Our programme ... behind the scenes
We are confident that the Puddle Ducks teaching programme is the best in the UK and possibly the world! How can we be so sure? Because we have spent nearly 9 years developing it - and the work is still going on!
We are members of forums and discussion groups with experts from around the world (including the World Aquatic Baby and Children Network - WABC).
Our Technical Director, Ali Beckman heads up a small but elite team who carry out all our training and development to ensure that you get the best possible lesson in the world.
Why do we think it is important to continue to network at an International level and to continue to put SO much effort into the development of our programme and the standard of our teaching?
Because your baby is worth it...
Although there are many "new" techniques which the WABC do not consider safe or baby-friendly and that we deliberately avoid, there are also new ideas - developed both in-house and around the globe, which are fabulous. Ali and her team pick the best and test them thoroughly before sharing them with all our teachers. We can GUARANTEE that your baby is being taught the most up-to-date internationally accepted teaching techniques, with our unique, fun Puddle Ducks twist.
Of course, you know that our classes are designed to fit around the development of your child... but did you know that some of the activities we teach in Floaties and Splashers, develop through Kickers and Little Dippers and finally see their fruition in our school age classes?
We have a Puddle Ducks thread that runs right through our programme that just keeps on getting stronger. Every signal, every activity, even every song has a specific place in our programme.
We are always excited about new developments and will always incorporate the best ones into our classes. And we extremely proud of our current programme because we know that our Puddle Ducks babies are confident, graceful little swimmers who know how to be safe in and around water. How fabulous is that?
Please tell us your story - what is your favourite activity? What surprised you as you moved up to a new level and saw how an activity developed? What does your child love the most? What would you like to see more?
Having the best teachers in the world... this is life but swimmingly
