    It took me a long time to become confident in the water. I was pushed into the water by a stranger as a child before I could swim and that was probably the reason why I started with a fear of the water.

    My parents encouraged my swimming lessons with the promise of a Five Star LP but even that wasn't enough encouragement!

    I eventually broke my fear at secondary school and with the help of my PE teacher I achieved my 25 metre award. I've been a confident, strong swimmer ever since.

    Having two children now, I have made it my mission to make the water environment as fun as possible. I didn't want my children to fear water - respect it, yes - but not fear it as I did. I also didn't want them missing out on water activities like I did growing up.

    I started working at Puddle Ducks as a Poolside Assistant in 2016 and was approached to take up teaching. After some consideration, I decided to go for it!

    My main driver was that I could help at least one nervous child to become confident in the water.

    I am now so excited to be part of the Puddle Ducks team and to help you on your journey of teaching your child to swim.

    I have always loved being in the water and living near the sea I truly believe that swimming is a vital life skill. As a child I swam for my school, after my dad had helped to build our school pool and spent most of my summer holidays windsurfing and kayaking.

    When I had children of my own I knew I wanted them to have swimming lessons. What I didn't know was how much I would enjoy being a part of them. It really is a wonderful experience for both parents and children alike. I knew then that this was what I wanted to do and I love being part of the Puddle Ducks family.

    I look forward to seeing you and your little ones in the water soon.

    My parents insisted that my sisters and I took swimming lessons from a very early age. Growing up I belonged to swimming clubs and always loved being in the water.  Every Sunday my parents would take us swimming and it is without a doubt one of my fondest memories. 

    When I had children of my own I knew the first thing I would ever do with them was take them swimming!  They have attended swimming lessons since they were babies and still do each week.  They are now five and eight and are like little fish in the water!  I am very fortunate that my mother-in-law has a swimming pool and throughout the summer that’s the only place my children want to be!  Watching them play in the water, having so much fun, knowing that they are safe is truly the best gift I could every give my children! 

    Joining the Puddleducks team is the best thing I have ever done!  The fact that I can do something that I believe in so much and have so much fun doing is fantastic!  I love the way the classes are set out.  We are teaching life preservation skills and it’s all through having fun!  I very much look forward to seeing you at a puddleducks class!  And please believe me,  it truly is the best thing you can do for your child!
