All of our 4 sites (Mt. Eden, New Windsor, Kelston and Massey) hold swimming lessons for babies and toddlers from aged 6 months, through preschool, school age and up to adults. We also cater for every ability so whatever your goals give us a call today to find out how we can help.
We hold lessons at all of our sites 7 days per week and have multiple lessons running at any one time, which means we can be flexible in offering you the time/s that suit.
The majority of our lessons are 30mins long with the exception of squads being 45 mins -1 hour.
Most of our bookings are on a termly basis following primary school term dates, with the exception of New Windsor, which operates a perpetual system meaning year round consistent swimming for you. Please click here to read more about how their specific site operates.
Your booking is for the same day / time for the term or month at New Windsor.This keeps the groups as consistent as possible and means the children will have the same instructor for the term.
All classes, except for adults and squads will receive a mid-term report in week 6 detailing what objectives they are working towards and progress towards each of these objectives. The mid-term report will also give you a forecast of whether your child will be staying in the same class or moving up a class for the following term.
Week 6 is also the time at which we will open up bookings for the following term and this is priority rebook week for all existing swimmers to ensure you can get your preferred time.
What makes DGSS unique is the emphasis we put into ensuring progress and our teacher training. We have a system whereby the managers and teachers monitor your child's progress closely. If your child has been stuck at the same class level for 3 terms we will assess your child and speak with to develop a plan to move forward. Please be aware there are common sticking points and sometimes it is 'normal' to reach a plateau for a short while. However this is taken into consideration and discussed with you.
