What is the water temperature?
Our pool heater keep the water temperature between 32 and 33 degrees which is the best temperature for babies.
What type of sanitization used for the pool?
We use Saltwater system to sanitized our water. The salt chlorinator uses electrolysis in the presence of dissolved salt (NaCl) to produce hypochlorous acid (HClO) and sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), which are the sanitizing agents already commonly used in swimming pools.
Do you consider age or ability when determining a child’s level?
Our primary consideration in determining your child’s level in our program, is their current ability as well as previous aquatic experience. Age is a secondary consideration, in that we will attempt to match students’ ages in a class to within two years. However, we cannot guarantee this range.
Do I have to stay at the pool while my child is having their lesson?
Yes. All children should be accompanied by a parent/carer, who must stay at the venue for the duration of the lesson.
What should my child wear for swimming lessons ?
Girls can wear one-piece togs and boys can wear briefs or tight fitting shorts. We request that no rash vests or baggy clothing is worn , as this creates drag and adversely affects stroke technique.
Infants, and all children not yet toilet trained need to wear an aqua nappy (eg Huggies Little Swimmers). We have it available for purchase at the pool.
What gear will my child need for swimming lessons ?
All toddler level classes need to have their own pair of goggles.

For Water Introduction: Yes, you will pay for a full 8 course while the remaining classes you may come for replacement.
For Toddlers: No, you will pay for the remainder of the course of lessons.
At what age should my child begin swim lessons?
We believe that children are ready to begin swim lessons in a group any time after they are 6 months old. The earlier that a child is enrolled into a Water Introduction program the better! Children who begin swim lessons before they are one year old generally accept the water more readily than older children. Fear of the water is acquired over time. The older a child is when first beginning a Water Introduction program, the more challenging it is to overcome any fear.
Remember, learning to swim is a life-saving skill–the best day to start lessons, was yesterday!
What if my child is scared or crying?
If your child is nervous or crying, please take a moment to chat with the instructor. Some children may suffer from separation anxiety, and this will go away as soon as the child gets to know and trust the instructor. A fear of new places may also cause a few tears, and this will also go away with time. Being afraid of the water is not uncommon in younger beginners, but the instructor will help your child adjust to the water through basic skills such as blowing bubbles, songs and games. With time, your child will be happy and successful in the water. Please be patient and allow the instructors and staff to work their magic with your child.
Should parent(s) be visible during the child’s lesson?
If the child is constantly asking for “Mummy or Daddy” throughout the lesson and if the teacher is having trouble competing for attention, it is generally best to have the parent “out of sight and out of mind” until the child begins to bond with and trust the teacher. Often, if the child thinks there is a sympathetic person close by who will “save them” from their “plight”, they will likely become melodramatic and emotionally distressed. We want parents to watch the entire lesson, but often prefer that they hide whenever their child becomes distracted by the possibility that Mom or Dad might bail them out of their situation.
Do you promote continuous year round swimming lessons?
Yes we believe in year round swim lessons because it has been proven that children learn to swim at a faster pace with consistency. Skipping a month or more, the child may tend to forget and need to refresh all over again.
What about holiday programs ?
During the school holidays we offer an intensive 4-5 days course (usually in the first week) specially for primary school student 7-12 years old. These provide a great way of learning and gaining skills quickly over a short period of time in preparation for the next term.
Details and bookings can be found here.
How quickly will my child learn how to swim?
Each child is unique and many different factors determine how quickly the child will learn to swim – the child’s developmental stage, previous experience in and around the water, as well as the child’s ability to adjust to a new environment. Please be patient and do not expect your child to make equal progress during each lesson. It is normal for a child’s learning to resemble a series of spikes and plateaus. Every child will ultimately learn to swim with proper instruction and continual support.
Please note that consistency over time is one of the keys to success. We ask that you do your best to consistently bring your child to swim class.
