🎉 We are back in action and in full swing after the summer which means Piranha of the Week is back! 🎉
PIRANHA OF THE WEEK IS..... KAI STANDER!
We have had the fantastic pleasure of knowing this Piranha since he was just a few days old- With little Kai's journey beginning watching from his car seat. The stander family have been part of the Piranha troops for many years with their eldest son Jarno also completing his swim journey with us. 😁
Both Jarno and Kai have been very fortunate to have dotted dad Jako Stander and super mum Ewa Stander cheering them on every week. The boys make them so proud and it is lovely to see their enthusiasm in the children's learning. They are with us week in week out as they value the importance of this life skill for their boys. We are very privileged to have such lovely long standing clients in the Standers!
From a little baby Kai has always stolen our hearts with his adorable ways! Particular his big Piranha Danielle who he has a special bond. 💙
Kai has always been a super young and confident swimmer, even posing for photos under the water when he was younger. He has an irresistible charm and is lucky to return home with Ewa most nights as everyone wants to take him home 🐒💙
The biggest shock was when Kai turned from a baby to a little person who would give the girls on reception a wink and say "hey ladies."😂
His success is fuelled by high fives, laughter and a few cuddles here and there to boost his confidence. Kai's sensitive character means sometimes he looses confidence in the holiday breaks only to return will full confidence when he sees Danielle and leaves his mother speechless! 🐒
He responds so well to instruction and loves lots of play and fun with his lessons.
From the age of 1.5 years he was swimming around on a shark fin unaided.
From 2 years old he could jump and swim back to the side, demonstrate a fall in and get back to safety and enter the water to roll on to his back for safety. His drown prevention skills at short range have always been excellent.⭐️
Last week Kai smashed a massive milestone and turned from little confident swimmer in to little fish. Coming up to breathe and achieving significant distance using his "super long giraffe legs." 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Our little swimmers suddenly reach a point where everything clicks and then there is no stopping them! 🎉
We cannot wait to see how Kai continue this term and watch his hard work pay off!
Well done mummy, daddy and Jarno for cheering this little man on... keep up the good work Kai! 💙 ...
Ewa StanderOh my ..... thank you so much for such lovely words about our Kai and his achievements at swimming with you 🙂 and yes it's been few years now that wee by week we've seen Kai enjoying his fun with Daniele in the water. And funny that this summer on our holidays Kai wasn't interested in any swimming 😞 so it was a massive surprise on our first lesson back that Kai just got in set of and enjoyed it so much. I really didn't see that coming !!!! Thank you Danielle for your hard work and helping Kai loving water and swimming as much as he does:-) see you on Monday xxx 🐠💦🏊💙
