I recently had the pleasure of judging the Star Teacher award for baby and pre-school swimming lesson provider, Puddle Ducks West Berkshire.
As a keen club and county swimmer in my teenage years, plus building my business around family centric brands, I was delighted to be asked to support this brilliant Berkshire based business in their Spring term awards as they provide the perfect introDUCKtion to swimming!
Puddle Ducks Star Teachers
Each term, Puddle Ducks customers share feedback on their lessons and expert tuition via Star Teacher nominations. A winning entry is picked by a local independent judge to be entered into the running for the National Star Teacher award against other franchisees in the Puddle Ducks network. As Puddle Ducks have some of the most highly qualified teachers in the early years swimming industry, there is never a shortage of glowing nominations to choose from so I knew I had my work cut out.
Judging the awards
Being asked to judge the Spring Term Star Teacher awards was a flattering but tough task as all the entries were so lovely! In the end I picked the winning nomination because I felt it really showed what a difference Puddle Ducks Teachers are making to the lives of little ones and their families. From their very first time in the pool together to becoming confident young swimmers years later as they progress through their Puddle Duck’s classes, it’s clear to see that as well as providing key swimming skills and lots of fun in the pool there is a genuine care for the well being of customers out of the water too.”
The winning entry
The winning nomination came from James’ mum Megan and they voted for Jacqueline, who is both a swimming teacher and the owner of Puddle Ducks West Berkshire. View the winning entry here.
