About Puddle Ducks West Berkshire
The Puddle Ducks programme, which is a nationally recognised swimming programme, is constantly being updated, so that it is always fresh and exciting. The programme runs from 0-4 year olds and you can start at any time during the term. Although each age group from Floaties to Dippers follows a carefully planned lesson, we realise that your child is individual and all our activities are tailored to meet their needs.
Each lesson, which lasts 30 minutes, is a carefully balanced set of activities including group and individual work, swimming, submersion, floating, songs and games. If you’re looking for a fun way to spend quality time with your child while also learning some valuable water safety skills, then this is definitely for you.
Youngsters can join at any age from birth, at any point in the term. Classes are packed full of fun - watch as your youngster develops into a confident swimmer without even realising they are learning to swim! Puddle Ducks offer simple steps to a lifetime love of swimming. We recognise that every child is different: our fantastic teachers adapt each activity to suit each child, nurturing water confidence so that your child will become a happy little swimmer 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!
