 I began taking my 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. 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 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. 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 wonder ful 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.   

We look forward to welcoming you into the Puddle Ducks family very soon!

What Our Customers Think

I would like to say a big thank you to Puddle Ducks and our teacher Liz. We have been going to Puddle Ducks for coming up to a year now and Olivia has come along so much in that time. We recently had a holiday in Centre Parks and the way complete strangers commented on how confident Olivia was in the water was lovely and made me so proud. Nicola, Mum to Olivia
