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 Six – Wednesday 24th January
Went to look at a new pool today with my Franchisee and the teacher who will be teaching there to finalise the arrangements so that I can write the PSOP (Pool Safety Operating Procedures) for the new venue (never written one before!). I needed information such as access for customers, what the pool is like, what the plant room looks like, etc. We’re launching Baby & Pre-school classes in 3 weeks – exciting and scary as it’s the first pool to be launched that I’ve managed in my role as Head of Teaching.
I came home and checked my emails, responding to a teacher who was asking advice on something a parent did during lessons. In the evening I took my boys to their Swim Academy lessons (I need my daily chlorine fix!), back home to print registers and prepare lesson plans for the next day. Even though I ‘know’ what activity it is just by looking at the lesson plan, I always read the manual to make sure I’m not becoming complacent and I’m still delivering the best lesson I possibly can.
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.
