Swimming Taught By Experts – The Puddle Ducks Difference!
Puddle Ducks teaches children, from birth to 10 years, to swim independently, beautifully and confidently, and to love and respect the water.
Classes are packed full of fun – watch as your little one develops into a confident swimmer without even realising they are learning to swim! We recognise that every child is different; our expert teachers individually tailor activities to suit your child’s ability and confidence levels. We often see children achieving their 10m award before they start school.
Teaching water safety from a young age is also core to our classes. Babies as young as six months start to learn water safety and personal survival skills, and our school-aged children also learn life-saving skills. Every term we hold pyjama parties – not only to put these skills into practice, but also to have lots of fun!
Our highly qualified teachers are passionate, professional, nurturing, fun and loved by our swimmers. Our innovative programme, incorporating bespoke songs and rhymes, is consistent with research development in infant physiology and infant psychology and with technical advances in swimming. Our baby and pre-school programme leads to beautiful surface swims, progressing to child-led rolling to breathe and then into beautiful stroke development in our Swim Academy programme; a true child-led swimming progression with amazing results.
We work closely with Birthlight and the STA on the best and safest way to submerge children so that they feel empowered and never forced. The answer is simple; the child decides. Submersions are encouraged at every opportunity but are no longer an official activity within our lesson plans.
Covid Update: Throughout the pandemic, our lessons have been adapted in line with the government and STA guidelines to ensure we can stay safe and Covid-19 secure. Our ethos remains the same: Our babies and children have always been at the centre of everything we do. All staff will wear the appropriate PPE according to government guidelines, we have extra cleaning measures in place and we will continue to support the rest of the country in the fight against the virus.
We are constantly developing, ensuring our lessons are safe for all involved and of the very highest standard, because our mission is simple: we want every child to love and respect the water and learn to swim beautifully.
