Learn to Swim

Welcome to Artemis Aquatics Learn to Swim.

Our goal is to inspire all children to love the water and be strong capable swimmers.

about our LEARN TO SWIM classes

Our unique Learn to Swim Program maintains a small student to teacher ratio to allow for more focused attention on each child’s development. The program follows a customised and personalised approach to teach skills in a logical progression from any level of skill, confidence or experience. We call this our personalised Learn To Swim framework.

Our teachers are trained to develop each swimmer on an individual basis and our small class sizes allow for a personalised experience relative to each swimmer’s ability.

We ensure that all swimmers develop sound technique in freestyle, as well as gaining a good understanding of other strokes from an early age. Water safety and personal survival skills are a primary focus at every level of the program.

The Learn to Swim program is available for late pre-school (four year olds) and primary school students.

Within the framework, there are four progressive stages of learning and development which are founded on the type of swimmer who enters the program: Beginner, Learner and Swimmer.

A progressive approach to distance (8m – 12m – 25m) allows swimmers to build maturity, concentration and physical capacity incrementally until they are ready to join the Dolphin Squad.

A virtuous cycle of community

We value the importance of community, and creating a safe, welcoming and friendly environment. A majority of our teaching team are current and former Melbourne Girls Grammar students who share a passion in learning, giving back and caring for their younger sisters and brothers!

We believe that investing in ongoing teacher training and development through our mentoring program and in-house workshops is integral to their enjoyment, support and sense of belonging. Most importantly, we see the benefits of this paid forward in the swimmers taking lessons.

Led by our Head of Aquatics, Luke Gavin, this ensures a graduated development pathway from learn to swim classes to our swimming club.
