Taking your first dip with your little one can be daunting and our classes are structured to show you how to gently and safely enter, exit and support your baby in the water and how to stimulate their natural reflexes in the water.
There will be lots of songs, swishes and play during your water session and as you attend each week you will be introduced to new water skills and reinforcing previous skills.
The ASA Discovery Duckling Awards are the start of the learn to swim experience for all children. These awards are perfect for babies and toddlers and pre-school children who are new to swimming lessons.
Ideal for gaining water confidence while staying close to adult support, these awards are followed by the existing Duckling Awards.
The Discovery Duckling Awards 1-4 each have their own certificate, badge and sticker.
