Hello and a very warm welcome to Puddle Ducks Greater Manchester!

We’re very proud to be the only swim school to provide a complete swimming journey from the very start of life as a bump in our Aqua Natal classes through to swimming classes from birth to pre-school age and Swim Academy classes for primary school children.  Our programmes are designed by leading baby and child swimming experts and are held at pools across Greater Manchester, Stockport, Oldham & Tameside, including our own purpose-built hydro pool – Aqua Nurture.

Our aim is to provide you and your little one with the very best swimming classes. Puddle Ducks classes are taught by highly trained teachers who are passionate about what they do.  Puddle Ducks classes are taught how children learn best – through fun, singing, rhyme repetition and key word association – and without the use of buoyancy aids. All activities are tailored individually to each child to ensure that they build a lifelong love of swimming. That’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference.

Whether your child is coming from a toddler swimming class, or has never been in the water before, all our activities are tailored to suit your child's age and confidence and are full of songs, rhymes, games and activities, working towards your little one swimming independently, safely and happily. That’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference.

Our Aquanatal programme is also fantastic for mummies-to-be, offering a lovely combination of gentle exercise, muscle strengthening and relaxation.

We are Suzanne and Gary and we’re very proud to be delivering Puddle Ducks to Manchester, Oldham and surrounding areas.  I was a competitive swimmer and as a family with two young children we are all keen watersports enthusiasts – our children have grown up knowing the importance of learning to swim and being water safety aware.  We think it’s fantastic that water safety and personal survival skills are a central part of the Puddle Ducks programme – right from birth.

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

"My two year old has been swimming with Puddle Ducks since he was four weeks old and it is one of the highlights of our week. When his little sister came along I couldn't get her into the class time I needed at Puddle Ducks, so I booked her in with another swimming lesson provider. I knew I would miss the lovely instructors that had taught our boy, but I assumed all providers would be similar - I was wrong! I missed the nicer facilities (and the new Aqua Nurture centre is amazing!) and the emphasis on the babies having a good time as well as learning a hugely important life skill. I'm so glad I could get my little girl into a puddleducks class this term, she loved her lesson today, and it was so much more enjoyable for both of us. Thank you Puddle Ducks!" Jackie
