    "Pete has an outstanding approach with all the kids, they clearly enjoy their lessons. We can see the progress throughout the lessons. My husband and I are both secondary school teachers, and are really happy with his teaching techniques and consistency. We love that he has his lesson plan on the side. We also love that he sticks to the rules and cares about health and safety."

  • Andy


    Baby and pre-school classes-

    "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 that 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 yrs) actually focuses on and listens. Thanks for being our favourite teacher Andy!"

    Alley, John's Mummy

    "Sinead is great. I continued with Alana's classes because Sinead makes them fun and not once has Alana ever felt or looked uncomfortable during the classes and she puts us at ease especially when babies go under water."

    "Maggie has been a wonderful teacher for my daughter Freya over the last few months. Maggie has great energy, is really good company and has a real knack of bringing out the best in Freya - whether that's as part of a class full of other children or on the rare occasions when it's just been Freya in the pool.  She has an encyclopaedic knowledge of difference swimming exercises and builds great rapport with all the children in the pool so far as I can see. Overall I think that she does a great job."

    "Our son was terrified of water. He is gaining confidence and this is due to in very large part to the excellent teacher. Highly Recommended – the difference to our son is amazing."

  • Katie


    Baby and pre-school classes- 

    Saturday & Sunday Riversdale Primary School

    Saturday & Sunday Aspire Centre

    "Katie is not just a Star Teacher but a Super Star Teacher!  Under her expert guidance Finn has moved from Kickers, through Little Dippers into Dippers in no time at all, as Katie has challenged and stretched him to achieve all manner of jumping and underwater turning and swimming.  And he's still not yet 3!  His Puddle Ducks session is quite literally his favourite half hour of the week and Katie is a significant reason why that is the case!"

    "My boy is super confident in the water, we've been going since 5 months old and he loves it! He squeals and splashes away and we look forward to attending every weekend. The teachers are dynamic, encouraging and create a fantastic, fun atmosphere. Can't recommend it enough."

  • Monique


    Swim Academy classes-

    Sunday Aspire Centre

    "When my son started Swim Academy, he could swim but wouldn't put his face in the water or jump in. His confidence soared, he achieved his 10m award and mastered many swimming techniques! I would highly recommend these classes to any parents wanting their child to learn in a fun but structured environment which engages children from the second they get in the water until the second they get out!"

    Louise Buck, Drew's Mummy

  • Natasha


    Swim Academy classes-

    Monday & Thursday Heston Hyde Hotel

    Wednesday Whiteley Village

    "My son who didn't even like water on his face is now swimming under water! This is all because if the amazing coaching team. They are patient, kind and make sure the child doesn't fear the water but enjoys the experience. In just 8 lessons my son has progressed to Level 2 where he swims without floatation aids. This would have never happened if the team at Puddle Ducks had not been training him. I can't recommend them enough. As a parent who cannot swim, to see your son swim so confidently is a treat to see."

    "Brilliant! Small classes, and always a teacher in the pool. My son was very nervous and refused to get in the water for the first few weeks, but they continued to encourage him to move forward in small steps and this week he managed to swim a width with his head under water. And the best part is that he actually enjoys the lessons."
