Hear from our families

 My 10yo has swim lessons there for years and last two years has done one on one lessons (she is autistic). The instructors were so patient with her. Just lovely people. — Marita 

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

Yarra is great. A lot of different age instructors. My kids love it there have been going great. — Jus

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
