Learn to Swim at North Lakes Aquatic Centre
Living in Queensland it is essential for young children to be taught the life saving skills of swimming. Learning to swim can be daunting at first, but once learnt will stick in the mind for life. North Lakes proudly offers an extensive learn to swim program for all abilities and ages, ensuring you and your children are safe when it comes to being in, on, and around water.
Swimming Australia and Belgravia Leisure have partnered to develop and deliver a new and effective swimming and water safety program focusing on contemporary experiential and activity-based learning, encouraging and supporting students to explore pathways into competitive and recreational lap swimming. Implementation of this high-quality, activity-based educational program is designed to better integrate student learning outcomes into real-world settings, offering students opportunity to:
• Gain maximum participation and practice time in activities that encourage, mentor and support the learning process where they are active for most of the lesson
• Be empowered to think, discuss and decide through experiential based learning where mentoring, guidance and challenge encourages them to use and enhance their knowledge, skill and understanding
• Learn and understand essential components of personal survival and water safety elements while concurrently in addition to development of establishing strong and effective swimming technique
• Be supported by professional, qualified teachers as they progress the through the curriculum.
The Learn to swim journey is powered by innovative technology: the Splash app and digital platform. It is designed to improve communication and interaction between swim school, parent and swimmer. Key technology features of Splash include swimmer notifications on achieving skills and milestones, digital awards, video messaging from the Australian Dolphin Swim team and chat functionality. Together our goal is to put the fun back into learning to swim and keep swimmers loving our sport for longer.

What guests have to say about North Lakes Aquatic Centre
“Highly recommended! Our son has been attending the centre since 6 months of age. The centre is very accommodating to rescheduling classes around sickness and work rosters. Our son just loves his teacher Amy and always have a ball with her in the water!”
“My family & I highly recommend north lakes aquatic centre. The staff are all lovely & professional & my little one has progressed so much since starting her lessons there. If you’re looking for a swim school, or a pool for leisure swimming, laps or a party, definitely pop in & speak with the staff & you’ll see for yourself very quickly what a friendly & inviting place it is. I also love that they put on events there for the kids. Ie. Halloween, Xmas, etc. we’re new to the area & have also made a couple of lovely friends there. Definitely somewhere we all enjoy going to each week.”
“I just wanted to say a Big thank you to 3 teachers there… Belinda, Julie and Nancy! They have been incredible and patient in teaching my children (age 2 and 6) to get comfortable in water. My 6 year old girl Nishika who was terrified to get in the pool now confidently puts her eyes in the water and swims! My 2 year old Krishna while he loves the water, he does not like going under. His teacher, Julie, is understanding and does not pressure him to do so. The main objective for children is to have fun in the water and they are. So thanks guys… Much appreciated!”
