Moving into Cygnet level compounds the skills learnt in Ducking, encouraging independence to ‘hold on’ by themselves, and ensuring parents are confident to release baby both from a ‘Ready Splash’ position and also during a short swim.
Reaching out for a ball becomes much easier and is a valuable skill to achieve. The concept of turning is introduced in this level as an essential life-saving skill. Two consecutive submersions are encouraged as a progression on from Duckling and babies need to be happy and confident doing this before moving into Dolphins. We also start to teach parents how to do an extended swim, which can be a challenge when it comes to multitasking.
NOTE: Anyone booking on other than duckling must speak to us first to be put in the right class. Those who have swum with other baby swim companies are welcome but must be assessed first before booking on. Please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
