Our Star Teacher for Spring 2024 is Holly!

Thank you for all of the wonderful nominations we received for our Spring 2024 Star Teacher competition.

Choosing a winning nomination  

Nominations this term were judged by Chloe Radcliffe, who runs Bloom Baby Classes in Tameside and Glossop. 

Chloe comments: "Thank you for letting me judge the competition, I really enjoyed reading through all of the lovely nominations! I found it so tricky to pick just one from the nominations as they’re all so lovely! What a wonderful set of teachers Puddle Ducks has!

I’ve chosen this one as the winning one as it is clear the child absolutely loves his teacher and is excited to go swimming because of her.  It also says how she anticipates the needs of every child in class - I think it's so important for a teacher to know each child’s individual needs and abilities so they get the most out of their lessons."

Suzanne Horton, Franchise Owner of Puddle Ducks Greater Manchester comments:

“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate their teachers for the Star Teacher award and to thank Chloe for judging the award for us this term.  It really is so lovely to read all of the fantastic comments our customers have to say about our amazing teachers, and testament to how passionate they are about their role! Well done to Holly, we are all very proud of you and you thoroughly deserve the award." 

The winning nomination

The winning nomination came from Dante's mother, Renata, who swims at our Aqua Nurture pool in Gee Cross. 

"We nominate Holly. Holly is a real star! Dante loves his classes and Holly makes all of us feel so happy and comfortable. He is always excited when we get to Aqua Nurture for our lesson. She is not only professional, but she knows exactly how to communicate with children and their parents and anticipates the needs of every child during the class. We’ve tried a couple of different teachers, but when you tell Dante that Holly is waiting for him at the pool, the smile on his face speaks for itself!"

This term's wonderful winning nomination will now be sent on to our Head Office to be entered into the National Puddle Ducks Star Teacher award, good luck Holly!
