The Discovery Duckling Awards are the start of the learn to swim experience for all children. These awards are perfect for babies and toddlers and pre-school children who are new to swimming lessons. Ideal for gaining water confidence while staying close to adult support!
With small groups of 4/5 pairs, our Discovery Ducklings sessions provide the relaxing atmosphere needed for a constructive yet enjoyable session. Focusing on discovery and confidence, sessions allow your little one to explore within the water, to have fun whilst unknowingly learning and to socialise with others – preparing little swimmers for the fun to be had in Learn to Swim sessions.
Discover – Age 3 to 12 months
Ducklings – Age 1 to 3 years
Discover sessions follow the Swim England Adult & Child framework, and aim to provide Adults with the social, bonding and relaxation the water can offer, whilst allowing little one to discover the water in a fun, warm and exciting environment.
