"At Puddle Ducks we want every child to love swimming, respect the water and swim beautifully.  That's why our standards are the highest and our approach is unique.  We understand that every baby, child, parent and carer is an individual, with different levels of water confidence and ability, so it's impossible to have a 'one size fits all' approach.  It's our job to give our swimmers half an hour each week where they can forget the outside world, and focus on spending time together learning valuable life skills, bonding, meeting new friends and above all having fun!

Our experienced, enthusiastic and friendly teachers are here to support you through every step of your Puddle Ducks journey.  Whether you and your child are super confident in the water or have never dipped a toe before, everyone is welcome at Puddle Ducks, and we can't wait to see you in the pool soon!"  Helen Hicks


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, our classes incorporate rhyme, music and movement based on extensive child development research.  Lessons are paid for in blocks of 10 weeks at a price of £150, and you can join our classes at any time, no need to wait for a start of term!

What Our Customers Think

"I would really like to nominate Helen (for Teacher of the Term) who does our Floaties class in Novotel on Mondays, she has made me feel very at ease and my little girl has grown in confidence in the water immeasurably. Her flexible approach to rearranging classes has meant so much. She is ace." El (mum to Nesta)
