Save the date for our next Pyjama Week....
w/c 15th October 2018 will be our charity pyjama week for Autumn 2018
This is where we our children (and their parents in they're in baby and preschool) come along and swim in their pyjamas for a lesson on water safety and survival skills while having fun and raising money for charity.
This year we are raising money for 4Louis. A charity who supports families through miscarriages, stillbirth and child loss. Below you can find information on 4Louis and printable sponsor form as well as the link to our Just Giving Page.
Why is pyjama week important?
At Puddle Ducks, we love swimming and think that everyone, no matter what age should learn to swim and experience the enjoyment of being in the water!
There are so many benefits to swimming and as well as being a lot of fun, we take pride in teaching a valuable, life-saving skill. In order to ensure that our babies and children have an understanding of what it could feel like to be in the water whilst clothed - as they would be if they fell in to water accidentally - we hold our popular pyjama week each term.
Whilst all of our classes each week have a water safety element to them, our Pyjama week gives all of our swimmers a regular session in pyjamas which will help them realise that although they feel heavier, they can still kick to the surface, turn and reach for the side.
Here is what you need to know
- Your child (and yourself) will need to wear PJ's. Don't forget to wear your usual double swim nappies underneath if needed
- Bring a plastic carrier bag for wet pyjamas as they make bags and towels very wet!
- We will have a lot of fun, as well as learning some valuable life-saving skills.
