Jasmijn grew up spending her summers in France surfing where she met Zoe whilst working at a surf camp. Having a photography & art background Jasmijn worked as a talent development teacher in primary education in The Hague, teaching photography, arts, technique and robotics. As a part of the Children of the Water family she combines her passion for the water with her passion for teaching children.
Sylvana's energy and love for children and the water is immediately clear for all to see. She brings a unique quality to the water where her skills as a Self Rescue instructor and undeniable vibrant personality combine to make the children feel safe and calm. A Mother to her little boy Zenn, Sylvana also holds a qualification in special pedagogical work allowing her to specifically work with children. Having completed the Self Rescue and Swim Float Swim course with Zenn she therefore, understands the process of the parents and embraces this into her teachings, a deep understanding that the emotion and energy parents bring to the water can transfer to their child. Sylvana embodies Children of the Waters holistic approach in her communication with each family and child in and out of the water. Sylvana also brings a lot of fun into her teachings so that the course is not just learning a highly specialised life saving technique, but she also makes the process really fun!
