About Us

Little Turtles Swim School started in September 2017. It was started by the owner Samantha Evans in a lane at Assumption Convent School based in Bedfordview. After a year of teaching all the lessons herself, she decided to expand and grow. Sam hired a teacher and opened two other branches. One based in Benoni and the other based in Greenside. Between Sam and the teacher they assisted with PT lessons, conducted private lessons and assisted with galas at the various branches. Sam always wanted to offer more but was very limited due to all the pools being outdoors. She went on a hunt and finally found an indoor heated pool based in Sydenham. She closed the Benoni branch and in Janaury 2020 will move the Bedfordview branch to Sydenhem. Greenside will still operate as we are very involved with the PT lessons and swim team.
