Puddle Ducks Baby & Pre-school

Parent & Child Swimming Lessons (new born - 5 years old)

Our Baby & Pre-school programme is a wonderful bonding experience. Structured and progressive lesson instill water confidence and a love of swimming whilst our nurturing teachers tailor activities to your child’s abilities and needs.  Our lessons are purely child led and focus on the pace of each individual child at every stage of their development. All our instructors are fully qualified Level 2 or 3 STA and/or Swim England (ASA) instructors following these nationally recognized qualifications, then intensively trained to meet Puddle Ducks high standards.  Every year our teachers are regularly assessed by our Senior Teachers to make sure they are always on the top of their game with our constantly evolving teaching programmes.  Also our instructors hold up to date lifesaving qualifications, are safeguarding certified, DBS checked and undertake regular continual professional development courses every six months to make sure we deliver only the best experience at our Puddle Ducks lessons.

Taught in lovely warm pools within small groups our classes incorporate rhyme, water confidence, personal survival skills and unique swimming activities using the latest researched baby swimming techniques. Our lessons are so well received that the children we teach can often swim over 10 metres independently before they start school with no buoyancy aids such as arm bands or woggles. With a team of 16 experienced, passionate and knowledgeable teachers we have lots of different personalities to personalise your journey every step of the way.
