Puddle Ducks delivers nurturing, fun swimming classes to babies and children across the UK. Babiescan join our swimming classes from birth, developing into confident swimmers without even realising they’re learning to swim. By engaging each child’s abilities and natural affinity with water, Puddle Ducks offer simple steps to a lifetime love of swimming. Every child is different and we adapt each activity to suit each child, nurturing water confidence so that children become happy swimmers before they start school.
Puddle Ducks have been teaching children to swim for 12 years and have been franchising for seven years. Our network of territories stretch across mainland United Kingdom and there are a number of territories available for sale and also potential resale opportunities.
Puddle Ducks are proud winners of numerous awards in recent years based on anonymous feedback from franchisees.
