Puddle Ducks Baby & Pre-school
Our Baby & Pre-school programme is a wonderful bonding experience. Progressive lesson plans instil a 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 STA and/or Swim England (ASA) instructors following these nationally recognized qualifications, our instructors are then intensively trained to meet Puddle Ducks high standards. All our teachers are regularly assessed 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, DBS checked and undertake regular continual professional development courses to make sure we deliver only the best experience at our Puddle Ducks lessons.
Taught in lovely warm pools with a maximum of nine children; 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.
