My name is Claire; Coach Claire to my swimmers and mommy to my two beautiful children. I am a STA qualified Baby and Preschool swimming teacher and an Early Years Educator who is incredibly passionate about Early Childhood Education both in and out of the swimming pool! I owned a nursery back in South Africa for 8 years but whilst taking my children to swimming lessons realised I could combine two of my greatest loves: water and children and went on to qualify as a swimming instructor and haven't looked back since. I have headed up a Baby Swimming program in Dubai for the past 3 years and realised the massive need for Self Rescue in the region as we are surrounded by water wherever we go. I am so excited to be a part of the Children of the Water family and provide Holistic Self Rescue in Dubai. Swimming is more than just a sport: it's a life skill that each and every child deserves a chance to learn and enjoy
