The Van Dyk Program was developed over many years from the early 1970’s moving to Greensborough in 1987. In 2001 the school was taken over by P&J gavin Swim Schools who merged their program, also developed since the 1970’s, with the Van Dyk program.

After so many years’ experience we can justifiably claim to be able to teach anyone to swim. Even the most difficult or nervous pupil will learn to swim well. If you have the time, we have the patience, the interest, the enthusiasm and the method.

Our swimming lessons encourage children to associate challenge and learning with excitement and fun - to associate fun with learning. They learn how to learn. In this way, lessons at an early age can be more important than a university education!

Swimming is a LIFE SKILL.

Being able to swim may one day save your child’s life. Few other sports can make that claim!

Our teachers encourage your child to achieve the most of their ability each lesson. They are flexible in their approaches so your child receives individual attention.

Every pupil receives an equal amount of attention.

Our programs cover a range of aquatic abilities. We have programs for infants, toddlers, pre-schoolers, beginners, advanced, squads and adults.

Come and swim with us to discover a lifetime love of water.
