We asked our wonderful customers if they felt their teacher went out of their way to make their lessons extra special, if they supported them through a tough time in the water, and the anwser was YES!
Thank you so much to everyone who nominated their teacher, we received a record number of emails and every single one made us so proud!
Our judge Mums Of Wandsworth said-
It was a VERY difficult decision and there were some really lovely nominations but we had to pick a winner so we chose this one.
It sounds like this teacher is an excellent all rounder, helping children who are scared to become excited, helping parents by being reassuring and also bringing fun and variety to the class to make sure everyone is enjoying it fully.
Congratulations Leonie! Thank you so much to Hannah and Alexa, saying your Puddle Ducks class is the highlight of your week fills us with delight! This nomination is now entered into the national competition at Duck HQ.
The second nomination for Leonie from Yvonne and Sonny, Sonny has made such amazing progress in the pool, it's great to see!
Thank you to Vicky and Ziva for nominating Andy. It's wonderful to hear Ziva has gained so much confidence, and has a great connection with her teacher.
Thank you to Freddie's mummy Nicki for this lovely nomination for Leanne. It's great to have such good feedback from a longstanding customer. This is a great example of how Leanne (and all our teachers) adapt activities to suit the individual child, so they can learn at their own unique pace.
Another lovely nomination for Leanne, thank you to Camilla, Thomas and William! Children often start off nervous in the water, or go through a nervous stage, we're here to support you every step of the way.
Water safety is the #1 reason parents believe baby swimming lessons are so important, so it's wonderful to receive this nomination for Andy. Thank you Victoria, Lochlan and Aidan for the wonderful feedback.
