Hello and a very warm welcome to Puddle Ducks Hampshire and West Sussex.

We provide swimming classes for babies and pre-school children.  Find out about our classes in Cosham, Chichester, Arundel, Littlehampton and Worthing.

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.

All our classes are perfectly tailored to suit your child’s age and confidence level, and are full of songs, rhymes, games and activities working towards your little one swimming independently, safely and happily, both under and above the water. Within each lesson we tailor each activity to your child individually which we believe is the really crucial element that will mean your child or baby not only has lots of fun, but learns and develops at their own pace.

We can’t wait to welcome you to one of our lovely warm pools and hope that you enjoy your journey with us.

Our term time office hours are:

Monday - Friday: 9.00 – 13.00 Messages and emails will be picked up out of hours and during the weekend so please ensure you leave a message so we can call you back or reply by email as soon as we are able.  

Office hours vary during the school holidays but messages will be answered as soon as possible.

It is possible to join a class part way through a course or term so please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.

We look forward to hearing from you!

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 (puddle ducks seemed quite pricy). 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. We've tried a few venues having catch up lessons elsewhere and the facilities do vary a little, they're mostly school pools so often cold changing rooms but that is the only negative I can think of. Lots of fun great environment to teach your children to swim." Gary
