advanced/ transition levels we do start to encourage children to start to wear them.
A tight-fitting swimmers nappy must be worn by all that are not yet toilet trained. These can
be purchased in supermarkets (found next to regular nappies) or at reception.
If you need to bring your pushchair into the facility we ask that you park them away from
entries and exits allowing people to pass easily.
Eating Prior to Lessons
3+ We do not recommend eating within 30 minutes of lessons to reduce risk of tummy
cramps and upsets
Babies and tots: please avoid feeding within an hour of lessons to reduce spills.
Eating after Lessons
Pool deck and change rooms are food free zones.
Food and drink can be enjoyed in the reception area.
Babies and Tots: We do recommend having and snack available for your little ones after
Entering the Pool
All swimmers must wait to be asked to enter the water by their instructor. Safe entries and
exits will be demonstrated and encouraged each lesson.
SwimTastic offers ONE Make-Up lesson per term due to an illness of the child (from week 2 of the term onwards only), and is subject to availability.
A Make-Up lesson must be carried out in the current Term.
Available spaces can be viewed on our bookings website (bookings.swimtastic.co.nz).
Assessments are carried out by all Instructors in approximately week 5. Clients will receive an email detailing their assessment. Should a swimmer be assessed as "(Same)", this means that your child has been recommended to stay at the same level, and as a courtesy will receive a rollover booking (please refer to our Rollover Policy)
If a swimmer is assessed to move up a level the assessment of (“Up”) will appear. This will require the client to rebook on Opening Day (refer to Booking Procedure Policy).
As a courtesy, SwimTastic offers a “roll over” booking to those swimmers who have been assessed to remain at the same level for the following Term. This is an identical booking to their current Term eg. Day/ Time*/ Instructor**
(NB: * Program is subject to change from time to time and **Subject to Instructor being available)
A 50% deposit is required immediately to secure this booking.
Bookings will open in week seven of the current Term for the upcoming Term. This will occur at 6.30am on a given day. You will receive notification of this in advance. Bookings can be taken through our Web Portal or via Email and Phone.
