aquaDucks‘ unique programme is a blend of the best European, American and Australian teaching techniques.
The main goal of the programme is to instil confidence and enhance water safety knowledge through a child-centred approach, with the coach carefully monitoring to ensure that pleasure and confidence are not compromised at any time. aquaDucks offers the following primary class options.
Suitable for children between six months and 4 years, this parent-accompanied programme focuses on parent-and-child bonding within the child’s comfort zone. The emphasis is on building confidence through songs and games and learning to be skilful and safe in and around the water. Submersion and personal survival skills are also practiced when your child displays his/her readiness.
Great for kids between 3 and 5, the programmes focuses on personal safety, health/stamina building, rough motor skills and breath control. Sessions are also kept to a teacher-student ratio of 1:4.
Focusing on personal water safety, responsible supervision of children in and around the swimming pool, tips on educating children on water safety as well as rescue techniques in emergencies, the programme is conducted by Coach Marilou, who is a highly qualified female instructor and is also fluent in Tagalog.
“My two children have been training with aquaDucks for 3 years now. I’m impressed by the patience of the staff, especially Coach Jens and Coach Anna. They have gained my kids’ trust and my children have improved fantastically. I’d recommend aquaducks to anyone looking for swimming coaches who teach with care and are animated in their approach. – Elizabeth Anstiss, mum to Arthur, 5,and Ruedi, 3
