Baby & Pre-school

Baby & Pre-school

Swimming with your baby is one of the most wonderful experiences you can share together. It offers your little one a unique sensory experience and helps them develop confidence in water that will last them a lifetime.

During our Baby & Pre-school programme, you will have time to really focus on your baby or young child one-to-one. It’s a great way to bond with and an enjoyable way for you both to relax together.

Progressive Lessons
We have spent many years developing progressive lesson plans that help develop children into swimmers from an early age. Our approach to swimming ensures that your child’s needs are expertly fulfilled and will nurture their confidence in the water.

During Puddle Duck’s Baby & Pre-school programmes, our teachers adapt the activities to suit each child's individual needs. Taught in lovely warm pools with a maximum of ten children, our classes incorporate rhyme, music and movement based on extensive child development research. We’ve even had professional musicians help to write our unique class songs.

Water Safety
Our classes offer children the chance to learn the importance of water safety, including personal survival. These are invaluable skills to develop at such a young age, and will instil a confidence and respect for the water that will last a lifetime.

Our lessons are so well received that the children we teach can often swim over 10 metres before they start school. That’s the Puddle Ducks difference!

Our Baby & Pre-school programme is offered through six levels:

What Our Customers Think

Puddle Ducks has been an amazing experience for our family...

"I could go on forever, but to sum it up - I think Puddle Ducks is great as its a programme that teaches life saving water skills, and creates a great baseline for future strong swimmers. I love the way they do this by engaging kids and parents in exciting activities with the right balance of challenge and familiarity to progress skills and confidence, while all the time remembering to have fun for everyone!" Hannah, mum to Max, aged 3
