What Our Customers Think

Tracey's feedback - mum to Holly (aged six)

Puddle Ducks is a brilliant swimming school, which I would definitely recommend to anyone. My daughter had previously attended a swimming class which had unfortunately pushed her to too far too soon and caused her to have a fear of not being able to swim in a pool where she could not touch the floor. Puddle Ducks have been able to encourage my daughter and give her her confidence back and she is advancing well through all their classes. At the age of six she has has already completed her 25 metres and cannot wait to progress further. Puddle Ducks also teach the children safety and life saving which are important life skills. The teachers and staff are so friendly and efficient, it is a perfect place to learn to swim.
