Puddle Ducks Merseyside and Puddle Ducks South East Wales launches

Welcome Helen and Sarah!

We’re delighted to announce that Puddle Ducks classes are now available in Merseyside and South East Wales!

South East Wales franchisee Helen Hicks has been teaching Baby & Pre-school swimming for Puddle Ducks Bristol & Bath for three years, and is now branching out on her own to bring the Puddle Ducks Difference to swimmers in Newport and Cardiff.  She loved the ethos, the brand and working in that environment, so she decided to buy a franchise. In her own words, “She couldn’t see any reason why she shouldn’t”.

"There's nothing that beats the feeling of seeing a nervous child blossom into a fabulous little swimmer, or a tiny baby having their first lesson.  It's a privilege to be able to work with children and their parents and to facilitate such special bonding time".

Over time Helen will do less and less teaching but she doesn’t want to give it up completely as she really enjoys it and that’s the whole point; she is helping children learn lifesaving skills which she finds really rewarding.

Merseyside franchisee Sarah Cadwaladr took her children to Puddle Ducks classes and has previously worked in hospitality at Manchester United Football Club. When it was time to go back to work after her daughter was born, a friend suggested she consider becoming a Puddle Ducks franchisee to address her work-life balance; “The opportunity to become a franchisee and work with a brand that represents many of my own personal values and ideals was simply too good to miss and so my dream was born, and result is that I have just launched my very own business.”

“Puddle Ducks feels like it is in my blood; as a corporate mum, Puddle Ducks has always provided me with the unique opportunity to enjoy a weekly spot of selfless quality time with my children away from technology and all the distractions that so easily spoil ‘that moment’”.
