  • Profile

    Welcome to Learn To Swim Wharenui.  We boast Canterbury’s most established Learn To Swim programme and have a connection with many current and ex Christchurch residents that have learnt to swim at Wharenui over the last 100 years.  

    Learn To Swim Wharenui has a proven learn to swim pathway that begins at babies and continues right through to promotion to Technique and eventually Wharenui Squads.  Classes begin for babies and toddlers in Pool 3 at a warm 33 degrees.  After that children move through the Pre-School lessons and into the School-Age Programe.  Once children reach the School-Age programme which is based in Pool 2, lessons are more technique based and children are graded on ability rather than age.  

    While Learn To Swim is generally targeted towards younger members of our society it is equally important that older members and parents can swim adequatly.  It is a life skill that you will never know when you will need it.  Here at Wharenui we offer varied Adult Learn To Swim lessons from entering the water for the very first time, too advanced swim technique for weight loss programmes or recreational swimming.

    Every school holidays we run a holiday programme that offers a more intensive programe for children, children swim every day during either the first or second week.

    At Wharenui childrens safety in and around the pool is very much an important part of teaching.  Therefore group numbers a capped and teachers are constantly aware of their children in the water.  We also encourage children to stay out of the pools until their lesson begins.
