    What our teachers think

    "Becoming a Puddle Ducks teacher wasn’t easy, there is a lotof training, hours of study, both in the pool and at home, but that made me even more determined as it demonstrated how committed, professional and thorough Puddle Ducks are. I truly feel we are experts in our field and I’m proud to say to people what I do."

  • What our teachers love

    What our teachers love

    I absolutely love watching the children bound through the door, excited for their swimming lessons and it is wonderful seeing them become more and more independent in their swimming. I can never hide my smile when they run through the door and say, ‘Hello Sinead’ 😊!  One of the many perks of being a Swim Academy teacher!
