Turtle Tots Perthshire
Turtle Tots Perthshire 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.
Mum of 2 girls, plus a cat and a dog who are like extra toddlers! I love the the work life balance and teaching little ones to swim doesn't feel like work.
