What is Rubba Duckies?
Rubba Duckies is not your regular swim school, with one standard swimming program that teaches children water skills, so we can tick the boxes and give each child a level and a badge.
At Rubba Duckies we see each child as an individual.
We teach each child to their specific needs, and at the level they are comfortable at. We explain to each child why they are doing each step and make sure the learner is happy and understands.
As teachers, we look at the personality type of the child we are teaching,
Are they outgoing or shy?
Are they nervous, or does their confidence out shine their ability?
We work and teach them in accordance to their personality.
We also take into account what type of parents they have;
Is their parenting style gentle or competitive?
Is the goal of the parent for their child to have fun, or is the parent there to achieve a certain goal as quickly as possible?
Once the teacher has established all of this, it is our job to make sure the children have the best possible experience in the water.
We are there to teach them a life skill, and show them how much fun water can be!
It is our job to get them water safe, but also make them LOVE their lessons, through play and making them know just how special they are, and that they are not just another number in the class.
That is why we keep our classes small; so we can learn what their interest are, and have a relationship with each child.
If a child has fun, and is praised for the positive they do,
-They will keep trying
-And if they keep trying
-They will not give up
-And they will SUCCEED
Rubba Duckies is a family, we are all one and we are there to support everyone; staff, parents and children!
