My passion for swimming was re-ignited when I took my baby girl Olivia to classes, this was the highlight of our week, the fun we had, the skills we learned and the pleasure of bonding with my beautiful baby girl in the water was just amazing.
This planted a seed for further down the line when I was looking for a child friendly business venture to embark on.
I found Puddle Ducks, fell in Love and that was back September 2009. Since then my business has grown and expanded and I have the most amazing team of teachers who now have the pleasure of welcoming you to our classes.
Swimming with Puddle Ducks is fun, safe and educational, this skill could save your child’s life, so it is very important that you choose wisely where you take your baby, toddler or child to swimming classes.
