Puddle Ducks Doncaster – A perfect IntroDUCKtion to Swimming
***Re-open from 12th April 2021 ***
“Harry loved his first lesson in the floaties class yesterday! All very well planned out taking in to consideration current regulations! We can’t wait for next week” Facebook Review Sept 2020
“Puddle ducks are amazing my daughter aged 3 years was in tears at her lessons at the local swimming centre wanting to quit, I took a gamble with puddle ducks and I’m glad I did my little girl is smiling and laughing again in lessons she no longer refuses to get out of car or complains of stomach ache to get out of lessons she’s excited and eager to go. So huge thumbs up from me and my little girl to Puddle ducks we can’t wait to get back when lockdown restrictions ease, my little girl wants to wobble wobble like a jelly on a plate.” Review June 2020
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 natural 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 fun filled programme, you will be simply amazed at the progress they make.
We currently hold classes at Quest Park, Rossington Hall and Nuffield Health so pop along to our website to find your nearest one and to get in touch!
