To ensure your child is placed into the class that best meets their standard, we recommend a Free assessment for children over 5 years of age. Contact us and we can arrange a time for you.
Parents or Guardians are required to hop in the water with their child when they are under the age of 3 years.
Lessons go for duration of 30 minutes, higher levels are held a little longer.
For our pre-school classes, there is a maximum of 4 per class. With school aged children, the class size increase’s in proportion to their skill level.
When a medical certificate is supplied we are able to credit up to 4 lessons a term for any illnesses. We do not do make-up lessons here at Don Tatnell Leisure Centre, we do give you up to 2 Comp Passes (selection of pass options to choose from) per child, per term.
Watch round the water guidelines are followed at our centre, these state that any child in the centre under the age of 5 must be supervised at all times, if in the water a parent, instructor or guardian must be within arms length. Children under the age of 10 must be actively supervised in and out of the water.
Most certainly, as long as our Watch around the Water guidelines are followed. (Under 5 years, Parent or Guardian must be in the water within arm length at all times, Under 10 years must be actively supervised at all times).
Children are assessed throughout the Term, all assessments are finalised by the re-enrolment period. Instructors will pass the children a card if they have progressed to the next level, these needs to be taken to Customer Service where your options will be discussed with you.
It is not uncommon for the swimmer to remain in the same class for several terms as all children learn at a different rate. It important to ensure all skills is performed competently before progressing to the next level.
