Free Swimming Lesson for Under 5s

Let’s give every child in Australia and New Zealand the chance to learn to swim and teach the importance of water safety!

Water Safety Saves Lives

Drowning is the number one cause of accidental death in children under five, with swimming pools the most common location for toddler drownings. Learn2Swim Week aims to introduce water safety to kids under five and ultimately reduce drowning fatalities.

It was lovely, I would love to continue swimming lessons for my child, he was absolutely happy :) Big thank you to the instructor and to all behind the program.


I think this is a fantastic idea to introduce water safety. Myself and my daughter had a fantastic time and we are now enrolled in full time classes with our local pool.


It was a great experience and he had a lovely teacher, absolutely loved his first classes and is excited to do it again over summer.


It was a fantastic introduction to the water for my 2-year-old son, and I think having the lessons 3 days in a row was an excellent way to familiarise him with the pool and build his confidence. We signed up for regular lessons because we enjoyed it so much. Thank you!


I just want to say how amazing Learn2Swim Week was. My twins got to have a couple of free lessons to ensure they were comfortable with the swimming teacher prior to signing on. Thank you for providing this initiative.


This was fantastic to get my kids interested and introduced to swim safety.

🔒 Locking down for Learn2Swim Week? 🔒

Don’t worry, you can still participate. When we say we’re working with swim schools to make life-saving water skills accessible to everyone, we mean it. Make sure you're still registering with local participating schools as we’ll be bringing back Learn2Swim Week vouchers, which means once restrictions are lifted, you’ll be able to redeem your free swimming lesson/s at a later date.
Keep your eyes peeled, as our associated swim schools will be sharing lots of helpful lockdown resources to keep your kids entertained for days to come 😉
