Meet the team
Hi I'm Kate, owner of Turtle Tots West Kent and I'm so excited to welcome you to our wonderful swimming school!
I started the school after being hooked from taking my daughter swimming and decided a career change was in order! I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment since setting up the school, its been amazing to see some of the original babies progress through from the baby programme and into the toddler programme - its been a privilege to watch them develop whilst learning such an amazing life skill.
I really hope I meet you and your little turtle in the pool soon!
Hi, I'm Nikki and I teach our classes at the very toasty Orpington Hospital!
I started taking my son Jack to Turtles Tots with Kate when he was a few months old and we have now completed the Baby Programme and are currently in the Toddler Programme! I have loved every single lesson!
I cant wait to share your water experience with you and your little turtles and together make them safe and the best little swimmers we can while having so much fun doing it!
Hi there my name is Andrea, I'm a Mum to 14 year old twins, 1 girl and 1 boy, and I have recently joining Turtle Tots as a Parent and Child Instructor.
I was looking for an opportunity to expand my swim teaching knowledge earlier in the year when an opportunity came available at Turtle Tots, I started the training programme in August 2018, qualifying 5 weeks later. I absolutely love working with the babies and toddlers, seeing how they progress so quickly at such a young age and of course having enormous fun in the process.
My name is Ria, i have a great passion for swimming and the water. I swam competitively from the age of 7 and joined a synchronized swimming group when i was 10 where I competed all around the U.K and even Germany. I was selected for the south east regional team which meant many hours and days training. I then become a synchronized swimming coach and judge. As i got older i went to university and trained to be an early years teacher, where i worked with under 2s for 4 years and then with pre school for 3 years. I want to bring the love i have of swimming to many others and show the fun you can have in the water.
