Give them the skills to live their best life.

At its core, our structured swimming program will teach children of the 3-5 year age group confidence in swimming solo, essentials skills for building strokes and crucial safety awareness.

At Aquatic Achievers, our kids swimming lessons are about so much more than just learning to swim. In our program, we’ll also develop fundamental building blocks for many other important areas of a child’s life.

Safety 1st

As children grow, becoming increasingly mobile (and curious), safety becomes a real priority. Nurturing water-aware children is core to what we do, and we continue to build Safe-Skills through dedicated initiatives such as Safety Week and Endurance Week.

Learning to learn

Swimming lessons for kids are one of the first structured learning environments that children encounter. Routines, turn-taking, group interaction, and repetition are just a few of the simple but crucial skills a child must develop as they start their lifelong journey of learning.

Social Skills

In the lead-up to school especially, swimming becomes a crucial element of fitting in for children. School swimming programs and carnivals, a day at the beach or a waterpark with friends, even summer in the family pool — it’s all made possible through the water confidence learnt in kids swimming lessons.

Building blocks

Pro Surfer? Marine Biologist? Dolphin Trainer? Swimming is at the core of so many wonderful things we enjoy. It is also a valuable building block in many children’s future careers (they just don’t know it yet). Give your child the head start and the freedom to pursue a life of endless possibilities.

Our Starter Sessions are designed to allow families the chance to:

– Experience Aquatic Achievers and its program

-Assess your child’s ability and recommend the right level to start in.

-Answer any questions you might have around starting lessons.

Does my child need their own equipment for swimming lessons? 

All your child will need for their swimming lesson is appropriate swimwear, swim cap, and goggles.


Where can I find kids’ swimming lessons near me? 

Aquatic Achievers have kids swimming schools located across Australia in New South Wales, ACT (Canberra), Queensland and Victoria, that cater to 3–5-year-olds. Whether you’re looking for swimming lessons Sydney-side, in Melbourne, or Brisbane; all you need to do is find your nearest swim school and book in a swimming lesson for your child — it’s that easy.


Are your instructors certified to teach children swimming?

Yes! Swim instructors at Aquatic Achievers are certified by Austswim, which is one of Australia’s leading industry partners. Our instructors have all completed (at a minimum) a ‘Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety’ training course and are highly capable of teaching and looking after groups of children in the water.

Aquatic Achievers consistently ensure that all of our team members are fully qualified and regularly attend refresher classes, workshops, and re-certification courses.


Can I watch my kid’s swimming lessons?

Absolutely — parents are encouraged to watch their children’s lessons. At Aquatic Achievers, most centres have dedicated on and off-pool deck viewing areas, where you can watch, support, and encourage your child during their swimming lesson.


Do I need to be in the water?

By the ages of 3-5, your child is safe in the water with our dedicated swimming trainers,  without the need for a parent in the water. You are still welcome to watch and encourage your child from one of our dedicated viewing areas, which are close by the pool.


How often should my child have swimming lessons?

At Aquatic Achievers, we recommend bringing your child to one swimming lesson a week to help them build confidence in the water and keep them excited to keep coming back. Your child will need practice and patience to unlock their swimming potential, and the only way to get that is to keep coming back for more specialist kids swimming
