Swimming has always been a big part of family life for me, as a competitor in my younger days and now as a mum of two competitive swimmers. I still burst with pride at my own youngsters achievements and I know that early water confidence and instilling a love of water from a very young age has played a crucial part in their success today. I was thrilled to launch Puddle Ducks in the Lincolnshire area in 2010, and have enjoyed every moment of bringing our fabulous programmes to babies and children across the county since then - Nicola Wilson
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 Aquanatal
Our Aquanatal programme is fantastic for mummies-to-be, offering the perfect combination of gentle exercise, muscle strengthening and relaxation.
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.
We look forward to welcoming you into our Puddle Ducks family very soon!
