I became passionate about baby swimming after taking my eldest daughter, Isabella, to classes when she was 4 months old.  I have always been a keen swimmer & Isabella’s lessons quickly became the highlight of my week. She is still a keen swimmer & loves spending time at the pool. My youngest, Amelia, started swimming at 7 weeks old & is equally at ease in the water.

I enjoyed baby swimming classes so much that I decided not to go back to my original HR career & starting teaching baby, toddler & pre-school swimming lessons instead & I can honestly say that I have never looked back! - Beccy Stenson

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 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

She is always such good fun for the children

Sam is always such good fun for the children. She knows them as individuals and has a real ability to ensure they all learn at their own pace. My son has not always loved swimming but she's kept encouraging him and he has responded really well. We love our lessons with her.
