Essential information:

  • Please ensure that you take your nappy home with you
  • If your child is over 8 years they must change in their own gender changing room
  • No food is permitted on the poolside or in the changing rooms, please save your child’s snack until after you have left the pool

Changing rooms: There are large changing areas for both male and female carers with lockers available to store your belongings.

Helping you to make your special time last even longer…that’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference

We like to make life fun and easy for our Puddle Ducks customers so here are some local places we think you and your children may like. You could even meet up before or after the class with your Puddle Ducks classmates.
