The health and safety of our staff and swimmers is our top priority therefore we have recently invested in an Ozone Swim - Advanced Oxidation Purification System (AOP) which is a combination of both Ozone and UV technology.
The combination of Ozone and UV technology produces Hydroxyl Free Radicals, one of the most powerful oxidisers on the planet and will help us provide our staff and swimmers with the healthiest water/environment possible.
Our new AOP system will:
· Destroy Chlorine by-products (Chloramines);
· Destroy Chlorine resistant parasites such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia;
· Reduce Chlorine demand;
· Enhance water clarity;
· Ensure staff and bather comfort; and
· Improve air quality.
We are now a proud 'Healthy Swim' accredited facility.
Can’t thank you enough Alison for helping Charlie conquer his fears. Your respect for each child’s strengths and fears and gentle encouragement has been greatly appreciated. Thankyou . Highly recommend.
After going to a number of swim schools, our 4 year old son was still very scared of swimming and putting his face under the water. This all changed within 3 lessons at Little Swim Stars. You now can't get him to stop swimming under water. The growth in his confidence has been solely to the excellent instructors here. Thank you for making swimming any enjoyable occasion for us all (finally!)
We have been coming to Little Swim Stars for over 5 years with our 3 children. Our eldest 2 are now very strong competent swimmers across all strokes and our youngest, who is 5 is learning so much. A beautiful warm pool, great clean facilities and awesome instructors.
