We absolutely love the Teacher of the Term competition because it means we get to hear all the praise you are giving to our wonderful teachers
We had the lovely Kate (on the right) from Hello Mums as our judge for the Teacher of the Term competition this summer.
Kate had the lovely job of reading all of the nominations and picking a winner. As Kate is also a customer, all names were removed so the winner was also a surprise to her.
Pete is our winner this term and he is absolutely thrilled!
Kate from Hello Mums chose the nomination for Pete from mummy Robin because, 'It shows continuity for Puddle Ducks in terms of providing the same teacher on the lessons. The parent's recommendation also shows that the children are enjoying the journey with Puddle Ducks and not only do they enjoy it, but it also teaches them the right skills.'
'Pete has been a fab teacher for both my daughter and son - building their confidence and also ensuring they absolutely love their Puddle Ducks lessons. Thank you!' - Robin, Willow and Sebastian's mummy.
Well Done Pete!
We had some wonderful nominations for Marian and we couldn't agree with them more!
'Marian is thoughtful and always has a smile on her face.' - Samantha, Alexander's mummy
'Marian is devoted with the children and works hard with them so they can learn to swim' - Raghib, Aaliyan's mummy
'Marian is a lovely person, an understanding and knowledgeable teacher. I am more than happy to nominate her.' - Adina, David's mummy
'Marian has been very supportive and a great swimming teacher for my son Arthur. He has become a very confident little swimmer with her guidance' - Nadia, Arthur's mummy
We absolutely love this nomination for Andy!
'Andy's class is the one John is always most excited about. He engages so well with each child and parent and creates an atmosphere which is light-hearted, fun and educational. John's confidence and respect for the water has grown significantly since starting Andy's classes a few months ago and it's the only class that John (2 years) actually focuses on and listens. Thank you for being our favourite teacher Andy!' - Alley, John's mummy
Well done Leanne!
We smiled from ear to ear reading your nominations!
'Leanne is consistently great. We knew her from a poolside assistant and she is always loving and caring towards my son. His face lights up when she's there.' - Emma, Owen's Mummy
'Leanne was made for this! She is such a calming and loving presence. She really makes both baby and parent feel safe and comfortable and have fun.' - Catherine, Amy's Mummy
Our Poolside Assistants also deserve huge praise for all of their hardwork!
When Rachel saw our Teacher of the Term competition she asked us if we have a similar award for Poolside Assistants?
We just had to share this feedback for the lovely Julie! :-)
'Julie is great - she's so very helpful and supportive and is just generally such a lovely person that it would be nice to recognise this.' - Rachel, Alexa's Mummy
