Duck and Dive love that baby swimming is something to be celebrated and shared. However our primary objective is to provide first class tuition in an environment that is welcoming and comfortable for everyone.
Spectators are allowed BUT with rules!
First and foremost, you MUST respect carers who wish to socially distance – even if you don’t!
Second, YOU are responsible for making sure that spectators know our rules before arrival.
ONE spectator may accompany a baby and carer. Don’t push it by bringing two please! And any spectator who is coming in another car MUST park on the street, even if there are loads of spaces.
Our reception space is limited. Additional spectators will need to come to view a future lesson another week.
Your spectator/baby/carer GROUP OF 3 are to wait at reception until the class in progress as not just when the lesson in progress has finished but when the class has EXITED THE POOL HALL.
Sometimes reception is not attended by Duck & Dive, PLEASE STAY IN RECEPTION UNTIL THE TEACHER/RECEPTION CALLS YOU IN. Don’t start rushing in as the door opens – this is not how social distancing works 🙂
If you have no spectators with you, please don’t enter the pool hall waiting for a class to start, you will just confuse everything. Stay in reception. This includes learn to swim clients with kids aged 3+
Photography of YOUR CHILD ONLY is allowed during lessons.
Spectators can take A FEW SECONDS OF VIDEO or 1 or 2 photographs.
Spectators need to remain seated and socially distanced. They may only photograph from their seated area.
Teachers DO NOT want to be photographed (unless you have asked them)
You may avoid being inadvertently photographed by stationing yourself towards the rear of the pool.
Once again for clarity:
1 car per baby
wait in reception
short video and 1 or 2 pics
spectators stay seated
social distance everywhere
in and out quickly to maximise pool time
ensure your spectators know these rules before arrival
And just to be Captain Obvious, no-one is to enter our building who is ill, has a cold etc!
PLAY FAIR FOLKS because Duck and Dive reserve the right to amend or withdraw “spectators/photography allowed” at any time!
Don’t forget we are teaching you how to swim your bub so you can swim on your own. Take your spectators and cameras to your local pool and knock yourself out!
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…
