Our ways of recruiting swim teachers

Constantly keeping our eyes open for mature, energetic, fun-loving, creative and enthusiastic people.

At Finns Boutique Swim Centre, we take pride in child-centered approach. A child-centered approach encourages children to take learning aquatic education & swimming programs into their own hands in a safe and comfortable water environment. Our aquatic education & swimming programs are based on the belief that children are active participants in their learning. Contrary to the conventional swimming curriculum involving strict soldier-like routine, we take “water play” seriously with active listening and observation of each individual child. The aim is to create a curriculum based on water play activities, planned for each individual child in different age groups, according to the child’s attributes and needs, at his/her own pace.

We pick teachers with enthusiasm, passion and finds satisfaction working with children. Satisfaction is something that we all want from our jobs. Working with children offers the potential to find exactly that, especially if you love kids. And there are plenty of possibilities. When it comes to careers involving children, the variety is wider than ever. 


These teachers are tasked with supporting basic cognitive, behavioral, social and physical developmental milestones, patience, creativity, a love for the field in child development and early childhood education.
