Kids Swimming Lessons

  • 3 Pool System

    We have a unique 3-pool swimming teaching methodology, where each pool is purpose-built to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and learning of specific aquatic skills and abilities.

  • Progressive Instruction

    Our teaching methodology is rooted in fun-based activities which facilitate group learning through demonstration, repetition and skills progression.

  • Recognising Learning

    Each class type is divided into achievable outcomes, rewarded regularly with a Progress Certificate further encouraging and affirming learning.

  • Specific Teaching Units

    Each individual swimming lesson is further divided into highly specific units of physical movement, prepared before each lesson by our qualified instructors which guide swimmers to achieving outcomes based on their abilities.

The Stars Swimming School® learn to swim curriculum is structured around the achievement of each child’s developmental milestones. Children who are the same age may be at different developmental stages. Therefore, regardless of ability and skill acquisition, each child may belong to a learn to swim class type best suited to their developmental stage.

It’s more important to think of students as individual learners. Class placement depends on both the child’s physical ability and on the level of their cognitive and social/emotional development. As your child enters our group classes, his or her grouping will depend upon the achievement of a specific sequence of aquatic skills, many of which will not be apparent to parents watching from the deck, and many of which will be brand new to your child’s experiential learning opportunities.
