"My passion for baby and child swimming began when my eldest son Jack and I started attending lessons when he was just nine weeks old. From day one it became the highlight of our week, a special bonding time that surprisingly I enjoyed as much as him!
Thanks to the incredible Puddle Ducks programme, both of my children were able to swim at least 5m before they started school, but more importantly, they have a huge amount of respect for the water, absolutely LOVE swimming and can swim more gracefully and beautifully than most adults!
I am extremely proud to be part of the amazing and nationally recognised Puddle Ducks swimming programmes and to be bringing them to babies, pre-schoolers, primary school children and mums-to-be in Dorset & West Hants." Jane Bozic
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 nine 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.
