Children of all abilities love the Amphibi-Kids experience. Whether your child is a complete beginner or can swim a little, we’ll have a class that’s just right for them.
We follow the Duckings Award Scheme and ASA National Teaching Plan. The children receive a report card at the end of each block detailing their progress and any awards they may have achieved.
