in this level encouraging independent movement around the pool whilst holding on to the side.
In this level we also bring in dive sticks, rings, and the ever popular ‘Zoggies’ giving the babies their first opportunity of picking up an item held under the water. This is great fun and done best when sat with your baby on the steps. You can also practise in the bath! Around this level babies can go through various development stages, such as ‘separation anxiety’, learning to walk, and the ever-present problem of teething! These can be exceptionally challenging times for parents, no matter how committed, and they can sometimes see previously happy and confident Eaubaby morph into a very unhappy individual. This is a perfectly normal stage of development and all out teachers have been trained to advise and help you as well as offering fact sheets to help you through this difficult time and move you both into the next phase of swimming which will see you and your child enjoying it once again.
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
