Our Story

When Ian Campbell founded JUMP! Swim Schools it was with a simple goal: to create the perfect environment for children to learn to swim.

 As a father of three young boys, he was very aware of the need for learn to swim to be a personal and private experience to ensure the best possible progression and make my children feel safe and secure.

He wanted a special place for children to learn in privacy, and in a quicker timeframe, and the phone has not stopped ringing since.

JUMP! Swim Schools are great boutique learning facilities with a maximum of only two classes at once, as well as a real community feel where we can discuss your child’s progress every class, know every child’s name and even notice when they get a haircut or a new pair of swimmers. This is the way learn to swim should be — small, intimate and private so that every child feels safe and at home as we join them on their swimming journey.

Scattered all across Australia are big, busy, high volume swimming facilities responsible for teaching thousands of children each week how to swim. When JUMP! Swim Schools opened it’s doors in 2010, it did so as the polar opposite of this high volume approach. After years in the industry, Ian Campbell saw first hand that the busy, noisy swim centre was slowing the development of little swimmers.

He wanted a special place for children to learn in privacy, and in a quicker timeframe, and the phone has not stopped ringing since. JUMP! Swim Schools prides itself on creating the perfect teaching and learning experience, by teaching in private, boutique facilities with only 2 classes run at any one time. As swimming is the most popular organised sport in Australia for children, parents are increasingly aware of the quality of lessons that comes with the name JUMP! Swim Schools.
