Emma says “my personal uptake on swimming obviously ranks of very high importance, as it’s my job which I absolutely love, but also a massive part of my life. Joining a club as well as swimming competitively is an essential part of their success. My children absolutely love it. They look forward to going swimming each time, their social circle of friends has grown and is in addition to their friends to school, it has built confidence, character, motivation and self-esteem as well as increases their levels of fitness and health. My children wouldn’t be as confident and have the ability and technique they do if it wasn’t for the start they gained from attending Puddle Ducks Lessons. Swimming is a very important part of our family life, I love watching the children I teach knowing that with the right skills they can be safe in the water and could go on to swim competitively.”
