Swimming Lessons

Your children will be given the opportunity to explore the water in a safe and encouraging environment. A range of equipment will be used to support skill development, in our beautiful indoor heated pool at Great Ocean Road Resort, which enables lessons to be offered all year round. 


Classes will run for 25 minutes, allowing 5 minutes for discussion with students and parents/carers to facilitate feedback and ensure clear communication of skill progression. 


Lessons on offer will include infant and preschool aquatics for children aged 6 months to 4 years, as well as swimming and water safety skills from 4 years and over. Parents or carers will be able to join their little ones in the water until they’re old enough to start swimming independently in our beautiful indoor facility, located in Anglesea. We understand the importance of ensuring both child and parent feel comfortable, safe and supported and look forward to offering a wonderful learning experience. 

“The ultimate gift of being a teacher is to impart knowledge and skills in children which they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.”
