Shapland best by far
Both my daughters started learning to swim at Shapland Swim School Everton Park at 9 months of age. I can honestly say that the teachers are very patient, kind and extremely competent with children of all ages, babies to school age. With only 3 children per class means very focussed attention. I have spoken with many people who come to Shapland after trying other swim schools and rate Shapland the best by far.
Wonderful year of swimming lessons
Thank you Pamela for a wonderful year. Our son Jackson has loved swimming on a Saturday morning and I really enjoy coming too. We can't wait till our other son Mitchell can so get a place.
I've read everyone of your newsletters and each has brought a smile to my face.
Thank you for what you do, you do it well.
Benefits of the smaller class
I enrolled my son at Shapland Swim School after receiving glowing recommendations from friends. I had become discouraged with the lessons he was receiving elsewhere and I am so pleased that I made the change. My son has reaped the benefits of the smaller class led by his lovely teacher, Heidi, and he looks forward to attending each week. The swimming lessons are personalized so that each child is taught skills relevant to their individual abilities. The teachers know each of the children and are committed to their progress. The pool and change areas are clean and well maintained and there are only two classes in the pool at one time which lessens the opportunity for distractions during lessons. I recommend Shapland’s to friends who are looking for a good swim school for their child.Michelle client Everton Park)
Less Distractions at Shaplands
My 12 month old son has come on in leaps and bounds since starting at Shapland Swim School. In fact he has learned more in 4 weeks at Shapland than he did after 5 months of swimming lessons somewhere else. I feel that the small swimming group and only two classes in pool at once has made a big improvement as my son is not so distracted. The staff at Shapland are very helpful and our swimming teacher Emma is just lovely. She is so gentle and encouraging with my son and I'm sure that's why he has learned so much so fast. I also appreciate how Emma knows exactly where my son is up to so we can work on things like him holding his breathe under water. The pool itself is very clean and a pleasure to swim in. I can't recommend Shapland Swim School high enough and most of friends have already swapped over to it.
Care and Compassion shown
Hudson has started lessons only recently (after 18 months without lessons and originally starting at another school) and I couldn't have hoped for a better school. It was a little difficult at first but the care and compassion shown to Hudson during the first few lessons made it an easy transition and one he adapted to quickly.
I couldn't have asked for better teachers who are strong and clear without being intimidating, stern or unhappy. I have a little boy who talks about Isaac and Emma in such a positive way that, I couldn't be happier for making the choice to sign up with Shapland. Hudson looks forward to his class and has progressed so quickly.
Thank you to everyone at Shapland for making us feel welcome with a special thank you to Emma, who sat with Hudson during lessons until he was comfortable and Isaac for being a great teacher and so very patient. Grace Stephens (mother of Hudson O'Neill)
My two children have been learning to swim at Shapland Swim Centre Everton Park for the past four years. I love the centres committment to quality swim instruction which is affordable for families. Shapland have a highly effective swim program delivered by excellent and friendly instructors who my children have loved. My children have now become competent and safe swimmers. Thank you Shapland!
Patient and amazing teacher
John, thank you so much for the last four years. You are amazing witht he boys and have such patience! When I told Aiden last night that today would be his last lesson, he cried for about an hour! That in itself demonstrates what an impact you've had on the boys!
All the very best,
Fun and productive swimming lessons
The fabulous amazing Anne our swimming instructor at Stretton meets the needs of the children's personality and learning styles and makes the class fun while extremely productive, small classes and the very friendly manager Gerry knows everyone by their names. Also the catch up lessons a blessing when your child has health issues and can be away lessons at a time.
Amazed at the change!
Hi Michael and Diana (Carindale)
I took Olivia to Chandler for a swim on Sunday - the first time we'd been swimming since she started classes with Shapland (her teacher is Johnny). On previous trips to the pool she has been scared and it hasn't been a pleasant experience but I was amazed at the change in her this time. She showed me all the things she has been learning in class - 'monkeying' along the edge,climbing out, jumping in and paddling and kicking to me as I stood further and further away. We even went on the waterslide - twice!! Olivia was like a different person, I was amazed and delighted to see her enjoying being in the water. I just wanted to pass this on to you and say thank you so much - your methods are getting amazing results with Olivia!
Kind regards Deb Pratt
Best time at Shaplands
Trust me...my daughter actually had the best time at Shaplands and picked up everything much more quicker even when she was there for just couple of terms.....i am planning to get her back there again! Amazing teachers.
