In the preschool swimming program, children learn to become more independent in the water and begin to develop important water survival skills.
Children will learn skills in:
- body orientation
- propulsion and submersion
- basic stroke development
- personal and water safety.
Our swimming teachers
Our teachers hold nationally accredited swimming teacher and water safety certificates. They have current CPR and first aid certificates, and have training in safeguarding children and young people.
Teachers assess and progress children through the program levels, based on their individual ability.

Fees are paid fortnightly by direct debit. No lock-in contracts. 14 days written notice are required to cancel.
Fee per lesson Fortnightly Direct Debit Standard Rate $19.00 $35.10
Start-up Fee $30 per child
Not applicable if enrolled at a Boroondara Leisure and Aquatic Facility less than six months ago
Fees effective 1 July 2019 - 30 June 2020. All centre fees and charges undergo an annual pricing review
The cost of 48 program weeks is divided evenly over 52 weeks (26 fortnightly direct debit payments).
$19.00 per lesson x 48 weeks / 26 fortnights = $35.10 per fortnight.
Debits therefore occur beyond the program dates. The intent behind the 26 fortnightly debits per year is to minimise the cost impact to families by reducing the value of each debit.
