Please enrol before the closing date as we cannot guarantee there will be late enrolment places available.  Once you are registered online we can also:

  • contact you by email or text to let you know seven days before online enrolments close so you don’t miss out;
  • keep you informed with news about the programs; and
  • notify you during the program if any centres are forced to shut due to emergencies (last year there were bushfires and floods and we were able to communicate with all families registered online).

Program dates, lesson times and locations for the October, Early Start and January VacSwim programs are on the Programs and Locations page.  Please browse this webpage to learn more about VacSwim.
