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.

Find out more about our Baby & Pre-School classes.


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

"Jo has taught both of our girls to swim through Puddle Ducks. One started at 3 months and the other 6 weeks and it is one of the best decisions we ever made. I myself am not very confident in the water and did not want the girls to follow in my footsteps. We love our weekly lessons and that is mainly due to Jo being such a great teacher. She is calm, friendly, patient, happy and the girls love swimming because of her. She always offers alternative exercises if the girls do not want to join in and makes me feel at ease if one gets distressed for any reason. Thank you Jo for helping us to have such happy and confident little girls in the water. You are a star in our eyes" Anna
