Essential Questions You MUST Ask Before Entrusting Others with Your Children’s Safety

Who are you and how can you keep my child safe in the water?

At Aqua Tots Swimming School we have been providing a family friendly environment of aquatic education for many years. We focus on safety and survival in the water for young children and cater especially for families. Please see our testimonials page for what other parents say about us.

What makes you the best place for my child to learn to swim?

A very good question and we are glad you asked. Here are just a few reasons why you’re better off at Aqua Tots Swimming School than anywhere else:

  • Our water is kept at a beautiful 32° (like a warm bath) and our change rooms are heated as well, so you and the little ones stay warm in the water even in cold weather.
  • Our class sizes are small and our teachers are professional and committed to your child’s progress. Your child is assured to get more and better attention from our swimming teachers than anywhere else.
How long will it take for my child to learn to swim?

Our first goal is to ensure your child’s safety around water. Survival therefore is paramount and our program is focused on that. Once this is achieved, development of swimming skills follows. Our aim is for your child to swim 4 metres unaided by 2.5 – 3 years.

Is your pool heated?

Our pool is indoors, heated to 32 degrees, shallow and safe for parents, children and babies. Our change rooms are heated for comfort through the cooler months of the year.

Does your swimming program run by the term?

Our swimming program runs all year round. Research has concluded that a child needs to swim regularly to achieve results. Many children in fact go backwards on a term to term basis, particularly in their early years (babies) when it is so important for babies and children to learn to survive in the water. Term payments are still available on request.

Why are your class sizes so much smaller than other Swim Schools?

We have found that children achieve far better results with smaller classes as teachers are able to afford greater attention to each child. From a parent’s point of view, a relatively small higher fee has proven to be a great investment in your child’s water skills.

Are your teachers fully qualified?

Yes. All our teachers are Austswim qualified. The implementation of Australia’s leading swim school consultant, ‘Coach Cameron Roberts’ swim program ensures greater results. Our ongoing monthly teacher training enforces and enhances the benefits of Coach Roberts’ program.
The constant presence of our deck instructor also ensures standards are maintained.

Do you award swimming certificates?

Recognising a child’s efforts is crucial to their ongoing success in the water. Certificates are awarded on completion of each stage with ongoing assessments being made by the teacher involved together with the deck instructor.

Do you offer Family Discounts?
