Bookings are now open for Duck and Dive swimming lessons for term 1 2019!
Please note that these are all sold on a first come, first served basis.
Only book on if your baby is less than 12 months old as at date of first lesson with no experience required. If older, please call us as this level is not appropriate. Also, if baby is less than 5.5 kilos at the start of term then we need to chat first.
The course runs for 10 weeks.
The cost is $265 at Broadway and Kogarah and $285 at Artarmon. Payment is due in advance.
Each lesson lasts for 30 minutes (any longer and the little ones get tired and grumpy) once a week.
There is a maximum of 10 clients in the pool with their baby during any one lesson, fewer for our toddler classes.
Nappies – as you would expect, we need to ensure that the pools we use are kept as hygienic as possible and that little accidents are kept to a minimum. ALL our children wear a double nappy system which means they wear a disposable swimming nappy eg. Huggies Little Swimmers with a Splashabout Happy Nappy on top. You can buy one of these from us. It is a reusable garment made from a soft neoprene with bands around baby’s thighs and tummy which helps to keep everything where it should be and not in the pool! Strictly NO NAPPY, NO SWIMMY! So, when you are in your account, click on the “product purchase” link to add the nappy to your account. **before buying this product elsewhere, consider that there are no postage costs when purchasing from us as we bring them to the lesson.
Full terms and conditions can be read before you sign up.

What else does Duck and Dive offer?
Aqua Play and Mothercraft sessions – A great way to have a play in the water for 30mins and then sit down with our in-house nanny to chat about any issues you may be having with your bub!
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…
