The Treddinick family open #1 of 8 Sydney swim schools coming this winter

The Treddinick family opened their Sydney swim school in Greenfield Park the other weekend!

Lots of excited faces were blown away by the differences compared to their local aquatic centre. Not what anyone expected in a suburban Sydney shopping centre! With a passionate family motivated to see babies and infants progress, the children of Greenfield Park are in great hands.

Paul and Janine are parents to two adult daughters, Jordon (22) and Ashlyn (19). Ashlyn will be helping manage the swim school.

Paul has an extensive background as a senior marketing and business leader, having worked for major blue-chip companies across Australia. Additionally, he has a history in swim teaching where the dream of owning his own swim school first began.

Why did they decide to purchase a franchise with JUMP!?

“The benefits of the franchise model is that the model is already up and working effectively. It also allows us to tap into the knowledge that exists amongst the current franchises,” said Paul.

“We have for many years had a love of swimming and seeing people enjoy the water. I was a swim teacher many years ago and always talked of one day opening my own swim school.

“The JUMP! model is great for teaching children to not only swim, but have a love for the water and it allows me and my family to work in a business that really can benefit people’s lives.”

Why did they decide to open in Greenfield Park?

“While there are a number of large aquatic centres in the area, we felt there was a real need for a boutique swim school specifically designed to teach children to swim in a comfortable, convenient and friendly environment. The clean and private indoor facility with warm water and small classes creates an atmosphere that is ideal for teaching babies and children the basics and joy of swimming.”

How will they balance running a business and family life?

“Having our children being a bit older, the running of the business is able to be shared with all the family. We are excited to be able to share this business experience with all our family,” said Janine.

What’s their favourite part about owning a JUMP!?

“My favourite part is actually seeing the smile in children’s faces when they achieve something new in the water. It may be as simple as putting their face in the water and blowing bubbles or paddling to the wall, but the joy they get from achieving something new really makes it all worthwhile.”
