Choose Swim – Swimming Lessons, DCLT
Here at Choose Swim, we have designed our swimming journey with Swim England’s support to ensure that whatever your child’s starting point is they will grow in confidence and skill in and around water.
We provide lessons for babies and toddlers aged between 0-5 years old – these fun lessons introduce them to water, build confidence and provide a great foundation for a lifetime of swimming. Our Primary age lessons take your child through seven stages of fun and exciting lessons, developing all of the skills needed for children to be competent, confident and safe in the water.

Puddle Ducks Doncaster – A perfect IntroDUCKtion to Swimming
“I’d highly recommend Puddle Ducks, it brought both my children on and now my 7 year old is under pro coaching for swim teams and my 5 year old does perfect front crawl, all thanks to the great start they had as babies and toddlers with Puddle Ducks” EW Doncaster Mumbler Chat Group Sept 2019
“We’ve been to Puddle Ducks since 3 months old (my LO is almost 2!) And we love it.” RDC Doncaster Mumbler Chat Group Sept 2019
If you are considering going swimming with your baby, we offer a child-led approach – Our Baby & Pre-school programme is a wonderful bonding experience. Progressive lesson plans instil a water confidence and a love of swimming whilst our nurturing teachers tailor activities to your child’s abilities and needs. Our Floaties class, suitable from birth to 6 months is the perfect introDUCKtion to swimming and leads in to our Splashers class (6-15 months), where happy splashy babies really start to explore their independence in the water. From 15-30 months our Kickers do lots of kicking, splashing, reaching and turning, before moving on to Little Dippers (30 months to 4 years). Although our lessons are full of fun, laughter, songs and games, your child will be picking up personal survival skills along the way. In teaching these skills to your children from as young an age as possible, they become second nature.
Babies can be taken swimming from birth and do not need to have completed their injections. Very young babies enjoy the freedom, massage and gentle exercise that the water offers. An STA World Partner, Puddle Ducks is recognised as a shining example of teaching standards by the world’s largest independent swimming teaching and lifesaving organisation.

Here in Doncaster you can take advantage of the award winning baby/toddler and pre-school lessons provided by Water Babies. Teaching babies here for over 11 years in various different locations across the town and wider county.
We’ll teach you to teach your baby to swim. From lesson one, we’ll get your little one used to the sensation of the water, developing their natuaral instincts and transforming these into core aquatic skills. By the end of our programme, your little one will be swimming freely using different strokes and be able to keep themselves safe in and around the water. We use carefully considered swim positions and activities to help your baby gain their confidence in the water from the get-go.
We work closely with Swim England, the national governing body for swimming and we’ve woven their learn to swim framework through our programme. So you’ll be simply amazed at the progress they’ve made.
