Hear from our families

The quality of instructors this year has been fantastic. They are clear and loud and communicate well with the children. Showing examples, display, repeat instructions and keep the kids attention and keep them working. Great to see a lot more technique correction given to the children. - 8 Dec 2023

All three of my kids all learnt at Yarra Swim School. From nervous preschoolers to competitive accomplished swimmers. We love it! — Linda

So proud of how far my daughter has come with her swimming. So much confidence, jumps in, swims independently and looks forward to going. Massive shoutout to her teacher, Louise for this and having her involved doing the intensive program. Totally worth it! — Sarah

We've been going for 3 yrs. Very happy with the lesson structure and instructors for babies and toddlers. — Phillippa

We have been going here for six months, and have nothing negative to say about it. The teachers have been fantastic, very engaged with the kids, and I have seen such an improvement in their swimming. The holiday programs are fantastic too. — Roslyn
