From the reception to the small class size, everyone is so helpful and easy to deal with. My daughter absolutely loves her teacher and couldn’t be more excited about going to class each week.

‘A wonderful introduction to swimming’

As our reviewers tell us, the staff at Rackley Swimming go above and beyond to make the experience comfortable and fun for every student. Every single one of our reviewers said their instructor was and their kids looked forward to classes each week.

As a new family to Rackley’s Yamanto, it has been a wonderful introduction to swimming lessons for our little girl. It has fantastic facilities for families attending swimming lessons and Piper (14 months) enjoyed being able to play in the water and being encouraged to splash and
have fun.

It’s been wonderful being greeted by lots of smiling and helpful staff and there is always someone close by to answer any questions or help out. – Carmen, mum to Piper

Improvement from the first lesson

Their focus is not only on fun but also technique and water confidence. Our reviewers were blown away by how much fun their kids had but also how much they learned in such a short time.

The staff are amazing! They catered for our needs and made us feel like family. They recognise everyone is different and they pay attention to everyone.

 I also saw such an improvement in my little boy at home and with others. I believe these lesson befit him. He loved the water and the hugs from the instructors. He loved making new friends,” Jamika, mum to Judas

The swim teachers are excellent at teaching correct techniques right from the beginning and gently-corrected techniques during each lesson.” – Vicki, mum to Jethro

‘Highlight of her week’

The goal at Rackley Swimming isn’t just to teach kids to swim but rather to foster a love of the water and nurture this aquatic lifestyle. Clearly, it hit the mark with our mums too!

My toddler loves to go to her swimming lesson and it’s definitely the highlight of the week! Her improvement is clear even though it’s been only a short period of time.

I’m so glad I found this place where my daughter can learn, play, improve and have fun! All at the same time.” Gabriela, mum to Alice
