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.
Puddle Ducks Aquanatal
Our Aquanatal programme is fantastic for mummies-to-be, offering the perfect combination of gentle exercise, muscle strengthening and relaxation.
Our purpose built Aqua Nurture pool is designed specifically for babies and toddlers. Our 8 x 6 metre hydro pool is kept at a cosy 33.5 degrees, with a lovely warm poolside air temperature – perfect for babies and young children but also for those with disabilities or reduced mobility.
Who are we?
We are Suzanne and Gary and we’re very proud to be delivering Puddle Ducks to Manchester, Oldham 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!
