Swimming has always been a big part of my life, having been a competitive swimmer myself as a child, and working as a lifeguard when I was a teenager. After working for many years as an accountant, owning a Puddle Ducks franchise was the perfect career change for me, and I am so proud to be able to bring these amazing classes to the North East! – Carolyn Sharpe

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 the Puddle Ducks family very soon!

What Our Customers Think

"I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for the welcome you have given to Dillon and Daisy. After over a year swimming with another swim school, Dillon's class was cancelled and we had to move to another class which both Dillon and i never quite took to. Dillon started to lose both interest and confidence in the water but we were unable to change classes. I then received a letter from yourselves after giving birth to Daisy in November. My husband contacted you and we were very happy with the quick and friendly response. We came along and Dillon absolutely loved the lesson so we have now joined the kickers classes with him and Daisy, at 12 weeks old, is enjoying the Floaties class." (Debbie – mum to Dillon age 2 and Daisy aged 4 months)
