Puddle Ducks Baby & Pre-school

Our Baby and Pre-school programme is a wonderful bonding experience. Progressive lesson plans instil a water confidence and a love of swimming whilst our nurturing teachers tailor activities to your child's abilities and needs.

Taught in lovely spacious pools with a maximum of ten children, our classes incorporate rhyme, music and movement based on extensive child development research. Our lessons are so well received that the children we teach can often swim over 10 metres before they start school.

Puddle Ducks Swim Academy

We also run classes for older children in our Swim Academy classes, so we will be with you throughout your whole journey from baby to independent swimmer.

Whether your child is coming from a pre-school class, or has never been in the water before, you can be sure that they will get the attention they need as our activities are individually tailored to suit each child.

Who are we?

We are Suzanne and Gary and we’re very proud to be delivering Puddle Ducks to Worcestershire, Herefordshire and surrounding areas.  Suzanne was a competitive swimmer and as a family with two young children we are all keen watersports enthusiasts – our children have grown up knowing the importance of learning to swim and being water safety aware.  We think it’s fantastic that water safety and personal survival skills are a central part of the Puddle Ducks programme – right from birth.

We are excited to welcome you to our Puddle Ducks classes!

What Our Customers Think

Max loves swimming with Puddle Ducks. It’s the right combination of fun and interesting activities underpinned with a constant theme of gaining confidence in and around the water. Puddle Ducks help to make important life-saving skills - like turning face up, kicking, paddling, and jumping safely from the water’s edge - into fun engaging games for the little ones. We have been coming to lessons since before Max was one year old. We had started with another swimming organisation, but on the recommendation of a friend we tried Puddle Ducks and found it to be definitely the best! Max is a character and we have had our ups and downs, some lessons have been difficult and Nicki our Puddle Ducks teacher has been great throughout all. She is good at encouraging and supporting both Max and I when the lessons are harder work - either because Max is having an off day, or because he is trying to master a new skill. It’s great to find the understanding of a "one size does not fit all" in kids classes, each Puddle Duck is an individual swimmer with their own strengths and troubles and things that make them tick. Having lessons on a Saturday meant we could continue after my maternity leave finished - which wasn’t possible with most other swim providers.” Hannah
