‘I live in Aveley and we go to State Swim in Ellenbrook. They can start at about 6 months there. It's a bit more expensive than going to Altone Park but it's close, very clean and my little one loves it. They have a lot of class times too and you can do make up classes easily which we find really convenient.’ PMG Member
‘I loved the swim school near Heathridge NoR.’ PMG Member
'My two girls have been going to State Swim Canning Vale for a year and they both love it. Great teachers, lots of class times and they do make up lessons, which is so convenient for us.' PMG Member
‘My girl goes to Beatty Park in North Perth. Very nice place, we are lucky with really great teachers.’ PMG Member :)
