MEET OUR FOUNDER

Gemma is our original Swimming Wonder and the heart behind Swimming Wonders.
Teaching since 2008, Gemma holds ASA Level 1 and Level 2 Swimming teacher, STA level 2 Baby And Pre- School, HABC Level 2 International, and Dubai Award in Pool Lifeguarding.

 

She designed the Swimming Wonders program through research and experience and continuously reviews it to make sure all the team always teaches the best techniques and exercises which are most beneficial for the little ones. She is originally from Spain and Mum to 2 amazing kids.

In her own words

“I have always had a passion for swimming and love being with babies so once I had my first child I decided to quit my successful full-time job in London and qualified as a Baby and Toddler swimming instructor. I have been teaching baby swimming since then and through dedication, passion, and a drive to teach the little ones all the basics and benefits of early swimming, Swimming Wonders was born.”

 

THE WONDER TEAM

Our experienced and specialized coaches are passionate about what we do and this is why we can proudly say we are Dubai’s Baby and Toddler Swim specialists. Our courses are 6 weeks long. This allows families the flexibility to plan their holidays, return to work, account for changes in their babies' routines and any unforeseen circumstances. You do not have to commit upfront to a full term.

When I am in the water with our little wonders I feel so happy and proud. Helping them grow their confidence, the fun, the happiness and the safety in the water is priceless!”Claudia is currently working on furthering her career in health and fitness and gaining her Level 3 personal training certificate so she can follow her dream of working with pre-natal and post-natal mothers.

Kristel Bourgeois

My L.O. has his weekly swimming classes on Friday. It’s also a moment of q-time with his dad. We are so happy we discovered Swimming wonders as our son improved enormously during 2 courses. It’s a small group of children so the coaches can really oversee what the children need and where they need more practice. They are always in a good mood and very encouraging towards the children and parents. Thank you swimming wonders!
