Whilst the COVID-19 restrictions are in place we have made TEMPORARY changes to our timetable, make-up policy, lesson structure and also implemented facility rules. During these stages all of our previous policies are void and replaced with policies to meet Queensland Health Guidelines. Please view these HERE. Please see our temporary, generous make-up policy HERE.
Please note that due to restricted numbers entering our facility no make-up lessons will be able to be booked during Stage 1 and Stage 2 restrictions and only one parent may enter the facility to supervise their child.
Where is the pool located?
Lessons will be provided at C-Me Swim School, situated at 70 Russell Street, Edge Hill. We also utilise the 25m pool at Edge Hill State School during the summer months.
Is the pool heated?
Yes! Our C-Me Swim pool in Edge Hill is heated year-round and covered to keep children warm and sun-safe. We have installed café blinds, heaters and fans to ensure our swimmers and spectators are comfortable.
Port Douglas and Julatten venues are not heated, therefore lessons run seasonally.
How much does it cost?
Our 10-week Terms coincide with the Queensland State School Terms. Please see our bookings page for more details.
Lessons that fall on Public Holidays will be credited in the form of one make-up lesson to be taken during the current term. Students whom commence part way through the term will be charged on a pro rata basis.
While one lesson a week is of benefit, we recommend 2 lessons for greater and quicker improvement of your child’s swimming and offer a 10% discount for 2 lessons per week.
Working one on one in the water with a staff member. A great model for building a trusting relationship with our staff quickly.
Buddy Class—$60/lesson ($30 per child per lesson)
Learning with a sibling or buddy. Only 2 children per class, a great learning environment.
Credits are only considered for students who have incurred major illness, relocation, hospitalization or extreme family circumstances. Credits are in the form of swimming lessons and will remain on your file for 6 months. To apply for credit: In writing outline reasons for application and number of lessons missed accompanied along with the necessary documentation.

What will my child learn?
We pride ourselves on recognising the different learning styles of all our swimmers. Group dynamics, physical, social and emotional development together with varying teaching styles will all influence the routine and pedagogy of each lesson. There is no one recipe for teaching children to swim. At C-Me Swim our lessons are purposefully designed to best suit the learning needs of our swimmers.
Learning to swim is a very complex skill that requires time and commitment also patience, trust and understanding from our parents. If your child has had any negative water experiences or you are a non/weak swimmer yourself, please notify us.
How do I pay?
We now have a fully implemented online booking and payment system where you can pay by credit card in advance for the term or weekly. We also have cash and card facilities at C-Me Swim reception.
Must my child wear a swim cap?
Swimming Caps are compulsory as they help to keep hair out of your children’s eyes and make side breathing much easier, also keeping hair out of our pool so that we can maintain the highest water standards. Goggles are recommended for all ages.
Moving up levels
We promote children as soon as they are capable instead of waiting till the start of the new swim term. If your child is ready to move up to the next level the Teacher will advise you and you will need to see reception to book into the next level and receive a certificate. We will update your child’s progress that you can view via the Parent Portal.
Must my child wear a swim nappy?
It is a health requirement that all children who are not toilet trained wear a “swim nappy” during swim lessons. Disposable swim nappies are available for purchase from C-Me Swim reception.
