DO YOU TEACH IN THE RAIN?

Of course we do! It’s the tropics after all. We generally have a quiet season from June – Aug, but are still teaching because water safety has no season. We close for Easter and Christmas Eve – January 2nd.

We do cancel lessons for extreme and unsafe weather and will notify all parents of cancellations.

HOW BIG ARE CLASS SIZES?

Our group lessons must have a minimum of 3 students and a maximum of 5 dependent on pool size. Our Tadpole Tots (mums and bub) can have up to 8 however this again will depend on pool size.

WHAT IF THEY’RE NOT THE SAME SKILL LEVEL?

As mobile instructors, we have the flexibility to tailor each lesson and class plan to you and your students. Firstly, we have a free 15 minute assessment with each family and swimmer so we can assess a students skill level and make recommendations on lesson type. If we have varying skill levels, the instructor will tailor activities to suit the abilities of the child. While we aim to create classes with their own levels, we do not want levels of achievement to be the focus of lessons.

We focus on water safety foundations, ensuring every child at every age and level, is able to utilise the life-saving skills of swimming in dangerous situations.

ARE YOU A SWIM SCHOOL?

No, we are AUSTSWIM accredited teachers who teach mobile swimming lessons. We encourage you to seek out a school in your local area, Royal life saving program or participate in lessons within your community because Water Safety Education is essential! Our goals are similar, but we have purposefully chosen not to register as a school because we believe in offering an alternative that is mobile and flexible, connecting with those who need it most.

  • ARE YOU COVERED BY INSURANCE?
  • WHY ARE BLOCK LESSONS PAID UPFRONT?
  • WHAT AGES DO YOU TEACH?
ARE YOU COVERED BY INSURANCE?

Yes – All instructors are members of ASCTA and are covered by at least a $10 million of personal and professional liability insurance.

WHY ARE BLOCK LESSONS PAID UPFRONT?

As mobile instructors we are committing to your student, your preferred lesson time and your area – even if we’re in Gordonvale for one lesson and Clifton Beach the next. We pride ourselves on coming to you, bringing water safety into your home.

As a small family busines, we’re able to offer this quality service and investment into each student and family because of full paid terms. We do not have the financial resources or class sizes of swim schools and are unable to be as flexible with payment.

WHAT AGES DO YOU TEACH?

We teach from 6months – 60, because water safety has no age!
