Specially designed sessions to allow the other carer or grandparent to come and have some fun family swim time! (Artarmon pool only).
A great opportunity to take your own photos too!
AquaPlay is a chance to extend your swim time beyond the regular 30 minute lesson but in a casual, relaxed environment. This is playtime for babies, toddlers and carers so not the usual structure of a class and of course the music will be pumping! You are welcome to take your own photos (strictly no underwater photography allowed). Here’s how it works….
The pool is split into 6 socially distanced sections. Each section easily accommodates a family group of up to 2 adults and 2 children.
– 2 x noodle/mat/fin zones (1 with slide)
– 2 x platform sections
– 2 x inflatable floaty sections
– Each section rotates every few minutes
Total run time 45 minutes
Cost $40 per family
These sessions are specifically to encourage partners and grandparents to be involved.
Each section may be occupied by a maximum of 2 carers, 1 baby and 1 sibling. All must be of the same family. (Consider whether this small space is appropriate if any of the family group is between 2 and 5).
All usual swimming lesson rules apply regarding nappies
Terms and conditions below apply. Please read before you book
Your ticket is for your family group only.
Your group must be of the same family.
Children must be aged 0-3 years. Learn to swim children aged 3 to 5 who are Duck and Dive clients may attend under strict supervision.
There will be a mix of ages in the pool at any one time. Carers must respect their surroundings, other pool users, be responsible for their child and follow any instructions or requests from Duck and Dive staff. The pace of the sessions is generally calm and relaxed but there will be some splashing from older Ducks practicing their skills and we encourage this!
For parents with young babies, your child will one day be a confident little duck, splashing around confidently! For parents with older babies, remember how anxious you may have been with your little one when they were in the pool for the first time!?

There are many swim lesson providers for babies and toddlers all over the city, offering different programs. Many other programs are based on water familiarity and building confidence through song and rhyme. At the Duck and Dive baby swim school we go beyond these basic stages, as we recognise the importance of survival skills and aim to nurture a lifelong love of the water…
