Puddle Ducks

Puddle Ducks delivers nurturing, fun swimming classes to babies and children from 0 to 10 years across the UK. Babies can 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. Each activity is adapted to suit each child, nurturing confidence so that children become happy swimmers before they start school.

Puddle Ducks have been teaching children to swim for 16 years and have been franchising for 11 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.

Our franchises are owned and operated by a diverse team of professionals, many of whom are women, who have been solicitors, accountants, teachers, midwives and senior managers. They now dedicate their energy and expertise to running their own business, whilst still having the flexibility to enjoy family life.

We are proud winners of numerous awards in recent years based on anonymous feedback from franchisees, including the Smith+Henderson 5* Franchisee Satisfaction Award for the past 6 years.
