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

As the temperature is 31 degrees, some children may be happier wearing a thermal suit. We keep a small stock of spares for you to borrow for your first lesson (Floaties and Splashers only), and we also sell a good range on the Puddle Ducks shop. If you have any questions about this please contact us at the office.

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.

Closest play-park: Victoria Park is situated nearby.

Closest café: The school is very close to Commercial Road, and the various cafes and shops nearby
