A business that grows at your own pace…that’s the Puddle Ducks difference.

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.

Taking the stress out of running a business…

You can’t teach someone to swim by throwing them in the deep end and seeing if they float. Which is why we offer extensive support for anyone willing to get their feet wet. Puddle Ducks’ franchisees receive everything they need to ensure their business is a success, with help from Head Office whenever they need it:

  • Large territories across the UK
  • Flexible working hours
  • Significant earnings potential
  • Comprehensive business and teaching manuals
  • In-depth training in all areas
  • Full ongoing support with dedicated Franchise Manager

...with practical and emotional support

As well as relying on a solid programme that will bring customers to you from birth up to ten years, you can also rely on us to help you turn any negatives into positives. We know how hard it is to run a business and a family - we’ve been there! Let us show you how to enjoy all the benefits of a rewarding career that makes working a pleasure. 

From being nervous about running your own feeling confident and enjoying success

From being tired of not earning your own doing a rewarding job that contributes to the community

From being fed up with the same old routine and no knowing every day will be different and interesting

...that’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference.


What Our Franchisees Think

Faye Burrell, Owner of Puddle Ducks Wakefield, Barnsley & South Leeds

“Swimming has always been a keen activity of mine - swimming competitively and synchronised swimming as a child - and I always believed in the huge benefits of learning to swim at a young age…I came across Puddle Ducks on a website advertising franchises, and was instantly interested: it just seemed like the natural choice. After visiting Tracy and Jo and watching some classes, I was instantly hooked and could not think of a more ideal business for me. Running a Puddle Ducks franchise is hard work, but it is the BEST decision I have ever made. It seriously is the BEST JOB IN THE WORLD. I feel so lucky.”
