Our Teachers

At Little Monsters, all our teachers aim to balance teaching important water safety skills with a fun and friendly approach.

Just like at child care centres or schools, instructor’s teaching styles vary to reflect their personalities. We have warm and fuzzy teachers, friendly and firm teachers, and old school strict teachers. We understand that sometimes the best outcomes are achieved when we match swimmers with a teacher whose style is similar to your parenting style. If you feel like your swimmer may benefit from a particular teaching style please contact us to let us know.

All swim teachers that work at Little Monsters Swim School have the nationally recognised AUSTSWIM qualification.
