Image of Learn to Swim program

Aqualogan's award winning Learn to Swim program joined forces with Laurie Lawrence Swim a few years back and has gone from strength to strength. We have adopted Laurie's world renowned quality teaching methods and programs and all of our swim instructors have been trained in these to provide consistent lessons to all of our children. They share his passion for educating families on water safety, making swimming fun and achieving maximum practice time. Our instructors also hold industry specific qualifications with AUSTSWIM and Swim Australia and regularly attend professional development seminars.

The environment at our swim school is friendly, warm and welcoming to everyone with our instructors taking pride in being able to put names to faces and tracking the progress of their children.

Lessons are held 44 weeks of the year in our indoor heated 25m pool. We teach children from the age of four months of age as it is never too young to start them in the water. Lessons run for 30 minutes.

To enrol your child for swimming lessons, simply call Logan North Aquatic Centre 07 3412 5645 or Beenleigh Aquatic Centre 07 3412 4910 or enquire online.
