Archer started at DLSA in February of this year after over a year of no lessons and losing most of his confidence. I am amazed how far he has come, he has just been moved up into Water Confidence 3 (he started in WC1) and he absolutely loves swimming and his teacher Danielle, his Saturday lesson is definitely a highlight of his week.

Review

can not recommend Tess or Ms heath enough. they both have such a nice caring nature and able to comfort my children and get down to their level to make them ENJOY the lessons. Tess is amazing with younger kids when tantrums accrue she is able to give them the time, love and attention they need to help stop the melt down, rather then ignoring them and giving them the cold shoulder.

Review

Our 4 months old boy (Ethan) has been in Tess's class from day one and she is truly amazing. I don't know how she is able to pay attention and remember each of the babies' learning abilities but she did! One day, Ethan suddenly decides to not like swimming (he was enjoying before; teething, separation anxiety, etc? I seriously had no clue why) and you can imagine me, lost with a screaming baby during class. I was so thankful to Instructor Tess who encouraged me not to give up coming to classes, advised me to not force my boy to do things if he doesn't like it, and how I can change my class timings to better match his early wake time. Only possible with her bountiful experience with babies! Slowly but surely, Ethan got his interest back and was able to complete the entire class happily, confidently and independently. Only stopped attending because we had to return to our hometown. Thank you, Tess and DLSA for such a fantastic program. We missed you!

So loving the early morning aqua classes, both Wednesday and Friday. Would like the Friday Morning to continue through Winter. Also a possibility of a Monday morning as well.

Darren Lange is a GREAT place to improve your kids swimming skills, from scratch or to just improve how well they swim. The swim instructors are very friendly and very helpful, and great at getting the kids to learn. I am so glad my daughter learnt new skills through them. Great place for kids and adults.

Review

Joel and Charlene are great with our littlies :)

The teachers are fantastic with the kids and the admin staff are so helpful. My daughter has improved in leaps and bounds since starting swimming lessons at DSLA.

Review

staff are very professional and friendly. They make the lessons very enjoyable and fun.

I love that the WF classes are free! The instructor Sue-Ann is fantastic, caring and patient with all the babies. Well organised classes and can't recommend them enough at DSLA

Charlene is lovely and patient with my daughter! I couldn't recommend her enough.

The water familiarisation classes are a fantastic way to introduce your Bub to the water. The instructors are fantastic and have so much knowledge!

Review

Tess is fantastic! Highly recommend the water familiarization class.

Review

Amazing service, great team. Instructor Tess is so lovely and attentive in our water familiarisation class for my 5 month old twins. We all love going and feel so very welcome!

Friendly, encouraging coaches as well as great swimming skills taught

Review

I cannot recommend Darren Lange enough! I learnt to swim here and now 20 odd years later my 2 children are learning to swim. I cannot recommend Tess enough. Tess has jumped leaps and bounds to help my 2 year old be more confident in himself and in water. My 4 month old also has tess as a swim instructor in the free class. In 5 short lessons my daughter is showing signs of being more water confident as well. My son absolutely adores Tess and I cannot recommend her enough.

Review

My son has been swimming at DLSA for the last 6 months. He started water familiarization classes when he was 3 months old and he has so much confidence (and respect) around water. It’s a great feeling as a parent knowing that even though he is so young he has already learnt some skills on how to ‘handle’ being in the water. Mum and Bub have so much confidence and it’s all thanks to our lovely and super supportive teacher Tess. Best thing you could ever do for your little one!

Review

The staff are genuinely lovely and helpful with all the baby and toddler classes that my daughter has had to do with them. Thanks

Review

My 4 month old and I go to water familiarisation class with Tess. The class is great as it helps build my little ones confidence in the water. All the staff are very lovely and cheerful and we enjoy going each week. If you have a new little bun, check out their water familiarisation class

Review

My little man is 8 and a half months old and has been doing swimming since 7 months old he is doing really well at swimming. He has Miss Sue and she is so lovely.

Review

All 4 of my kids love swimming lessons and get soooo excited on swimming day. They have gained so much confidence about being around water which is fantastic due to the amount of time our family spends around water! The staff are fantastic and friendly, they will work with you and your child to overcome any fear or issues they have to ensure your child feels safe and comfortable throughout the lessons. My kids can't wait to have their lessons with Miss Tess, Miss Holly or Mr Joel ("that man" as my daughter calls him �) Thank you guys for helping me share my love of water with my kids and giving me peace of mind!

Review

Absolutely love swimming at Darren Lange � We swim with Tess and absolutely love it. Great teachers, great classes and great price � Highly recommend!

Review

Both our sons 2yrs and 5m have Miss Tess as their instructor. Our 2yr olds confidence has grown substantially in the small amount of time that we have been going. It’s the way that she encourages and shows our 2yr old that he can do it that has given him the confidence and belief in himself. The front desk staff are very warm and welcoming and always a pleasure to talk too.

We've been taking our little boy since he was 6 months old and now at 19 months old he can almost swim unassisted. Swimming is his absolute favourite thing! He has been in Tess's class from day one and he absolutely adores her. She is amazing with babies & toddlers... she never rushes them or forces them to do things if they aren't ready. Thank you Tess & thank you DLSA for such a fantastic program.

Review

My 6 month old has Tess as his instructor and she is absolutely amazing! Since joining her classes his confidence has grown towards the water and he is excited to attend his lessons each week. I'd also like to add the ladies at the front desk are super friendly and helpful! Thanks DLSA :)

Review

The swimming staff and front staff are very friendly and accommodating. The instructors are very attentive and communicative to both the students and parents. I don't want to say to many good things about this place as it might get to busy and I won't be able to get the times I want. Great team you have there Mr Lange....you should be very proud of them all

Excellent teachers and great staff loving the free classes for my 3 month old

Front desk staff are really helpful and so are the instructors. Bub loves it and that take it at a good pace.
