We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at the New Beacon School – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!

Location: the New Beacon School

Parking: There is ample free parking in the onsite car park adjacent to the pool; there will be signs to direct you to the changing rooms and pool.

Essential Information:

  • We recommend that you bring a changing mat with you to the lessons so that you always have a dry place to change your baby.
  • You will be asked to shower before entering the pool.
  • A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly NappyWrap & Liners underneath if your child is in Floaties, Splashers or Kickers and in other programmes if they are not potty/toilet trained. Why not buy one of our great value starter packs which contain everything you need for your swim lesson.
