Hello and a very warm welcome from Puddle Ducks Doncaster and South Humberside.
My name is Nicola and I am thrilled to welcome you to Puddle Ducks. We provide Baby & Pre-School swimming classes for children from birth, through to toddlers and pre-schoolers and Aquanatal classes for mums to be. Our fabulous team of teachers have been running classes in and around Doncaster, North East Lincolnshire and Selby, for the past two years.
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.
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.
Our Aquanatal programme is fantastic for mummies-to-be, offering a lovely combination of gentle exercise, muscle strengthening and relaxation.
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!
Please get in touch if you would like to find out more – I am confident that you and your child will have a fantastic time during the lessons. and we would love to welcome you and your little one to one of our classes soon.
Please check the dates that your class will finish for half term here x
It is half term next week across most of our pools...have fun! xx
