Hello and a very warm welcome to Puddle Ducks in Dorset and the New Forest.

Find out about baby swimming, toddler and pre-school swimming and child swimming classes in and around Bournemouth, Poole, Blandford, Wimborne, West Moors, Christchurch, New Milton, Brockenhurst and surrounding areas in Dorset and the New Forest.

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. 

With activities perfectly tailored to suit your child’s age and confidence, our lessons are full of songs, rhymes, games and activities working towards your little one swimming independently, safely and happily, both above and under the water.  That’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out more – I would love to welcome you and your child to our classes soon.

What Our Customers Think

"Puddle Ducks is one of the highlights of Lila's week. She loves to sing the songs at home and gets really excited when she knows it's time to get ready for it. As a parent, it's lovely to see such improvements in her confidence and ability. When each of us as parents has the chance to participate it makes those smiley moments even more worthwhile." Julian
