Home / About Us / Swim Teachers / Victoria Kennedy

Hello, I’m Victoria founder of Otter Tots Swim School. I started the swim school 19 years ago and was one of the first teachers to establish a baby and pre-school swim school in the uk. The STA pre-school badges were tried and tested with our swim school and then launched internationally. I trained to become a swim tutor and examiner with the STA and enjoy training new teachers so we all work to the same methods.

I teach myself at most venues and work closely with my small group of teachers to ensure that all children have the opportunity to progress and reach their full potential in the water.

I’m passionate about teaching children to swim and love to see their smile on their faces when they achieve a new skill in the water.

I can be contacted personally by any parent who wishes to discuss their child’s journey in the water.

What do you enjoy most about the lessons?

I love to see the parents faces when they enter the water for the first time with their tiny baby. They are very nervous and then go away with a big smile on their face. I also enjoy seeing the progression from the toddlers taking their first unaided swim.
