Why learning to swim will benefit your child

Swimming lessons equip your kids the skills they need to be safe and enjoy being in and around the water, and fast-track physical and mental development. And JUMP!’s positive learning environment leads to increased confidence for children. Like to discover the benefits of swimming for your child? Please feel free to contact us via phone or email to discuss your needs or to arrange a free introductory lesson. Hope to see you soon!

Our great Aussie lifestyle centres around water-based activities whether it’s surfing or sailing on the coast, rowing or skiing on our rivers, fishing or canoeing in our lakes, or enjoying family time in the backyard pool or hotel resort. We  are actively  building a culture of fun and excitement about learning to swim, to show that teaching your children to swim is not only a safety measure but a lifestyle choice.


Swimming benefits research

Early-years swimming has been proven to help kids to develop essential academic, social and personal skills. A four-year study of over 7,000 children by Griffith University found that swimming children were more advanced in physical and mental development when compared to their non-swimming peers. Did you know the 3- to 5-year-olds who swam were 11 months ahead of the normal population in verbal skills, six months ahead in math skills, and two months ahead in literacy skills?  Kids who participate in early-years swimming achieve personal milestones much earlier than the average population, regardless of social background or gender.

What people are saying

I am so grateful for the incredible team at Jump Swim! The relationship they have with my son is so special. Every week he is improving in swimming and socially. Best decision we made as parents was sending him here! Swimming day is our favorite day of the week
Maddie has come such a long way in such a short amount of time. It was only a couple of months ago when she first started and was scared to even have water poured over her face. Now she can jump off the wall, head in water, kicking, reach and pulling all at once. The teachers have been amazingly patient! Happy parents. Thank you!
I couldn’t be happier with the entire team at Jump! We came to this centre ‘skeptical’ after many terribly unsuccessful lessons with a previous swim school. Here I was thinking my baby hated swimming, when really all she needed were bright welcoming faces, singing & lots of fun! Jump has the perfect balance between being educational & keeping it exciting & fun. She has been going here for almost 4 months now since she was 6 months old & she absolutely LOVES it! She is learning so quickly.
A very positive and encouraging learning environment filled with so much fun. My very shy little one, Sofia, has blossomed from tadpole with Sophie to a vibrant newly-promoted swimmer to frog. I am so pleased with Sofia’s progress. Thank you Steve, Sophie, Caroline and Lauren — thank you Jump Swim!
Truly a swimming school of excellence, the instructors keep the kids interested and it shows! Both of my children have improved out of sight since training here.
