Jacqueline wins Star Teacher for Spring Term 2020

Each term our customers share their feedback with us via Star Teacher nominations and we will be sharing some of the lovely things they’ve said this term across our social media platforms in the coming weeks. This term's winning nomination will now be sent on to our head office to be entered into the National Puddle Ducks Star teacher award - Good Luck Jacqueline!

Jacqueline set up Puddle Ducks West Berkshire in September 2013 after enjoying Puddle Ducks classes in Bristol with her own daughter as a baby. The bonding experience and opportunity to build confidence in the water together was such a special time and now, along with her expanding team of expert teachers she gets to share these amazing moments with other mums and dads as they embark on their first sessions in the water.

Choosing a winning nomination  

Nominations were judged by local baby, child and family brand marketing consultant, Katie Finch from 10 Point Marketing.

Katie comments: “Being asked to judge the Spring Term Star Teacher awards was a flattering but tough task as all the entries were so lovely! In the end I picked the winning nomination because I felt it really showed what a difference Puddle Ducks Teachers are making to the lives of little ones and their families. From their very first time in the pool together to becoming confident young swimmers years later as they progress through their Puddle Duck’s classes, it’s clear to see that as well as providing key swimming skills and lots of fun in the pool there is a genuine care for the well being of customers out of the water too.”  

Jacqueline Green, Owner of Puddle Ducks West Berkshire comments:

“I would like to say a big thank you to every parent who took the time to nominate their teachers for the award and to thank Katie for judging the award this term.  It really is heart-warming to read all of the fantastic comments our customers have to say about our amazing teachers and I am very happy to have been chosen for teacher of the term!  I’m incredibly proud of the work we do at Puddle Ducks and think our entire team is just brilliant at what they do. I can’t wait to see how our little Puddle Ducks keep progressing throughout the term.

The winning nomination

The winning nomination came from James' mum Megan, from our Yateley Pool. 

"Jackie has overseen James's swimming lessons for the last 3 years until a recent house move. She has been his swim teacher twice during this time and I appreciate the care and attention that she has given to James.

From a baby at 8 weeks, who cried throughout his first session to now a confident child who happily jumps in the water and loves nothing better than getting rid of his woggles and giving it a go. I can't thank Jackie and the Puddle Ducks team enough for making the sessions so fun and engaging.

Jackie has always been so accommodating over the last few years, as we've attended many different venues due to work changes over this time. I am very glad that we have been able to transfer to a Puddle Ducks local to our new house, so that we can continue on our swimming journey. Although James and I will miss Jackie!"
