    Hello I'm Melissa, I started swimming at Puddle Ducks when my little one was 4 months old. I joined a Monday night Floaties class at High Tunstall and fell in love with the class straight away. Swimming with Alex was always something I wanted to do. As he got older and started a Splashers class, the end of my maternity leave was looming over me, I knew going back to my old job wasn’t the most ideal situation for me. Then I saw an advert on the Tees Valley Puddle Ducks page for an admin role and knew I had to apply. I was very fortunate that Alison saw potential in me and after some persuading I eventually accepted a teaching role. 

    I started teaching Swim Academy in the Autumn of 2016 and went straight off to train for Baby and Pre School at the beginning of 2017. I have never looked back and have loved every second of teaching. I also still swim with Alex but he’s now a Little Dipper and it’s our favourite hobby. 

    I teach Baby and Pre School on a Tuesday at Rose Cottage.

    Wednesday & Sunday

    Hi I’m Kimberley, I currently poolside and teach Swim Academy. I have two girls aged 6 and 9 which is how I came to work at Puddle Ducks.
    My journey started as a customer in January 2016 when I bought my girls, then a Little Dipper and to one of the franchise's first Beginners Swim Academy class .
    I finally became a poolside in July 2016 and spent a year in this role before deciding to become a Swim Academy teacher completing my training in August 2017.

    I poolside and teach Swim Academy at Rose Cottage on a Wednesday and Sunday while Melissa teaches Baby and Pre School and Swim Academy.

  • Tia



    Hi I’m Tia, I have been a Puddle Ducks teacher since September 2017 after I seen the job advertised on Facebook. I have 2 boys aged 3 and 6 and I moved to the North East from Jersey when my youngest was born.

    I absolutely love my job and love seeing all the children progress.

    My favourite animal is an elephant and my favourite colour is pink

    I teach Swim Academy at Rose Cottage on a Thursday.
