Fun and interactive swimming lessons for babies and children of all ages and abilities in Canberra.
At Stellar Canberra we offer learn to swim lessons, aqua aerobics, and member’s access.
Learn to Swim
Our learn to swim program is based on the Royal Life Saving Society’s Swim and Survive program. We offer regular assessments and feedback, ensuring you will always know how your child is progressing.
We’ve made the program a little more exciting for your child by bringing it to life with a fun range of sea creatures to help guide them through the levels.
Please note: Our Learn to Swim program continues through the school holidays as usual.
- Jellies, Frogs and Octopuses caters for infants from 3 months to 4 years of age.
- Turtles, Seals and Ray levels start at 4 years of age and work to increase your child’s confidence and safety in the water, while beginning to teach them vital water movement skills.
- Tuna, Barra and Wahoo levels continue to develop these water movement skills to form them into swimming strokes and survival skills that your child will be able to call on to save themselves.
- Sharks, Marlins and Dolphins levels continue to develop and refine your child’s swimming strokes and abilities to ensure that they are skilled and safe in the water.
With nationally qualified teachers and expert learn to swim programs, we guarantee that your child will learn to swim and be safe in the water.
Our lessons are $21.95 per lesson.

School Holiday Intensive Program
Our School Holiday Intensive Program runs Monday to Friday for one week of the school holidays, in place of our usual Learn to Swim classes. An intensive burst, such as our School Holiday Intensive Program, has been shown to increase your child’s learning and skill development.
Our aqua aerobics classes are perfect for adults of all fitness levels. Our aqua aerobics programs are created and delivered by our skilled and passionate aqua aerobics instructors. With graded pool depths and warm water, you’ll always be comfortable in our aqua aerobics class, while enjoying a social, water workout. See our class timetable here.
Lane space in our pool is available throughout our schedule for our valued Health Club members to relax and recover in our high quality pool facilities.
“I wanted to take the time out to single out and sing the praise of one of your Stellar team – Erica – who lives up to your name, she is ‘stellar’!
Erica has taught my young son to swim since he was the age of two, until we moved into a different class this year due to preschool hours. In fact, when we came to preview the centre, it was Erica that made our decision to join up, an easy one.
We have never looked back nor regretted our decision – and you will often find me on social media chats and talking to friends to recommend what a great place Stellar is, and Erica – if they can be so lucky as to have her as their swim teacher.
Erica has this way about her that builds close, loving relationships with the kids she teaches. She is sweet but firm, expressive and clear, supportive and comforting. It’s a big deal for these little guys to get into the water – mine used to climb to the top of my head so as not to go under – now I can’t get him above! And it is because of Erica, telling me there was no need to rush him, that one day he would ‘get it’ and boy was she right.
It’s not just Erica’s manner with the kids. She is also amazing with us parents. She is very knowledgeable, and I often observed her to be supportive of her peers – always positive, always with a smile, and often offering some coaching assistance and advice to them, sharing her experiences and observations along the way.” – Louise, August 2023
“The learn to swim program has been great for my kids. I can see the instructors and admin staff are very approachable to accommodate request for change of schedule and very prompt with their response.” – Sreerog, July 2023
“When it comes to friendly, passionate empolyees with a flawless work ethic, none come to mind quite so easily as Ben, Vincent, and Michael. These three swim instructors effectively empower my students to become truly independent and steadfast woman and children going into their adolescence. Thanks Stellar Swim.” – Bohammed, June 2023
