Warringah Aquatic Centre has swimming lessons for all ages and abilities. You can start your 18 month old with familiarisation classes or bring your older children to regular lessons at their swimming level. If you have a diver in the family, we’ve got that covered too.

These 30 minute classes are great for children over 18 months. Jump in with your child and we’ll introduce them to skills such as blowing bubbles, kicking legs and floating. Safety skills such as safe entry, floating and returning to the side of the pool will be introduced and reinforced.
