Turtle Tots Central Scotland

WELCOME TO Turtle Tots Central Scotland


Turtle Tots Central Scotland was started in 2013 by me, Kirsty McNiece. After my eldest daughter developed a fear of the water, I started taking my younger daughter to baby swimming lessons and absolutely loved it. After struggling to juggle my career with being a mum of 2, I saw the opportunity to join Turtle Tots and jumped at the chance.
Here is a bit more info about me:
Family: I have two girls - Ciara and Eilidh, and a cat and a dog who are like extra toddlers!

Best thing about your job: The work life balance and it doesn’t feel like work. :-) I have the best of both worlds. I get to spend time with lovely parents and babies during the day, and I’m still around to spend time with my own children taking them to their after-school activities and spending time with them later and during the holidays when we’re not teaching.

Favourite baby swimming fact: Swimming as a baby increases stamina, lung function and cardio-vascular output, and assists in developing better eating and sleeping habits. What’s not to love?

Fact we didn’t know about you: I was once bitten by a penguin at Edinburgh Zoo.

The best thing about my job is meeting lots of wonderful families and being allowed to take part in the precious development of each of their little ones.

Winging it Mum of 2, who both think sleep is overrated. I love that I always leave the pool with a smile on my face.

Corina Hill

Best thing about my job is seeing the kids enjoying the water and getting exciting when they've learned something new, like balancing on a woggle on their own.
