My first insight to baby swimming classes was when I took my then 4-month old son to his weekly classes. It was the highlight of our week and a lovely bonding time as well as teaching him a life skill.
Having previously been a Legal Advisor, I decided to change careers and do something I really care about. I've been teaching swimming to all ages from babies to pensioners since 2012 and I love it.
I joined Puddle Ducks in 2013 and after witnessing the classes I quickly became a customer. The classes are fun and energetic whilst teaching life preservation skills and my kids love it. I was especially impressed with the focus on teaching the children as individuals as well as within the group and giving each child the appropriate progression.
It's such a rewarding job whether it's watching a baby enjoying the freedom water provides before they can even crawl or seeing the pride of a pre-schooler achieve their 5m badge.
I look forward to teaching you and your little one in a class soon.
