My passion for teaching babies and children to swim began when my youngest daughter Gracie May and I started attending classes when she was just 11 weeks old. From day one it became the highlight of our week; a special bonding time that surprisingly I enjoyed as much as her! As a child I was initially not a strong swimmer and I had an alarming experience, nearly drowning having fallen into a pool well out of my depth. From that moment on I resolved to improve my own ability in the water and I never looked back; now I am lucky enough to be teaching other children to swim.

Every Puddle Ducks Baby & Preschool lesson has been carefully devised to fit your child’s developmental stage with lots of songs, games and activities geared toward getting your little one to swim independently, safely and happily, both above and under the water. Most of all, each class is a lot of fun! We recognise that every child is different and learns to swim at their own pace. We are the only swim school that delivers tailored activities in lessons designed to grow with each child…that’s the Puddle Ducks difference!

Our Puddle Ducks Aquanatal programme is also fantastic for mums-to-be, offering a lovely combination of safe, yet challenging exercise, muscle strengthening, relaxation and breathing. There are two elements to the lessons – exercises to ensure that you stay fit and healthy and relaxation time. You can be confident in the knowledge that our classes are taught by fully qualified Aquacise, Aquanatal and Ante-natal swimming teachers.

My wife Lindsay and I run the business with the help of our friendly and hardworking team and we aim to give you the best possible service both in the water and through our efficient administration; as well as our intensive Puddle Ducks training, our teachers are fully STA qualified and all our staff are DBS checked so that you know that you and your child are in the very safest hands.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out more about your local Aquanatal or Baby and Pre-school swimming classes. Our office is manned every day except Saturday – Holly, Lindsay, Louisa and Rachel are here to answer all your questions!

We look forward to welcoming you into our Puddle Ducks family very soon!
