Parent & Child (Baby and me)

Children from 12 weeks old in a group environment.

Swim England Duckling stages 1 - 5

Ducklings stages 1 to 5 are also available here for children over 18 months. The aim of these classes is for the child to explore and enjoy yourselves whilst learning to swim.

Each grade of the Duckling Awards contains 6 key components, all of which must be passed before the award is acquired.

Stage 1 starts with simply wetting the pupils head, and goes right up to stage 5 where the pupil will jump into the pool (be fully submerged) and also swim 5 metres unaided.

Stages 1 - 8

On teaching stages 1 - 3, we have a maximum of 6 children in the group, with a level 2 and a level 1 Assistant Teacher in the water to help with their confidence and therefore progress more swiftly. On teaching stages 4 -8 we will accommodate a maximum of 8 in a group.

Upon booking into a group, all children receive their Narwhal passport book and swimming cap.
