Duck & Dive a family run swim school specialising in babies from aged zero to three years and Learn to Swim from 3 to 5 years.
Teaching your baby to swim not only gives them valuable life skills, but also builds their confidence in the water and is a lovely bonding experience for baby and parent. Through their fun yet structured baby swimming lessons they teach parents to swim with babies from 0 to 3 years, in a warm, relaxed and calm environment.
At Duck and Dive they have developed a comprehensive lesson program designed to introduce parents and babies to the water and develop skills like back floating, kicking their legs, holding on to the pool side, paddling their arms, blowing bubbles and much more. Whilst the initial stages are a gentle introduction to swimming, babies will eventually go beyond water familiarisation and the baby swim lessons are geared towards gaining skills essential for water safety. This is done by integrating lots of different activities and making use of inventive techniques as well as of specially adapted songs, toys and aquatic equipment, all of which work together to create very varied and fun lessons. The lessons are thirty minutes in duration. For class schedules, refer to website as each term varies.
