Kids Swimming

Important notice: Term 1 Kids Learn-to-Swim classes. Please see the Important Updates page for more information.


UQ Swim School boasts one of the most comprehensive aquatic education programs in Queensland with a dedicated team of teachers that share the love of water and teaching children. Classes cater for all skill levels and children are placed into a class according to their swimming ability.

We believe children learn through play and our aim is to make lessons fun and encourage all children to enjoy the water.

UQ Swim School is located at the University of Queensland, St Lucia. The Learn-to-Swim program coincides with the State School terms and is offered all year round.

Swimming classes for kids run for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the class level, and are held daily throughout the school term. To get the best results for your child, we recommend enrolling into a minimum of two lessons per week with the second lesson each week being half price (valid only for the child that participates in the first lesson).

All teachers are AUSTSWIM and Swim Australia accredited.

Enrolments for Summer programs are open now. To enrol in our Kids Swimming programs please call us on (07) 3365 6047 or come along to the Aquatic Centre and a member of staff will be happy to enrol your child on the spot.
