Infants Swimming Lessons - 6 months to 3 years.

The Infants Program provides a structured group lesson according to the age of the infants. The lessons are carried out in a relaxed, nurturing and peaceful learning environment for both the infant and the parent. Our teachers will never instruct your baby to submerge, perform a back float or participate in any activity they are not ready for or happy to engage in. All children in our Infant Program must wear a reusable, environmentally friendly Happy Nappy. Prior to the first lesson, parents are required to participate in a free introductory session conducted by our expert Infants Program staff.

Preschool and Primary Swimming Lessons - 3-5 years

Our Preschool age children start to develop greater water confidence and familiarisation. They learn to interact with the group, follow basic instructions and learn independently. Preschool age children progress from beginner level to floating and swimming unaided using basic strokes. 5+ years For primary school age children the program focuses on water safety skills, stroke development and correction in order to assist in the transition to competitive swimming. Our Pool Deck Supervisors and Learn to Swim teachers are constantly monitoring your child's progress. During our ongoing assessments, our staff will notify parents when your child is ready to progress to the next level. Upon reaching the next level a certificate will be presented along with feedback regarding your child's learning outcomes.
