Family Swim School & TikeSign - Aquatic Sign Language

At SwimTikes, we pride ourselves on providing high-quality learn to swim lessons in an intimate boutique learning environment.


Each child is recognised as an individual and guided on their own aquatic journey for infants from 8 weeks new to pre-squad aged children. 

Welcome to the SwimTikes Way

With over 20 years industry experience by the founder alone, as a small local family run business we're committed to providing a strong foundation in core swimming skills, highly experienced educators that are up to date with international standards, and most importantly a learning environment where your child can progress at their own rate.

We understand that learning to swim and being safer around the water is so much more than another children's activity. It is a journey of self discovery, confidence and growth, both in an out of the water. It is a life skill that not only opens up so many more experiences, but it could save their life.

Our curriculum structure reflects this by grouping children of similar capabilities, including infants together, rather than on a broad age scale. We strongly believe that a multifaceted approach to learning and being safer around the water happens through a holistic approach including gradual skill-building teaching strategies, individual self-paced learning and incorporated safer water practices.

We would love for your family to join our swimming family and to let us be a part of your child's aquatic journey.

Infants & Toddlers

Our Infant program caters to each level by providing it with its own purpose-built lesson plan each week, focusing on activities that enhance previously learnt skills and encouraging the acquisition of new milestones through the use of movement and play-based learning.


Toddler Transitions

By far the most rewarding and challenging levels for tikelets, parents, and aquatic educators, our transition levels aim to gradually move parents out of the pool through a smooth and happy process. 


Pre-Kindy & Kindy

Our tikelets are now ready to be in a class without a primary care giver and have almost graduated from our 'Swimming Free At 3' program and are preparing to undertake our 'Stroking At 5' program.


School Ages

Our School Ages program uses progressive steps to help tikelets put individual skills together to form a whole complex skill. A strong emphasis is placed on developing a solid foundation, gradually adding another layer one after the other to form a whole stroke.

Squad Prep

Our Squad Prep level is a class that allows children to prepare for Squads. Swimmers - not only to refine all 4 strokes, but they also work on endurance and swimming with a strong technique over longer distances.



TikeSign is the pet project of our amazing aquatic educators and is a combination of AUSLAN, Puggles, Key Words and SwimTikes hand signs.

What our families say

"We love SwimTikes because no matter what, our daughter has always had a smile on her face when she's at swimming. We love that the lessons aren't too big.

We can't wait for our newborn to be old enough to join in the SwimTikes fun too."
