Duck & Dive Baby Swim School: Baby Swimming Lessons

  • Mums & Bubs

Established in 2014, Duck & Dive prides itself on being a genuine family-run swim school. Specialising in baby swimming (0 to 3 years of age) as well as offering Learn to Swim classes for 3 to 5 years of age.

This reputable and well-established swim school host swimming lessons in their Artarmon and Kogarah pools, both of which are heated to a cosy 32 degrees year round and have UV treated sparkly water (meaning nasty bugs like cryptosporidium and gardia are not a problem and the water is much kinder to eczema conditions).

Teaching your baby to swim not only gives them valuable life skills but also builds their confidence in the water and is a genuine bonding experience for you both. The core of Duck & Dive's baby swim classes is to achieve essential skills for water safety: through Duck & Dive's fun and structured baby swimming lessons, they teach parents to swim with their babies in a warm, relaxed and calm environment by experienced highly trained teachers.

The comprehensive Duck & Dive lesson program has been developed over 20 years of experience, designed to introduce parents and babies to the water and develop lifelong skills. Whilst the initial stages are a gentle introduction to swimming, babies will quickly move beyond water familiarisation to early life-saving skills and gross motor movements that lead to early stroke development.

Water safety is serious, but learning is fun and memorable thanks to Duck & Dive!

I have been taking my daughter since she was 3 months ... she's now almost 2 years old and her confidence in the water, listening to safety commands and pure enjoyment is amazing. The team at Duck & Dive are like a family. Understanding when your child has a bad day, sick or just wants to float! Highly recommend them.

loved our lessons with Duck and Dive. fantastic teachers and great sing songs. my little bub just adored the lessons and can't wait to get into the water and splash about. great teachers, they really got to know each child, yes in the 30 min class! but meant that each child was confident in the water and with the teacher. each lesson build on the last, and each term we progressed. can't recommend highly enough!

Love our lessons with Duck & Dive! We've been attending since bubs was just 8 weeks old. We like the small class sizes and personal attention. Highly recommended.
