Swimming lessons, stroke correction for kids & adults

Our swim school offers a warm, caring environment where individual needs are met.We have been running since 2010. We run classes throughout the year, only taking a small break during the festive season at the end of the year.

Parent & infant lessons

We offer a fun a loving environment for babies and toddlers to learn water safety skills and learn how to swim according to their individual milestones. Water is a natural extension of a child’s environment and they are allowed to learn through play. Every baby and toddler can be taught to be water safe without trauma. We use the Aquatots swim program developed by internationally renowned infant aquatic expert Nell White.

Learn to swim

For all children over the age of 3, and of all abilities. Our classes teach children to be safe in and around the pool, how to swim independently and the progress on to learning strokes. We offer stroke correction and get children up to squad level.

Adult swimming lessons

No one is ever to old to learn to swim! We work with adults on their indidvual goals and work with all abilities. Swimming is a life skill and everyone can learn.

Domestic classes

Whether you would like your domestic workers to learn how to be safe in and around the pool or get them fully water safe and swimming, we offer classes at a discounted rate in the mornings.

Special needs swimming lessons

We have qualified teachers that have done specific special needs courses who are passionate about teaching these children how to swim. Water is therapy and we work with individuals of all disabilities and disorders.

Extra mural swimming lessons for nursery schools

We work with a transport company to offer swimming lessons at our centre to nursery schools in the area.

Private lessons

Where we can, we are able to offer private classes to those needing more individual attention.

Both my boys learned to swim at Whale of a Time swimschool. They love the water! The facilities are great. We loved that we could swim in a warm indoor pool all year round. The best part is the amazing teachers! They’re all very kind and professional.
