Keeping it in the family

The Smith family have been swimming with Puddle Ducks for 13 years

A family of four children from Hartford have all taken the plunge and learnt to swim with us at Puddle Ducks Mid Cheshire.

Parents, Sarah and Mike, have always understood the importance of learning to swim, so much so that since their eldest, Mary, was born in 2005 they have taken all four of their children to weekly swimming lessons to learn how to swim the Puddle Ducks way.

We provide innovative swimming classes for babies, toddlers and children ages 0 to 10 years old. Their teachers focus on creating a nurturing environment, which supports independent swimming for children of all abilities.

Sarah said: “I feel swimming is an important life skill that all children should have. I want to give my children the best chance should they fall into a body of water. Swimming is also an enjoyable leisure activity and great for fitness.

“The past 13 years as a customer of Puddle Ducks has been extremely enjoyable. I am so thankful to Puddle Ducks for teaching my children how to swim independently and so beautifully, in such a safe, but fun environment.”

Rachel Bateson, Franchise Manager of Puddle Ducks Mid Cheshire, commented: “Mary, Anna, Leah and Noah have been a big part of Puddle Ducks and we are so proud of them all. The whole team has loved watching their swimming journey, from our baby class, Floaties, to our final programme, Swim Academy.

“We are always proud to see our swimmers progress and move on once they reach 10 years old. It’s great to see the three eldest have carried on swimming after their time at Puddle Ducks, by joining the Northwich Centurions swimming club. It is so lovely to be part of the development of local children and to teach them such wonderful skills.”
