WE all know how important it is to teach our KindyTots to swim as early as possible in order for them to be safe in the pool and indeed, anywhere around water.
_So we are extremely proud to have Sue Ward on board as our go-to swimming adviser and expert on all things swimming! Sue has been teaching kids to swim for almost 2O years and holds degrees in Human Movement Studies and Teaching Physical Education and Primary Classroom. She is also the driving force behind Get Set & Go! (Australia) Swim School in The Gap, Brisbane. Sue specialises in teaching swimming and sports skills in a co-operative, non-threatening environment. "I founded the swim school after I observed that many children did not get involved in sport or recreation due to an earlier negative experience" she said.
