Puddle was very honoured to be invited to Prestbury CE Primary School, to deliver Water Safety Talks to their Nursery and Reception classes, as part of their 'Water Week'.
Water Safety is something we are hugely passionate about at Puddle Ducks. All of our classes have a water safety element to them every week. We also run regular Pyjama Weeks, giving all our swimmers a regular session where the babies/children are exposed to what it might feel like to be in the water with their clothes on. We do not positively encourage our swimmers to jump into the water whenever they can fully clothed – quite the opposite – but we can provide them with the opportunity to see how it would feel to be in the water, following an accidental submersion/fall into water, showing them that they can still swim, practice turning etc.
The boys and girls at Prestbury were absolutely brilliant at spotting the dangers and thoroughly engaged throughout, and of course they loved Puddle the Duck!
