We are working hard behind the scenes to get ready for the 2022 to 2023 swimming lesson season. More information to come in the coming weeks. 

In the preschool swimming program, children learn to become more independent in the water and begin to develop important water survival skills.

Children will learn skills in:

  • body orientation;
  • propulsion and submersion;
  • basic stroke development;
  • personal and water safety.

Our swimming teachers

Our teachers hold nationally accredited swimming teacher and water safety certificates. They have current CPR and first aid certificates, and have training in safeguarding children and young people.

Program levels

Teachers assess and progress children through the program levels, based on their individual ability.
