Puddle Ducks Baby & Pre-school
Our Baby & 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 pools with a maximum of eight 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 and who knows, maybe a future Olympic champion.
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 that they need as our activities are individually tailored to suit each child.

This is where Puddle Ducks started back in 2002 and we are very proud to be the flagship franchise, where new teachers are trained and new ideas are tested.
We all think we have the best job in the world! We hope that your experiences with Puddle Ducks Mid Cheshire are wonderful and that you enjoy every minute of lessons.
We look forward to welcoming you into the Puddle Ducks family very soon!
The charity event is run each year, and our children raise money for a local cause by learning water safety and survival skills, dressed in their favourite pyjamas.
Our swimmers have raised a whopping £5,000 for local causes over the last 5 years. This year, we raised £1489.44 for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and Nell’s Garden of Memories during the charity swimming event.
Mid Cheshire was the first Puddle Ducks franchise
15 years ago our founders Jo and Tracy met at antenatal classes and quickly struck up a friendship, spotting a gap in the market for high quality swimming lessons. After much planning, research and training, Puddle Ducks was launched in Mid Cheshire.
Puddle Ducks Charity Pyjama Week is coming very soon (16th - 22nd October) - and we're collecting sponsorship!
We're collecting sponsorship for two charities, very close to our hearts this Charity PJ Week.
“The BEST music class in town!” - stimulating multi-sensory baby classes from birth - exciting toddler classes - educational pre-school classes

Gulliver’s World in Warrington is the perfect theme park for children. A family-run park, specially designed for families with children aged between 2 and 13 years of age. Their age-appropriate rides and attractions undoubtedly make Gulliver’s one of the best days out for toddlers and older children in the North West. Older kids will love the excitement of their dodgems, log flumes and tree-tops swings; while the younger ones can play around in the Clown School!
Stockley Farm Park specialises in 'hands-on' experiences for all the family, ranging from bottle feeding the baby goats and lambs to grooming the ponies, going on wildlife safaris and cuddling the rabbits and guinea pigs in Pets' Corner. As they are an organic working farm, farming both dairy cattle and arable crops, visitors also have the opportunity to discover where their food comes from, through experiences such as milking parlour demonstrations and planting activities.
Whatever the weather, you will always find lots to do – their indoor play barn and outdoor adventure playground provide lots of fun and space for the younger members of the family to let off steam.
The NCT offer information and support in pregnancy, birth and early parenthood. They often run Nearly New Sales, with some great bargains on offer and we enjoy attending many of their events across Cheshire.
