Bianca has spent over a decade training and competing in swimming, reaching national level at a young age. Although she no longer competes, she is passionate about sharing her love for the water. She is an Austswim Qualified instructor with a specialisation in Infant & Preschool Aquatics.
Bianca began AquaBuddies in 2010 with the initial vision to provide a service for families with home swimming pools. The aim was to give parents a service that would encourage children to learn about swimming and water safety in an environment where they are most exposed – at home! In addition she wanted to create a service that was convenient for parents, especially those with more than one child. Reducing the time & stress of getting to the pool for lessons– have the instructor come to you instead!
In 2011 Bianca acquired pool space at the Wairoa School in North Bondi. She thought the pool would be a lovely environment for Baby & Toddler classes. With a passion for infant & toddler aquatics & young children of her own, she was aware of the limited services available to families with young children in the Eastern Suburbs. She has worked to develop a program specifically for young children and is dedicated to providing a high standard with the most up to date methods in swimming & water safety.
Bianca works closely with each instructor to develop programs for each child and provides continuous training and development in relation to the AquaBuddies approach.
Lessons are designed to be fun and active, but also emphases the importance of safety both in and around water!
