All patrons who enter the pool are required to either purchase a periodic membership from the Nhulunbuy Corporation or pay a casual entrance pass. This is a requirement of the local Nhulunbuy Corporation and is not inclusive in Travelling Tadpole Swim School lesson prices.
All children attending classes under the age of 14 years must have a parent or guardian present for the duration of the lesson. Parents should remain at the centre while children are completing lessons in case of any emergency. Travelling Tadpole Swim School’s responsibility for your child starts at the commencement of the lesson and finishes when the lesson is over. Parents are responsible for their children at all other times.
MAKE UP POLICY
There are no makeup lessons and all missed lessons require full payment. However, in the case of major illness, please present staff with a medical certificate and a make up class will be arranged (subject to availability). Make-Up Lessons can be scheduled up to one week in advance after the missed lesson and must be used within the current block of lessons. Make-up lessons cannot be transferred over to a new block of lessons and will be arranged by the swim school coordinator.
SWIM LESSON POLICIES
Please notify us if your student is unable to attend their swim lesson via email or phone so their teacher can be made aware.
We reserve the right to cancel swim lessons at any time for any reason. We reserve the right to combine classes regardless of age group or level if necessary. We do our best to provide a consistent teacher in every class. While we will do our best to contact families when a teacher change is occurring, we reserve the right to change teachers as needed.
GENERAL PARENT INFORMATION
Children should be at poolside a few minutes before lesson commencement. Placement into classes is based on swimmers ability (not age) therefore student assessments are ongoing and swimmers will progress as their ability improves.
At the end of each lesson, the children will be offered a confectionary Snake or lollipop. Parents must allow teachers to reasonably supervise their children during all lessons therefore parents should not approach children or teachers during lessons as it can be very distracting. A suitable time should be arranged with the coordinator should a parent need to discuss any issues or concerns. Travelling Tadpole Swim School will exclude children from lessons if behavior is deemed inappropriate and children may be asked to sit pool sit to observe the lesson for a short period of time.
HEALTH AND HYGIENE
All children under the age of four years must wear an aqua nappy during swimming lessons. Additionally, please keep your child home if they have conjunctivitis, open wounds, any gastro viruses or serious infections, which are deemed contagious.
