"I am delighted to introduce myself as franchisee for Hampshire and West Sussex having started my Puddle Ducks journey as a customer swimming with both my sons from just a few weeks of age. They have both thrived in the Puddle Ducks programme and have become confident, safe and beautiful swimmers. 

Having experienced the unique and personal approach that the Puddle Ducks programme offers through its constantly evolving lessons I jumped at the opportunity to take on the franchise when it became available and I look forward to teaching your babies and children to swim and love the water as much as my sons do"

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 ten 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.

 Puddle Ducks Swim Academy
We also run classes for older children in our Swim Academy classes, so we will be with you throughout your whole journey from baby to independent swimmer and who knows, maybe a future Olympic champion.

Whether your child is coming from a pre-school class, or has never been in the water before, you can be sure that they will get the attention that they need as our activities are individually tailored to suit each child.

What Our Customers Think

"Having been a poor swimmer as a child I was determined not to repeat it with my kids. So we set off trying to find a decent swim school, we had taster sessions and trial lessons in a couple of places. But after a number of somewhat pointless lessons with other swim schools we found Puddle Ducks. The lessons are with parent and child in the water so you can help set the pace, the instructors are excellent adapting to each child's needs and being supportive empathetic and helpful. We had one child who really took to them really well and another who enjoyed swimming but not his lessons. However while on holiday he fell into the pool and despite being at arms reach he'd instinctively used what he'd learnt at Puddle Ducks and saved himself before I could. Lots of fun great environment to teach your children to swim."
