Parent Child Program

4 months – 3 years

Our baby swimming lessons program is aimed at babies from four months to three years of age. It’s a great, fun way to introduce your baby to all the exciting adventures they can experience in the water.

Research (Griffith University 2013) has shown that children who participate in early swimming lessons reach many developmental milestones earlier than their peers, both in and out of the pool.

Our Parent Child swim-school programs (Wonderbabies and Wondertots) have been designed to allow all babies to be extended in the appropriate way for their; age, developmental readiness, and ability, so there is always the perfect class for your baby.

We teach safety and survival skills, in a nurturing way, from the very first lesson. We believe that children who have respect for the water will be safer, quicker. Our classes focus on water comfort, mobility, safety and survival, whilst building on their learning from land into water using colours, shapes, sounds and touch.

As a parent or carer, you get to be in the water with your little one, enjoying this bonding experience together and sharing some uninterrupted one-on-one time. Baby swimming lessons are a fun and exciting way to make new connections with other mums/dads whilst you all celebrate the progression of your little ones together.

Our teachers are specially trained to understand your child’s needs, with the aim of having your child able to swim independently, and transition smoothly into our Learn to Swim program at the age of three.

Learn to Swim Program

3 years plus

From around three years and above, we offer swimming lessons to children on their own, without their parents.

Our learn to swim program provides great opportunities for children to develop life-saving water safety and survival skills and become competent swimmers in a tension free, fun and exciting environment.

We teach survival skills at every level and in our lower levels we spend a minimum of 10 minutes per lesson in deep water, where we teach treading water, deep water recovery (safety circle) and mobility on front and back until children have achieved 2 minutes treading water.

Children learn by doing, so we make sure your children have maximum participation time in every lesson, which helps them progress faster. Your child will be assessed during every lesson, and once they have achieved the swimming skills of that level they will progress to more challenging skills. If you’re ever wondering what is left to achieve, have a chat with our deck manager who can run you through what the teacher has observed/assessed or check your swimmers progress via the customer portal or app. Simply login, go to My Account, select your swimmer and view evaluations to see how they are tracking.

Adult Program

Beginner to experienced

Being in and around water is such a great part of living in Australia, but we understand that some people’s swimming abilities prevent them from achieving what they would like in the water and from engaging in these wonderful experiences.

We offer adult classes for all levels, from non-swimmers through to those looking for technique refinement.

So whether your goal is to complete a triathlon, go surfing, or simply play with your family comfortably at the beach or pool, we have lessons to suit your needs! Learn swimming in our indoor pool within a safe, non-judgemental environment that allows you to flourish at your own pace.

Our Holiday swim Programs provide intensive swimming instruction and practice, with a view to accelerating the development of swim and survival skills. The program provides excellent development opportunities while providing a fun way for kids to enjoy their school holidays.

Classes are run over consecutive days across the course of a week and are open to current and non-current customers.
