And a little mention about necessary price increases…..
As part of our commitment to providing the highest quality swimming lessons we wanted to inform you about an upcoming change for all our swimming programs. As parents of children ourselves we understand that cost considerations are essential, especially during these challenging times. However, due to rising operational expenses, including wages, utilities, rent and maintenance, this adjustment has become necessary. So for term 2,Learn To Swimlessons will increase by $1.50 per lesson and baby swimming $1 per lesson. Your lesson cost can be reviewed in the portal prior to re-booking. (We have capped the increase at less than 5% to minimize the impact on our valued community). Additionally, remember that First lap vouchers can be redeemed against swimming lessons for children aged 3-6 not enrolled in school. Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We remain committed to fostering a love for swimming, safety, and lifelong aquatic skills.
