The Duckling Awards. The beginning of your little ones swimming journey.
Aged between 2 and 4 years old with water experience. We would be delighted to invite your little one to join us as a Duckling! 1:1/2:1 session run with an instructor in the water, so you can enjoy viewing from poolside!
Our little ducklings enjoy varied sessions that focus on basic movement skills within the water- all fun and games based to build vital water confidence and trust.
Ducklings follow a four stage framework that gradually progresses toddlers awareness, confidence and skills to prepare them for the enjoyment that awaits within the Learn to Swim Stages. Colorful badges and certificates aid this progression by providing motivation and excitement!
Swimming is so much fun- so learning to swim should be fun too! We encourage play, discovery, exploration – all important attributes of any session focused on children not yet of school age.
All little ones develop at their own pace and all should be encouraged to discover what they are capable of achieving in a safe, relaxed and trusting environment.
By using a range of innovative flotation devices, toys and resources, we have fun in the water – learning vital safety and movement skills without the little ones recognizing what they are achieving!
“Play is the highest form of research”Albert Einstein
