Why Bubbling Fish?
About the founder, Nirala Rai
I am a mother of two girls who are keen swimmers. When my daughter was 6 years old, she was forced to jump at the deep end of the pool by her then teacher. This made her dislike swimming and she refused to get back to water. Heartbroken, I went to Partha who suggested that I do the AUSTSWIM course and teach my daughter myself. So I did my AUSTSWIM TSW course under Ceri's guidance and started teaching both my daughters at Bangalore Club. They love the water now.
I now teach at multiple centers. This gives me immense satisfaction than my IT job of 10 years which I eventually quit.
I am also an SSI verified advanced diver and conduct ocean expedition trips to Maldives where I introduce kids to the ocean. I am a keen fitness enthusiast and constantly look for new things to learn.
Watching this, club members showed interest and liking towards my "AUSTSWIM" way of teaching and wanted me to teach their kids as well. This encouraged me to take up swim teaching as a profession.
"Bubbling Fish is a great program that teaches water safety skills to infant & children. I enrolled my son when he was 6 months old, and he's learned so much from the program and more! The instructor is extremely knowledgeable and patient. Her methods are interactive and fun so it was easy for my son to get along with her classes. He is now 2 and is still proud member of Bubbling Fish program."
