JUMP! Swim Schools Sizzles in January with 15,000 Little Swimmers
JUMP! Swim Schools is increasing swimming participation and skill levels right across Australia, reaching a milestone in January of 15,000 little swimmers enjoying lessons in an innovative learning environment purpose-built for babies and children.
From running a single Grafton swim school in an old converted brewery just a few years ago, Gold Coast father of three Ian Campbell has created one of Australia’s fastest growing franchises and the nation’s leading learn to swim school for babies.
“Every child deserves the chance to learn how to swim. We are increasing participation and skill levels right across the country.
“Our student numbers have more doubled since July 2017, from 7500 and at a rate of 100 kids a week. We now have over 500 new little swimmers enrolling each week.
“If growth continues at the same pace, we will have over 40,000 children learning the fun life skill at JUMP! Swim Schools by the end of 2017. Should our growth build exponentially as it did the last six months, we could very well be teaching over 100,000 little swimmers!”, said Mr Campbell.
Australia’s largest national infant swim school is on track to open its 100th site in 2017 as the multi award-winning franchise company continues to expand rapidly.
JUMP!’s swim teachers are expert in teaching babies from three months of age. Only two classes are run simultaneously and the competency-based program focuses on the joy of participation and parental engagement in a fun and hygienic environment.
“We see ourselves as the child carers of learn to swim. We have a low teacher on baby ratio and we are putting specialised education with metrics back into learn to swim and that relates to our success across the country,” Mr Campbell says.
“We are excited that children reap the benefits of this tailored, highly-personalised program delivered in our fun and safe innovative swimming facility. It is the perfect environment for boosting the confidence in young swimmers.”
JUMP! Swim Schools currently operates in over 40 locations across Australia, has a further 50 schools scheduled to open in the coming six months, and has expanded internationally with a site open in Singapore and facilities mid-construction in Brazil and New Zealand.
JUMP! Swim Schools will kick off the New Year with 12 new sites opening in the first quarter and has forecast 60 new facilities to open in the first six months, bringing the total to 100 by July.
