Our tiny baby classes are aimed at 3 months – 9 months. These sessions give mums one-on-one time with their babies in a warm cosy environment with time to chat and share stories over a cup of tea/coffee afterwards.  We appreciate every little one is different so it doesn’t matter if they need changing, feeding or cuddling – everyone is made welcome.  We can also adapt our payment schedule to suit those looming return to work days so you can continue to enjoy the fun up until the very last minute.

9 months – 2 years is the age range we see our little ones develop from sitting to crawling to walking, babbling away in their own language.

 

In these sessions we aim to build the confidence of each individual, develop motor skills and coordination and hopefully build on their love of music and dancing – we use a variety of different resources, instruments and visual aids to keep their attention (and give the grown ups a bit of a work out too).

As our little ones approach the age of exploring pre-school or even full time school, we help encourage their independence in physical activities, concentration at story time and many basic music skills exploring tempo, dynamics, pitch etc.

 

We hope to help little ones find and develop a love of music, singing and enthusiasm to learn which can be taken on to the next stage of their lives.

Puddle Ducks … The Perfect IntroDUCKtion to Swimming

 

Puddle Ducks Wakefield runs classes in pools across Wakefield, Barnsley, Sheffield & South Leeds, and we have just celebrated our 10th year in business!

 

Our Baby & Pre-School programme (0-4 years) provides a wonderful bonding experience and our progressive lesson plans instil a water confidence and love of swimming. 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, all whilst having lots of fun.

 

Our Baby & Pre-school programme is offered through six levels:

Floaties (0-6 months),
Splashers (6-15 months),
Kickers (15 months to 2.5 years),
Little Dippers (2-5 years) and
Dippers and Dabblers (2-5 years ability related classes)

 

For older children, whether they have come from a pre-school class or never been in the water before, Swim Academy (4-10 years) will take your child from ‘getting their faces wet’ to being an independent swimmer and who knows, maybe a future Olympic champion.

 

Teaching independent swimming from birth. That’s the Puddle Ducks difference.

Classes run on every day of the week in 7 local pools
