    I started Puddle Ducks swimming lessons with my little girl Grace when she was just 9 weeks old and it soon became our favourite outing of the week. Grace grew in confidence every week and the whole experience exceeded my expectations, owning a puddle ducks franchise was the perfect opportunity for me, and I am so proud to be able to offer these fantastic classes to West Berkshire, North Hampshire and East Surrey area!

    I have always loved swimming; my mum always says that I could swim before I could walk! I used to swim several times a week all the way through to the end of university where I studied a degree in Sport. I have always found being in the water very calming, swimming lanes helps me to focus and playing in the pool, on lakes, rivers or in the sea reminds me of the fun I had growing up, sailing, kayaking, swimming, pretending to be a mermaid, diving in or playing splashing games with my family. After university I buckled down with my serious office jobs but when my daughter was born I started to wonder if there was something that would allow me more time with her and add a little more fun in to my day.
    We started swimming with Puddle Ducks and one day I commented on how much fun it looked to be a teacher, the next thing I knew, I had booked my teacher training and I haven't looked back since.
    The classes with Puddle Ducks are so much fun, I love seeing all the little ones learn, and being able to witness their swimming journey is such a privilege. I also love helping pregnant mummies find a bit of time every week for themselves that allows them some gentle exercise in a safe environment as well as a bit of time to relax (it was my favourite time of the week when I was pregnant). I believe that learning to swim is a lifelong skill that is a lot of fun with Puddle Ducks and I hope to see you soon in one of our lovely pools :)
