LEARN TO SWIM

We offer quality Learn To Swim classes from 6 months to adult, with the same exclusive program taught consistently at both Nepean Aquatic Centre and Eva Bory’s Swim School. Our teachers are AUSTSWIM qualified, and both centres are AUSTSWIM and Swim Australia registered. Swimming skills – particularly for children – are fundamental to every individual’s safety and overall development. And it’s great fun! Don't forget to check with your private health provider if you are eligible for Health Fund Rebates for swimming lessons. Come Swim With US!

WATER BABIES

We cater for babies classes from 6 to 30 months.
Our classes are tailored to the age and abilities of the children. Our new program was introduced in September 2010 after extensive investigations into the best practises within the learn to swim industry. Children have skills to be obtained within each level before advancing to the next level. In addition our program rotates through a 4 week program giving variety and maintaining the children's interest at the same time as practising the skills that we want them to achieve. Teaching your child to swim from a young age is giving them an important gift for life!

LEARN TO SWIM CLASSES

Following Water Babies, children are ready to Learn To Swim independently with our qualified instructors. Our emphasis is on both fun and achievement. Advancement through levels is at the child’s pace based upon the attainment of skills, with stickers and certificates rewarding the child’s effort. We maintain small class sizes and impressive instructor to child ratios, with weekly monitoring and assessment of skills. When first joining the program, your child will be placed in a group of children of similar swimming ability to begin, with their level reassessed as needed.
