Meadowside School, Pool Lane, Woodchurch, Birkenhead, Wirral CH49 5LA
We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at Meadowside School – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful.
- Where possible please arrive 'swim ready' to the pool
- Swim hats must be worn for Swim Academy and googles recommended
If your child is attending our Floaties, Splashers or Kickers classes or is not yet fully toilet trained they must comply with our 'Double Nappy' policy. Please use an approved snug-fitting neoprene (or other similar fabric) swim nappy such as our Puddle Ducks swim nappy. Under this, your child will need a reusable cotton swim nappy with a disposable liner such as our Eco NappyWrap & Liner or a disposable swim nappy.
The design of our Puddle Ducks swim nappy (stretchy neoprene with snug fitting deep waistband and leg cuffs) ensures that all ‘little accidents’ stay inside the nappy with the reusable cotton swim nappy or disposable swim nappy underneath providing an extra layer of protection (and making any ‘accidents’ so much easier to get rid of!).
TIP: A swim nappy needs to be snug around the legs and waist to do its job properly (but not too tight!)
- Please ensure all outdoor shoes are removed before entering the changing rooms or poolside
- No food or drink is allowed on site, which includes the changing rooms and also the school reception area
- Please ensure that you take ALL nappies home with you.
- You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page
