Puddle Ducks is excited to announce its reopening at Millwood Primary School, welcoming back children from birth to 10 years for swimming lessons. This well-regarded program teaches over 19,000 babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, and primary school children across the UK every week, focusing on independent, beautiful, and confident swimming, as well as a love and respect for water.
The classes at Puddle Ducks are not only educational but also packed with fun, enabling children to develop into confident swimmers. Recognizing the uniqueness of each child, the expert teachers at Puddle Ducks tailor activities to suit individual ability and confidence levels. It’s impressive to see children often achieve their 10m swimming award before they even start school.
A cornerstone of Puddle Ducks’ classes is teaching water safety from a young age. Babies as young as six months begin learning water safety and personal survival skills, and school-aged children are taught life-saving skills. A highlight of their term is the pyjama parties, which are not only fun but also a practical application of these vital skills.
The teachers at Puddle Ducks are highly qualified, passionate, professional, nurturing, and, importantly, make the classes enjoyable. Their innovative program, which has been developed over 15 years, includes bespoke songs and rhymes and is continually evolving to provide the best swimming education possible.
Jo Gribben, who established Puddle Ducks Lancashire in 2010 and has since expanded to 15 pools across Lancashire and some parts of Greater Manchester, expressed her delight at returning to Millwood Primary School. She commented, “We are delighted to be able to use the pool at Millwood Primary School again. It’s a lovely clean venue, with plenty of parking spaces, ample changing rooms, and the children particularly enjoy the toasty warm water.”
With its reopening at Millwood Primary School, Puddle Ducks is set to continue its tradition of providing exceptional swimming education in a fun and safe environment, helping children develop vital skills and a lifelong love for swimming.
