At Duck and Dive we’ve developed a comprehensive lesson program designed to introduce parents and babies into 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 baby swimming they go beyond water familiarisation and are still geared towards water skills essential for water safety. This is done by integrating lots of different activities and inventive use of specially adapted songs, toys and aquatic equipment creating very varied and fun lessons.
here are many baby and toddler swim schools in Sydney offering different programs many of which are based on water familiarity and building confidence through song and rhyme. At Duck and Dive we go far and beyond this as we recognise the importance of survival skills and aim to nurture a life long love of the water.
Having only 1 lesson in our comfortably heated pools at a time ensures there is little distraction and is a much more relaxed environment for baby and carer alike.
Whilst our innovative and creative programs have a real focus on water safety and survival skills, we have not lost sight of our baby swimming lessons being a fun and very friendly social opportunity for bubs and parents alike.
Choose Duck and Dive
And of course our teachers are nothing short of amazing! At Duck and Dive the recruitment starts with personality before anything else. After qualifying with Austswim or Swim Australia and becoming Teachers of Infant and Preschool Aquatics, candidates undergo further rigorous training as a Duck and Dive instructor before becoming fully fledged and getting their “wings”.
Many of our teachers have come through the ranks as clients and found themselves continuing their path with Duck and Dive as a teacher. In addition to their extensive knowledge of the program, this also makes them very empathic with you and understand any uncertainties you may have as a carer or “wobbles” your little one encounters. Their enthusiasm, patience, care and understanding of our program and how it develops babies are what set us apart from many other baby swim schools.
