We left Ducklands about a year ago due to moving homes and it being just a bit to far away. However a year later anytime we have to drive past my daughter still asks if we can go in and say hello, she loved Miss Naomi, and we haven’t been able to find another swim school that compares. I highly rate ducklands and Miss Naomi, she worked really well with the children and we were sad to have left.

Look no further! Duckland swim school is the best school you can ever ask for or be there to be taught how to swim.The owner and the staff are very welcoming and they always have smile on their faces that give you confidence and you know this is an excellent environment to excel 😃.I never swam before as an adult but Duckland and their staff took me under their wings as a beginner and by the end of my 3 months lessons taught by miss Cherise one of my favorite instructor I was able to build my confidence in water, master the swimming basics and be able to swim. I was super thrilled and definitely I would recommend Duckland swim school 😃.Personally I would like to thank the following Staff Nemo, Cherise and Lily for their contributions and hardwork. Keep the good work flying high up in the sky 😃💗!!

An absolutely wonderful swim school!We approached Duckland after failures at 4 other swim schools as our 5 yr old son was totally terrified with water due to a swim lesson gone wrong at the first swim school.Ms. Nemo is an absolute gem in giving us all the encouragement and support, especially to our child, with all the patience and care. Our son was able to overcome this fear with continuous individualised attention and care by Ms. Nemo and her experienced staff including Ms. Chantelle, Ms. Hannah and Ms. Naomi. Our son was able to be comfortable in less then 3months and this has been a huge achievement for our son, and all the credit goes to Ms. Nemo snd her wonderful team. Our son has now advanced to the next stage of the swim class and we are delighted to see that.The school is at a convenient location with lots of parking space, the facilities are fabulous, neatly laid out, spacious and has a play area for kids. the staff are very welcoming, friendly, caring and homely. We also love those lovely and inspiring quotes that Ms. Nemo regularly writes on the white board at the school.I will highly recommend Duckland Swim School to any family who will like to have the best swim school snd instructors in Brisbane for their children.I also commend and thank Ms. Nemo and her Duckland Swim School team for all the hardwork and care they put in to ensure a safe and effective learning experience for the kids.I wish you all the very best.

My daughters have absolutely loved duckland! We had been to another swim school previously and they just were so bored after 5 minutes but the wonderful swim teachers at duckland had both my girls captivated and listening the whole time. I recommend this company to anyone who wants to support a fantastic & caring family owned swim school ❤

The most caring and amazing swim school. The staff are caring for those who have children who have anxiety just like my boys. They are also very affordable for pricing. Definitely worth checking out. My boys will miss their swimming teachers.

Excellent training environment. Ms Naomi is great at instilling confidence in kids. Had Ms Abby and Ms Naeema (hope I got the names correct) also took some lessons for our daughter. All are capable instructors and great with kids.The pool is heated and raised. Plenty of places to sit, although near the pool there's limited spaces due to social distancing. It is regularly sanitzed and mopped to avoid incidents.There is a tiny play area for non swimming kids too.They also have a mini shop at the front to purchase swimming accessories and munchies.Overall we enjoy coming here, my daughter enjoys learning with them. I would recommend to anyone who has a child and is interested in swimming lessons for them.

My kids went here for a short time, unfortunately, but it was an absolutely amazing experience for them, they learnt so much! I love the swim teachers as they recognize any obstacles that my kiddies faced and were opened to me about how they will do things and what they noticed my kids were good at and needed help with 😊 they are very patient 😊 my kids are a bit out there 😂 but the teachers were understanding of this and helped them learn in a fun way!!! I wish we didn't have to stop coming as we were looking forward to returning when everything opened 💔💔💔 Thank you all so much 😍😍 oh and if you ever have any questions Nemo is always happy to answer them so don't be scared to ask 😍😍 Thank you for helping us with their swimming 😍😍 we are definitely going to miss it!! 🌊🌊

Thank you soooo much to Miss Naomi & Nemo! My 3 year old was absolutely terrified of water to start with & you are so patient & giving him the water confidence to get over his fear. We appreciate all that you do & thank you for all your bubbliness & hard work. He really looks forward to his weekly lesson. To anyone looking for an excellent swim school please have trust in my review 🙂

Our son swims here twice a week, and has excelled since learning to swim with Miss Naomi and Miss Abby,A very happy and family friendly atmosphere, Small class sizes that gives the kids the one on one attention to ensure they dont get left behind,For those people with multiple childrenthe have a well equipped play pen that keep the kids busy when theyre not in the pool..

Fabulous teachers with attention to detail, using so much imagination and love during the lessons - my daughter was scared to go under water and to try to swim by herself- she is now a confident little fish in the water and can’t thank them enough! I can’t recommend them highly enough! Pool is very clean as well as facilities! Another bonus there is a huge fenced play area for little ones to play in!

Couldn't reccomend Duckland Swim school more highly! Such a friendly & welcoming environment. Miss Nemo and Miss Noami have been fantastic. Our 2yr old who only started in October has so much confidence in the water thanks to their patience, time and techniques. He just loves his swimming lessons!

Duckland swim school is amazing!! My daughter loves Miss Naomi and Miss Nemo! They have been incredibly patient and accommodating with our families needs and I can’t thank them enough. The facilities are fantastic, you get straight out of the pool with easy access to change tables and change rooms and before your class there is a kids area to play. My daughter had shown great progress and has so much fun and is very confident in the water now. I am incredibly happy with Duckland Swim school and can’t recommend it enough.

could not recommend this school highly enough! Our daughters confidence and skills have come such a long way from when she first started. The teachers are so great, and this school has such a warm and welcoming environment to all their students and family. We love watching the classes week in and out and wouldn’t change for the world! The teachers really know how to connect with the kids, and the improvements and enthusiasm we see are a clear reflection on this.Facilities are great! Location is convenient, parking is always available. Timetables are very accomodating. If you are looking for a great school - this is the one!

Family friendly swim school with excellent staff who really know how to connect with your child, make them feel safe and nurture them in their swimming skills. They also have an enclosed play area with plenty of toys for babies and toddlers which is super convenient when you have multiple children attending class at different times.The pool is heated and they even have heated towel racks! Individual change rooms are great for privacy and there's plenty of change tables for babies.Always prompt replies to all correspondence and easy to organize make up classes too. Highly recommend this swim school.

We love Duckland! Miss Naomi is great with our son, and I’ve seen so much improvement in him over the last few weeks. The location is also great. While other pools are kind of stuffy while you wait, Duckland has the pool fenced off and a great waiting and changing area. The water is always perfect temperature and the room air conditioned. Highly recommend.

So Glad I stumbled across Duckland swim school. My 2 boys have thrived here quickly with teaches who care about them and their swimming journey. The facilities are always spotlessly clean, warm throughout winter, (with heaters above the change tables) and the pool is warm for the kids. There is a great gated area for children to play, and the staff are so friendly and always happy to help with anything. The best swim school we have found.

My daughter took to the instructor and the owner right away, they are just wonderful!!!
