About Us

Founder of aquaDucks

Established in 1989, aquaDucks started at the Hollandse Club Singapore with 35 children in the program. The program grew steadily and soon I was teaching over 500 children.

Fast forward to 2017 and all Glory goes to God, for miracles do happen! We
are blessed with a vibrant and passionate team of over 40 staff from all over the world, full of very special people with a great love for children and the swimming profession.

The program has grown many folds and we now have the honour of teaching
in 8 venues across the island. Through the years we have taught thousands of children to be safe, proficient and to love the water. Many of our ex-students have become National Age Group Champions when returning to their home countries. There are also quite a few of our ex-students who have chosen swim teaching as their career and have become a valuable asset to our teaching team.

We are the pioneer and leading swim school in Singapore for babies and pre-school swimming, and are dedicated to continual learning and adaptation of our program with the goal to give the best service possible to our valued clients.

On behalf of the aquaDucks team, I wish you all a warm welcome!

Come Join the fun!

Koen Verhoef
Managing Director.




Our Swimming Programme

aquaDucks™ swimming programme caters to every individual in Singapore from the age of six months onwards. aquaDucks™ has a unique programme made up of a blend of the best of European, USA and Australian teaching techniques. The programme is further streamlined and refined by experts from our in house team.


Our programme has a total of 19 different levels/awards. To cater to every capability and comfort zone, these awards cover many different aspects, including water safety skills and technical skills.

Our Goal

The main goal of our programme is to instil confidence and enhance water safety knowledge using a child-centred approach. “Safety first” is continually the focus of the programme. In order to maximize this, children must learn how to be independent and to respect water. No flotation devices (i.e. arm bands, floaties) are used during the lessons and children are taught to float independently under the supervision of an adult and expert instructor. Progression is made at the child’s pace, with the coach carefully monitoring to ensure that pleasure and confidence is not compromised at any time.
