Our Philosophy

We are a trauma free swim school striving for world’s best practice which means, that at no time are children forced to go under or float on their back under distress.

Our classes are taught through love, patience and good guidance. 

Teaching is done gently with love, encouragement and enjoyment and not against the child’s will as we believe children learn best in a supportive learning environment.

Small class sizes allow the ability for individual instruction and development of each child.

Ensuring all teachers are provided with regular support and ongoing training enables us to deliver consistency across our program.

All activities have a purpose and help children development socially, emotionally and physically!

It’s more than just swimming, you will see your child build confidence and resilience throughout their journey at Little Pearls Swim School.


HealthySwim Accredited

Our facility is healthySwim accredited, which means we have the healthiest water available to our swimmers and staff. We have achieved this through investing in state of the art Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) technology that in addition to chlorine, safeguards both your family and our staff from viruses, bacteria, chlorine resistant pathogens such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia as well as destroys any nasty chlorine byproducts.
