Baby and Preschool Swimming Lessons

Discovery Ducklings and Stage 1

The Sovereign Centre's Learn to Swim Programme follows the Swim England Pathway.  Our lessons ensure all swimmers are supported, whatever their ability.  From their first splash through to club level swimming.

The Preschool Learn to Swim Pathway

Discovery Ducklings 1-4

Preschoolers will move through Duckling Stages 1-4 with skills and age progression.  Ducklings 1-3 require an adult in the water and in Duckling 4 preschoolers attend their lesson alone for the first time.

Once preschoolers progress beyond the Duckling Classes they will enter the learn to swim programme, starting with Stage 1.

Stage 1

No parent in the water.  Suitable for preschool  children aged 4 years.  Preferably to have completed Duckling 4.
