Values & Vision

We want your children to create and have happy memories at Splashing Stars Swim School. To achieve this, we abide by a set of values that we believe will let them shine in and out of the swimming pool.

We believe in speaking life and positive words to your children. We want to encourage them and build their confidence so that they have a strong foundation for the future.

Our Core Values are:

Happy swimming kids
Kids swimming under water

Our Vision

Our business is not a business. It is a space where we, our swimmers, the parents, grandparents, or friends of the family can enjoy spending time, and where there is a sense of camaraderie. We want to make sure that our business values and our ‘why’ (what drives us) becomes an extension and will have a positive affect on our swimmers, and our community. We believe that nothing that we do or achieve is out of our own strength, but that each day and each opportunity is a gift given to us from above. We therefore want to invite you to become part of the Splashing Stars Family, and see that we work according to a set of values that is hard to find anywhere else.
