Information for families in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

Puddle Ducks

Puddle Ducks classes teach babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers how to swim, be safe and have fun in the water. Children can join at any time from birth to 4 years. Held in warm water pools with a maximum of 9 people. We help children become happy, water confident, independent swimmers. Classes build on children's natural affinity with water and as a result, children learn to swim independently at an early age without the use of armbands or buoyancy aids. Each 30 minute session is packed with fun - with songs, games and activities all exactly geared to the developmental stage of your child. Good choice of alternative venues across Dorset. Teachers are STA trained and DBS checked. Contact Jane for details of costs, additional venues and further information.
