Growing up around the water, Linde swam competitively until she was a teenager. Linde is an avid sailor, as well as sports management professional and master of culture and change with 7 years of experience working for Royal Netherlands Sea Rescue Institute (KNRM) and is acutely aware of the dangers that water can hold. She’s thrilled to offer your child one-one private selfrescue lessons and feels the need for such lifesaving skills is a must for every family around water.
Pauline, Blaricum & Hilversum
Pauline’s teachings come from a space of patience and love. These qualities support her work as a Holistic Self Rescue instructor. Her energy and enthusiasm and absolute desire to work with children has now become a reality. We are delighted that Pauline has joined our Children Of The Water family as an instructor, sharing our mission to make every child safe and happy in the water.
As a child, Helma spent as much time in the water as she possibly could. After receiving all her swimming certificates she continued her journey in the water by gaining a variety of degrees at the life guard association. When her second child was born, Helma realised she wanted to work in the water with children and got her Swim Instructors degree. She’s been working in the water for over 15 years now with babies and children. We are very proud Helma is part of our wonderful team! Helma loves to teach and joins us in our mission, to make sure every child feels safe and happy in the water!
