Clare Saunders

Learn to Swim Teacher

I have a varied experience working with children that includes: Nursery Nurse Teaching, Nannying, Primary School Teaching and Learn to Swim Instructing. Yes, I am no ‘spring chicken’ but guarantee incredible passion, creativity, hard work and fun! I joined Little Fish Swim School in 2018 but have been teaching Learn to Swim as well as baby and infants since 2012.                                                                                                                                                                                 

What I love most about what I do: I strive to gain a healthy and positive rapport with all students; especially those lacking in confidence. I have been called a, “Child Whisperer” by a previous employer…quick to ease the apprehensions of a new student. 

When I’m not in the pool you’ll find me: Attempting to be creative in the kitchen or trying activities researched on Pinterest! I would love to study photography; especially black and white landscapes.

My perfect weekend: I enjoy watching movies and would like to visit Yatala Drive-In Theatre one day soon. Not a fan of Sci-Fi but will generally watch most genres. I particularly like Historical Period Drama, Thrillers and Rom-Com. I also love visiting outdoor markets and scenic places like Montville and Maleny. A drive to the Sunshine Coast, bushwalk and picnic is heaven!
