Puddle Ducks’ effective baby and child swimming classes are all about fun, confidence, grace and safety in the water. Babies can join our fantastic classes as soon as mum is ready to get in the water after giving birth. We teach life-saving skills from as young as six months old, so that should your child ever need them, they have a bank of invaluable skills that could save their life.
Each class lasts half an hour and provides a wonderful bonding opportunity for parents and their little ones. We’ve deliberately limited our class sizes to nine. This gives excellent teacher-student ratios and means we can offer truly individually tailored swimming lessons for babies, toddlers and children that let them learn with other children of their age, all at their own pace. Quality of teaching has been our top priority for ten years, and we’re constantly evolving our teaching programme and methods to make sure your children receive the very best swimming lessons out there.
All of our classes take place in specially selected clean, warm pools and combine a carefully balanced set of activities including group and individual work, swimming, submersion, floating (without armbands!), songs and games. We’re big on fun, and our classes incorporate rhyme, music and movement based on extensive child development research. We’ve even had our unique class soundtracks written by professional musicians. Be warned, the songs are very addictive – you’ll soon be singing them in the bath and the car!
