Baby & Pre-School Classes (from birth to 4 years)

Puddle DucksSwimming is one of the most AMAZING experiences you can share with your baby! Babies have a real affinity with water, having spent nine months in the womb – they can be taken swimming from birth and don’t need to have completed their injections (Puddle Ducks follow NHS guidelines). From a young age babies love the freedom, massage and gentle exercise that the water offers. The benefits to both parents and babies of swimming together are immense:

– There’s plenty of eye contact and skin to skin to encourage bonding with baby

– It helps you and your baby feel relaxed and confident in the water

– It is socially stimulating and fun activity for both of you

– For parents who can’t swim, it can build your confidence in the water too

– Babies and toddlers will learn the importance of water safety from a young age, instilling a respect for water that will last a lifetime

– Children taught by Puddle Ducks can often swim 10m before they start school!
