Learning to swim is an essential life skill; potentially life-saving, great fun and a wonderful way to keep fit but it is so much more than that too! Learning to swim can translate into life skills that carry you and your child far beyond the swimming pool and help enhance all areas of your lives. Here are just some of the wonderful benefits you can reap by heading down to the pool and learning to swim with Puddle Ducks Doncaster.
Skills for Life
Making swimming independently and water safety as natural as breathing
The swimming and life-saving skills your little one is taught on our programme will stay with them… for life!
Skills for Life means just that at Puddle Ducks, every child is taught to swim using tailored activities that are unique to them, and their levels of ability and confidence, within our structured framework – we keep it fun and we know that it works!
The children in our swimming classes learn how to swim without realising it, so that swimming and water safety become as natural as breathing, and it develops into a skill set that never leaves them.
The little ones we teach can often swim over 10m before starting school, and then go on to learn style, stamina and more formal lifesaving skills in our Swim Academy
Making excercise fun and learning through active play
Puddle Ducks helps parents and youngsters live a healthy life from as early as possible, by showing them how much fun it is to keep active, both within and outside of our classes.
We never preach, just naturally encourage a healthy lifestyle through regular, fun exercise and active play. All of our classes – from Aquanatal all the way through Baby and Pre-school and Swim Academy – are wonderful ways to keep fit.
The skills and activities taught in class can be taken away and enjoyed in other pools, on holidays and with friends and other members of the family, for life.
Developing valuable social skills; children and prents making friends for life
Puddle Ducks has a fantastic social element that our customers just love. The little ones in our swimming classes adore playing together – both in and outside of lessons – and parents often become friends for life, too.
Puddle Ducks has an important social side to its classes. We teach children of the same age, rather than of the same ability, so that little ones are learning at their own pace among their peers. This helps them develop a valuable set of social skills that will stay with them as they grow.
The changing rooms can also be quite a sociable environment for parents, too, with many becoming firm friends for life and meeting up during the week even when it’s not a ‘Puddle Ducks day.’
Helping to create memories, from bath time to holidays and more
Puddle Ducks touches our customers’ family life beyond the swimming pool, whether that’s by singing our songs at bath time or playing with the Puddle Ducks puppet!
Bath time can become a real treat as your child’s water confidence grows, and they evolve from a child who screams when having their hair washed to one who squeals with delight and blows bubbles in the tub!
Even holidays are made more enjoyable, bringing happy memories of playing in our swimming pools together, and giving little ones the chance to show off their new skills to other family members.
