also, to work with parents who choose to give their children swimming lessons with us, to see them bond and witness them achieving so many 'firsts' gives me a huge sense of satisfaction.
Swimming has always been part of my life. I was taken swimming at 9 months old and an essential life skill turned in a hobby which turned to a passion for the water. Although I had done some teaching assisting when young, I didn’t consider teaching swimming until I had my first child and took him swimming at a few weeks old and we both loved it! Immediately I saw how enjoyable and fulfilling the teaching was thanks to a great teacher and how flexible the hours are. I love having a job that enables others (babies) to learn a skill and for me to have some worthwhile “me” time.
On behalf of Arfan, even Arfan's Dad who sometimes watches the lessons, and myself, we would like to thank you for the opportunity for Arfan to be taught his first swims by your instructor Lee. We are appreciate Lee's kindness, professionalism and patience. He is Arfan's instructor No.1!
I was a little nervous watching my husband and son as they first got in the water. Jodie made my husband (& me on the sidelines) feel completely at ease... so friendly & reassuring. It was such a beautiful introduction to swimming & our baby boy loved it! Thank you so much, we will be recommending Baby Paddlers far & wide!
Viki's patience, encouragement, brilliantly planned & pitched lessons & outstanding teaching style have had a huge impact on the remarkable progress and water confidence Jasper has gained since joining your classes - and I can confidently say that being an Assistant Headteacher myself!
Charlie and I've both really enjoyed our classes. Alex is a great teacher, calm & confident with a big smile that puts everyone instantly at ease. The lessons are fun & relaxed with songs and games and lots to keep the little ones busy and active in the water. Highly recommended for Winchester swimming classes!
I'm delighted as well as extremely sad that Evy is graduating. It's been the best experience, not only has she learnt to swim but has made some lovely friends too. Evy started at 4 months and her love of swimming has grown and grown to now a confident swimmer of 4 years, I will truly cherish our Baby Paddlers memories.
Thomas and I have had a fantastic time with Alex at Winchester Hospital hydro pool. He started when he was 7 weeks and now at nearly 6 months he doesn't have any problems with going under the water, getting splashed or swimming on his front or back. Thank you Baby Paddlers.
In my honest opinion swimming lessons with Baby Paddlers has been the best thing I've done with my baby. We have been swimming since he was 8 weeks old and now he's 11 months and so full of confidence in the water.
