All swim instructors are Austswim accredited and have current first aid and CPR qualifications.
 
Baby classes are held in the indoor hydrotherapy pool with parents accompanying their child in the water; an ideal location for infants to enjoy the comfortable temperature and allowing greater focus on the lesson.
 
The scope of lessons allows children to develop at their own pace assisted by swim instructors.  Each swimming level has a number of assessment outcomes, which when achieved allows the child to progress to the next stage.Swim school teacher with student
 
All stages are held in specific pools based on the outcomes of each stage.  Generally, as participants progress to the more advanced stages they are required to swim greater distances, moving from the leisure pool to the 25m indoor lap pool and then onto the 50m outdoor competition pool.
 
All classes operate for 30 minutes with squad training extending out to 45 minutes. Class sizes are kept small to provide a high teacher to student ratio.
 
The Aqua Jetty offers one-on-one and small group (2-3) inclusion swimming lessons.
