Hi, I originally became aware of Puddle Ducks around 8 years ago when I took a friends child to one of their swimming classes. I enjoyed the whole experience SO much that shortly after I trained as a teacher.
One of the most rewarding parts of my job at Puddle Ducks is watching the incredible journey of the young children learning to swim. Especially those who are a little fearful of the water to soon splashing around and enjoying the wonderful gift of confidence within the safe environment. We enjoy educating the children about the possible dangers of water, but in the same breath, they learn how our progressive swimming programme teaches them to enjoy their experience of swimming and become confident very quickly with their new found abilities. After all this is a wonderful skill that one day may save their lives.
Over the years I feel I've been blessed with watching the development of many young children from their very first swim in Floaties to finishing up in our Swim academy. The children's individual achievements over the years bring me a huge amount of pride, joy and gratitude for the job that I am able to do and as a team we always look forward to watching our new and existing children and parents progress together and have fun.
