Our Instructors

All of our teachers understand young children and have a huge amount of experience supporting a variety of abilities. Each of them specialise in the baby, toddler and pre-schooler age groups. Our swimming teachers are the main reason so many of our Squidlets come back term after term.

Mum to Taylor & Alexa, and brilliant with all ages. Kristina loves her job and adores teaching and gets a real buzz from seeing the little ones progress from babies through to independent swimmers.

Katie Tucker Swimming Teacher

Originally a customer of Baby Squids with her little boy Reggie, and watching his ever growing confidence in the water, Kate took the step to train as a swimming instructor. She loves to see the confidence for both the children and parents grow stronger week after week, and watch everybody have a fun and happy experience whilst learning a very important life skill.
