  • Pete


    Franchisee - Baby & Pre-school and Swim Academy Teacher Cover Teacher 

    Sunday Sellincourt Primary School

    "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."


  • Lourita


    Senior Teacher for both Baby & Pre-School & Swim Academy 

    Sunday Latchmere Leisure Centre

    "Lourita has got that something special that makes us love her lessons so much. Her kindness, friendly approach and sense of humour make every lesson very enjoyable and not scary at all. For a little duck like Monika, it is very important as sometimes she scared to try new things like dive for the ring or jump. Lourita’s fantastic and intuitive approach to children takes swimming sessions to different level. Truly Amazing Teacher."

  • Andy


    Baby & Pre-School Teacher

    Friday  The Mall School 

    Saturday & Sunday Strathmore @ Greycourt School 

    "Andy has been Ryan's swimming teacher since he was just 5 months old. His classes and teaching methods have given us, as first-time parents, and Ryan the confidence we need to feel comfortable in the water, whether it's during swimming lessons or bath time at home. Ryan's happiest moments are in the water, and thanks to Andy's instruction, he's developed strong water safety skills. Andy's impact on Ryan's love for water and his confidence in swimming is truly remarkable."

  • Sara

    "Sara has been teaching my boy for around 6 months now and she has been a fantastic teacher, helping him with new skills as he grows. He's always got a huge smile for her as she's warm, friendly and engaging. I'm always so impressed by how she remembers all the babies names. She goes above and beyond to make sure the babies have a fun and safe lesson"

  • Helen


    Baby & Pre - School Teacher 

    Sunday Whiteley Village

    "Helen is unfailingly enthusiastic, encouraging and positive. Our son adores his swimming lessons and has so much fun every week. Helen always knows just when a duck-based incentive might be needed and really takes the time to get to know each of the children. She is also really clear with the adults about why there's a focus on particular skills and how these contribute to swimming development. It's been an absolute joy to see our son's love of the water develop and to see how confident he feels in the water. We're so grateful to Helen for all she has taught us!"


  • Vajra

  • Danielle


    Swim Academy Teacher

    Saturday The Aspire Centre

    "Danielle is a fantastic Swim academy teacher. Zara has come on so much since the long covid break as she was nervous about being in the deep end alone and about swimming lengths, but we are so amazed by her increased strength and improved technique recently, massively helped by the warmth and encouragement of Danielle who always remembers to say a personal well done to Zara at the end of each class which is massively appreciated by her and by us as parents"

  • Zahra


    Swim Academy Teacher and Baby & Pre-school teacher 

    Monday & Saturday Heston Hyde Hotel (Swim Academy)

    Sunday Heston Hyde Hotel 

    "Kizzy absolutely LOVES her Swim Academy classes and although she is still a little nervous her teachers are really patient and encouraging and her confidence is improving all the time."


  • Natasha


    Swim Academy Teacher and Baby & Pre-school teacher 

    Friday The Mall School (Swim Academy)

    Saturday Heston Hyde Hotel 

    "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."
