Kingswim offer indoor kids, babies, and toddler swimming lessons at our Deakin Centre in Canberra! From 12 weeks old through to adults, all are welcome to join us for swimming lessons at the Kingswim Deakin Swim School.
Simon, affectionately known as Simmo, has been working at Kingswim for almost 10 years. As someone who loves a chat, he’s a customer service guru. Simon keeps fit by body surfing and chasing after his two year old son Henry… both exercises have a high degree of difficulty! He has institutionalised the Friday kebab with the Deakin team. We love that Simon isn’t just great at teaching – he’s great at learning too. He has a new guitar and when he’s not talking about it, he’s coming along in leaps and bounds at playing it.
What lesson from his Mum does Simon still live by today? “Always wear clean underwear”.
Research has shown that babies who learn how to swim at a young age are reaching many developmental milestones earlier. It’s a wonderful experience that really can start early! We teach tiny tots through to big kids, with programs available to babies from 12 weeks of age.
To keep babies and children comfortable, we have a constant water temperature of between 32-33 degrees. For babies 3-6 months of age, we recommend a maximum time in the water of 30 minutes.
We’ve helped a lot of families in our time. So we know all the little things we can do to help make learning the essential life skill of swimming an enjoyable and meaningful experience for parents and kids alike. We have welcoming team members, family friendly change rooms, infant change areas and plenty of space for prams to make it easy for you to get changed once you’ve finished in the water. So yes, we consider ourselves to be very family friendly!
Better again…we offer a free introductory lesson! It’s a great way to find out more about us, and for us to get to know your child. After the free introductory lesson, one of our friendly supervisors will talk to you about which level is best suited to your child’s abilities. They’ll also be able to answer any other questions you may have about our program.
We had an amazing time at our first bub swim session, Lucas luved the water and I was really amazed at all the new things I learnt about how to hold your bub, so that they are able to become more familiar in the water and kick their legs. Loved it!!!
I have taken my son to their Baby Play lessons. These are fantastic at giving the babies a chance to experience and familiarise them with the pool environment. I would recommend them to everyone with young babies.
I have attended other pools and have left frustrated at how hard they seem to make it for people with bubs. Not at Kingswim though! I always leave happy.
We have 4We have been taking our 9 month old to swimming lessons at Kingswim and have found the small class sizes and professional teachers to be great. The whole centre, including the change rooms is kept toasty warm so that the littlies don’t get cold when they are out of the water.
