Who We Are


The Wendy Fereday Swim School has been teaching swim lessons in Santa Barbara for nearly 25 years. We work to ensure every child that comes through our doors leaves safe around water. We pair rigorous swim lesson curriculum with caring relationships to build our students' confidence in their own ability.


Who We Are Looking For


We can teach you how to teach (though we love applicants with experience), but we are mostly concerned with first finding people that can care well for others and enjoy learning as much as teaching. Some questions to ask yourself before applying: Do you like working with children? Do you like learning about how people learn? Are you a people person?




Our instructors and staff are the heart of our business. We invest in our employees believing that their welfare means a better experience for our clients.
