Hello and a warm welcome to Puddle Ducks Gloucestershire.
I started Puddle Ducks Gloucestershire in 2012 after initially being a Puddle Ducks customer and subsequently teaching for Puddle Ducks in Bristol. I’ve seen firsthand with my own children, the joy and confidence our lessons bring.
We provide Baby & Pre-school swimming classes (from birth, through to toddlers and pre-schoolers), Swim Academy classes for primary school children and Aquanatal classes for mums-to-be. Contact us to find out about classes in and around Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stonehouse, Stroud and Ullenwood.
Whether you've never tried swimming with your baby or if you're a dab hand in the pool, please get in touch. We're sure you'll love our gentle, fun and nurturing classes, all designed to maximise your bonding experience. We understand no two children are the same, and as such our activities are tailored towards the individual, working through progressions at a pace your little one is happy with.
We also run classes for older children in our Swim Academy so we'll be with you through the whole journey from baby to independent swimmer and who knows, maybe a future Olympic champion! Whether your child is coming from a toddler swimming class, or has never been in the water before, all our activities are individually tailored so that your child gets the attention he or she needs.
Our Aquanatal lessons are also fantastic for mummies-to-be. They offer a lovely combination of gentle exercise, muscle strengthening and relaxation.
So, if you would like us to be with you and your little one through the journey to confident, independent swimmer, please get in touch.
We look forward to welcoming you to our classes soon.
The Baby Journey
The Baby Journey was born after two midwives decided to set up the antenatal classes they wished they’d had.
Hannah and Jules are the proud parents of The Baby Journey, and are both working midwives with 20 years experience between them.
Both have young children which gives them a unique combination of midwife expertise, plus mummy insight (basically a pretty good idea of what it’s like from both sides of the fence).
The whole point of The Baby Journey is to bring to you what you need - as expecting and new parents. The team carried out thorough market research to ask real life parents of little babies, what it was they were after and wished they’d known. And so The Baby Journey was born, and is to this day, committed to delivering a comprehensive and tailored service to meet the real needs of new parents.
