"I began taking my eldest son Chester to swimming classes when he was five months old and I saw the benefits to both myself and him. His confidence grew and I adored being in the water with him, watching his skills develop. It made sense then, that my other two children started swimming from a very young age too. My youngest child, Sylvie, had her first swim at just 12 days old. Besides myself, all of our teachers are mothers with little Puddle Ducks of their own and we firmly believe that there is no greater skill you can teach babies and toddlers. Being able to swim is a life skill that children will be able to benefit from for their whole lives. We are so passionate about parents and their babies or toddlers being able to learn water safety skills together and also make some new friends in the process. Coming swimming with your little one offers such valuable bonding time too, with no other distractions focus is 100% with the lesson. Swimming with your baby is extremely rewarding and when you do it with games, songs and activities it’s great fun too!" - Nicola Codd
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.
Taught in lovely warm pools with a maximum of ten children, our classes incorporate rhyme, music and movement based on extensive child development research. Our lessons are so well received that the children we teach can often swim over 10 metres before they start school.
Whether you have tried swimming with your baby already or not, please get in touch. We’re sure you’ll love our gentle, fun and nurturing classes, all designed to maximise your bonding experience. For toddlers, who may or may not have had experience in the water before, the individually tailored activities within our classes mean that your child gets the attention he or she needs in a class to suit their age and ability.
