Puddle Ducks Swimming | Bath

Groups & Classes

Puddle Ducks teach children, from birth to 10 years, to swim independently, beautifully and confidently, and to love and respect the water. Classes are packed full of fun - watch as your little one develops into a confident swimmer without even realising they are learning to swim! We teach life-saving skills, so that should your child ever need them, they have a bank of invaluable skills that could save their life. We recognise that every child is different; our expert teachers individually tailor activities to suit your child’s ability and confidence levels. We often see children achieving their 10m award before they start school. 

Each class lasts half an hour and we have pools dotted across the region - discover your local pool below!

 Baby & Preschool Lessons | For ages 0-4 years

Our Baby & Preschool lessons provide a wonderful bonding opportunity for grown ups and their little ones. Babies can join our fantastic classes as soon as parents are ready to get in the water after giving birth. Lessons are taught in specially selected pools and have excellent teacher-baby ratios which means we can offer truly individually-tailored swimming lessons, letting children learn with others of the same age, all at their own pace. 

 Swim Academy | For ages 4+ years

Swimming is a journey, not a destination and here at Swim Academy, we learn and have fun all the way! Our 'beginners' level, Level 1 is often the first time that children enter the pool without their parent and our whole focus is on water confidence, basic water safety and the foundation skills for independent swimming. Teachers remain and teach from in the water throughout Level 1 and Level 2 and the teacher-child ratio is 4:1.

Why choose Puddle Ducks?

Quality of teaching has been our top priority for 20+ years, and we’re constantly evolving our teaching programme and methods to make sure your children receive the very best swimming lessons out there. All of our classes combine a carefully balanced set of activities including group and individual work, swimming, floating (without armbands!), songs and games. We’re big on fun, and our baby & preschool classes incorporate rhyme, music and movement based on extensive child development research.
