Rebecca teaches for Puddle Ducks Nottinghamshire, North Leicestershire and South Yorkshire, and has risen through the ranks to become Head of Teaching for the franchise. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be sharing with you a week in the life of Rebecca, focusing on one day per week, learning about what she does on a day to day basis and how she spends her down time.
Day Three – Sunday 21st January
The weather forecast says ‘snow’ today…..I’ll believe it when I see it, we always seem to miss out here in Nottingham, despite everywhere else having seen snow this winter – can’t help but think ‘it’s not fair!’ An early start as I have got 12 lessons today (11 of those are Swim Academy).
Despite it snowing (sort of!) all lessons were full and a good day was had by all, even if my hair felt slightly ‘frozen’ as the air temp was quite cool!
I thought I’d be able to relax tonight and not look at lesson plans as I’m teaching later tomorrow so decided to chill and watch TV. Checked my phone before going to bed to pick up a message from my Franchisee asking me to work at a different pool tomorrow – with an early start! Better start prepping my lesson plans now then, it’s a new week of lesson plans so need to look at the Teaching Manual, print off registers and check if any children have medical conditions – bed can wait!
Teaching with Puddle Ducks
We’re always on the lookout for hard workers with a love of water and children, who care enough about giving babies and children a gift of complete freedom and pleasure in the water, and want to give them something that is both a skill for life and a life-saving skill.

Franchising with Puddle Ducks
Just like the children we teach, a Puddle Ducks’ franchise is completely unique. It’s an investment that allows you to do something you love and turn it into a profitable business.
All of our franchisees start off teaching in the water, so they can fully immerse themselves in the product and truly understand their customers. But ultimately, the aim is for you to manage a team of teachers, taking ownership of your own territory.
We’ll be there to help every step of the way. It’s up to you how quickly you go from dipping your toes in to diving in at the deep end.
