It doesn’t matter if you’ve never tried swimming with your baby before, or whether you’re confident in the pool, we’re sure you will love our gentle, fun and nurturing classes that are designed to maximise your bonding experience and introduce water safety skills from an early age. 

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.

Find out more about our Baby & Pre-School classes.

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.

Find out more about our Swim Academy.


We would love to talk to you in more detail about the sessions we offer so please feel free to get in touch. Our friendly team is available Monday to Friday 9:30am to 3:00pm so just give us a call if you need any help.

We all think we have the best job in the world and we hope that your experiences with Puddle Ducks Lancashire reflect that.

We look forward to welcoming you into the Puddle Ducks family very soon!

What Our Customers Think

Jessica Bentley

I've just started my second term with my daughter Eloise who is 27 months and she has come on so quickly, to the point where she spends all lesson asking to swim underwater! I just wanted to share something that happened on our recent holiday. Eloise was walking beside a swimming pool, got distracted and fell in! She didn't panic, kicked to the surface, turned and grabbed the wall. I was so proud of her putting all her Puddle Ducks' lessons in to practice. Puddle Ducks is brilliant fun and we look forward to our lesson every week, but more than that, it is teaching Eloise such brilliant skills around the water. We have our lessons with Rowan and I couldn't be more chuffed that Eloise put in to practice what we learn every week. We'll done Rowan! Xx
