 "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 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.

Puddle Ducks Swim Academy

We also run classes for older children in our Swim Academy classes, so we will be with you throughout your whole journey from baby to independent swimmer and who knows, maybe a future Olympic champion.

Whether your child is coming from a pre-school class, or has never been in the water before, you can be sure that they will get the attention that they need as our activities are individually tailored to suit each child.

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

    How can you help keep our pools clean and healthy?

    Chlorine is used in all of our pools to keep them free of nasty bacteria that can be hazardous to you and your little one.

    It's important to shower before entering the pool as when chlorine mixes with other substances, such as make-up, body lotions, bodily fluids etc it forms by-products which float above the surface and can be inhaled...

What Our Customers Think

Today was Rose's 2nd lesson and already there is a huge difference in her confidence with the water, I can't believe how quickly she's learning and having fun with it she's telling everyone about what she's learnt at swimming and I don't hear the end of it all week. I'm so glad I made the choice to travel to Epworth I haven't regretted it. Sarah, Mum to Rose
