Jenny's Kindergarten & Early Learning Lane Cove North

ENROL NOW and secure a position for your children for 2020! Pop by one our state of the art facilities and speak to our highly qualified dedicated Educators.  

Turramurra Learn to Swim is centrally located on the North Shore. In our heated indoor pool, we run an outstanding Learn-to-Swim program for babies, preschoolers, school-aged children and adults.

We have been offering professional swimming teaching in a small, caring environment since 1981.

The enclosed, specially designed teaching pool is heated to at least 32.5ºC all year. This provides an ideal environment and pool space for teaching swimming. Warm water is particularly important for parent and baby classes and relaxes children who may not be confident.

Each class is half an hour in duration. The small children feel secure and the older children can develop their strokes and technique with a teacher in the water providing encouragement and correction.

Our swimming lessons provide your child with a lifelong skill and water safety techniques. This gives both you and your child confidence around the water. Our pool water is crystal clear and our reception area is air-conditioned for your comfort.

Weekly swimming lessons are offered throughout the term as well as Holiday Intensive Swimming Programs. You are welcome to visit our Swim School to watch a class in progress. There is plenty of parking in the Council car park adjacent to the Swim School and the access is easy.   We are open year-round, six days a week, Monday to Saturday.  Contact us for more information.


Child car safety starts with properly fitting appropriate child seats and ensuring they are used correctly. It can also help to keep children happy and entertained so that you can focus on driving.

Driving with children Children aged 0 to 7 years must travel in a safely fastened child restraints. The right car seat or booster seat for your child depends on how old and how big he is:

Rearward facing (child faces the rear of the car) - use from birth and up to 6 months, with a built-in 5 or 6 point harness. Type A in the Australian Standard.

Forward facing (child faces the front of the car) - use when the child has outgrown the rear facing restraint up until at least 4 years of age, with a built-in 5 or 6 point harness. Type B in the Australian Standard.

Note: Forward facing restraints, Type B, fits most children up to at least 4 years of age. However, a new forward-facing restraint with an inbuilt harness, Type G, can be used up to approximately 8 years of age.

Booster seat - for children who have outgrown their forward facing restraint up to at least 8-10 years of age, to position the lap and sash belts safely. Type E, F in the Australian Standard.

Note: Booster cushions are boosters without the back and side wings that protect the child's head. They are being phased out, except for those built into cars.

Lap sash seatbelt - a seatbelt that has one part that goes across the lap and another that goes over the shoulder. It's recommended that children move to a lap sash belt only when they've outgrown the full booster seat or when their eyes are higher than the back of the full booster seat. A good adult seat belt fit can be achieved when a child is approximately 145 centimetres tall.

If your child is too small for the restraint specified for their age, they should be kept in their current restraint until it's safe to move to the next level.

Remember: it’s illegal and unsafe to carry your child on your lap in a car, even if you’re wearing a seatbelt.
