Puddle Ducks run swimming classes for babies and pre-schoolers at a range of venues across York, seven days a week. We want every child to love swimming, respect the water and swim beautifully. That’s why our standards are the highest and our approach is unique. At Puddle Ducks, our highly trained and qualified teachers are experts at identifying children’s levels of ability and adapting activities to the individual, nurturing confidence and encouraging natural ability.

We never stand still – our programmes and teacher training are continuously developed in the latest techniques, ensuring our teaching standards remain the highest.

We believe in giving your child choice – if your little one isn’t ready to do an activity, we listen to them and adapt what they are doing to something they are comfortable with. We want to build their confidence, not break it.

Flexibility – if you cannot attend a lesson, just let us know in your online account and we give you a voucher to book an alternative class. Vouchers are valid for 6 months giving you lots of flexibility.

We run classes 7 days a week across York

We also run Aquanatal classes, so you can start your journey with Puddle Ducks before your baby arrives!
