Australian Crawl swim schools have been developed from years of experience in teaching and coaching children from 3 months of age. Our aim is to teach children in a happy, enjoyable environment, whilst encouraging them to develop their respective skills at their own natural pace.
Australian Crawl has swim schools at the Caboolture Regional Aquatic Leisure Centre and Fitzgibbon with indoor heated pools allowing all year round swimming. Years of experience have shown us that there is no such thing as a learning curve. It should be termed “the learning crooked line” because children do not progress at an even pace. Just consider children’s growth rates. We are all aware of how they suddenly shoot up overnight and stay at that height until the next growth spurt. The same thing applies to the learning of new and often unnatural skills. All children learn at different rates and we must be patient when our children seem to stagnate or even go backwards from time to time.
These occurrences are absolutely normal, and are generally symptomatic of the child’s development at that particular moment. Swimming is an unnatural thing for most humans to do, however, parents should be patient and persist, as the ability to swim could one day save your child's life.
Our program runs 7 days a week, weekdays from 9.00am - 12.00pm, afternoons from 3.30pm – 6.00pm, Saturday mornings 7:30am – 12:00pm, and at Fitzgibbon only: Sunday 8 -12 pm

Parent and Child Classes - 30 minutes
TADPOLE: 3 months-5 months FREE CLASS.
This introduction program is designed to educate parents as well as introduce their babies to the aquatic environment.
SEAHORSE 1: Approx 3 – 8 month old babies.
These classes are designed to promote confidence in both parent and child through age-based activities.
SEAHORSE 2: Approx 8 - 15 months old.
Once babies begin to become more mobile on land we transfer these skills to the water environment. They will begin to learn to swim between parent and teacher.
SWORDFISH 1: Approx 15 - 36 months old.
As cognitive and physical development advances the classes become more challenging in terms of teaching them to swim.
SWORDFISH 2: Advanced baby level.
Swordfish 1 is a prerequisite for this class
