Create. Explore. Nurture.

Duck & Play is located in Artarmon in Sydney’s lower north shore.

The market is cluttered with programs and services for parents and children offering many benefits and developmental outcomes. From Baby Sensory classes to Baby Gyms … and at Duck & Play we’ve created a bespoke program that encapsulates all these programs into our own, clever and truly original program.” 

Duck & Play combines the best of these activities (plus a whole lot more) in a 10 week, term by term course hosted in our purpose built centre that also boasts sessions in a beautiful, warm, low chemical swimming pool.  

You can guarantee your place by purchasing the whole 10 week course that will challenge, stimulate and reward your zero to 3 year old as they Learn through Play.

If you are unable to commit to a discounted 10 week course then you can book as many drop in sessions as you like!

The Duck & Play Team

Duck and Play is a subsidiary of Duck and Dive Baby Swim School, Sydneys largest “baby only” swim school established in 2006 by husband and wife team Barbara and Adam. Duck & Play is an independent program from the swim school and does not provide swimming lessons. Visit Duck and Dive if you are looking for a baby swim school.

The weekly Duck & Play  sessions are hosted in the  studio or pool and the program is written and presented by your wonderful teacher Helen. With over 20 year’s experience in early childhood education and development, she is a trained lactation counsellor, sleep consultant and Mother to 2 children.

All Duck and Play / Duck and Dive team members are certified or qualified in every area in which they teach or host sessions and have current CPR certification.

The Duck & Play Facility

Our facility boasts a large range of equipment and a variety of toys that are either age specific or can be used dependent on your child’s cognitive and physical milestones.

The studio is air-conditioned, bright and exceptionally clean. We have a “shoes off” and “no phones” policy”.

The pool is purpose built and heated to a lovely 33 degrees. Water quality is enhanced by UV, the only treatment that kills 100% of all known pathogens.

The location is easily found in Sydney’s lower north shore and is less than 30 mins from the CBD and eastern/northern/western suburbs.

Parking is free, doorstep and under cover for those rainy days!
