As it has from the beginning of this pandemic, news and information is changing quickly and we are trying to keep up, while doing our best to keep everyone informed.

Our recent news of reopening on the 1st June and DLSA Wilsonton was met with a lot of excitement, but also frustration in not getting the information sooner.

Our decision to reopen was finalised on Monday the 25th May. Since that time we have been busily working on finalising all the fiddly little things we need to do to be ready to reopen on the 1st June.

We announced to our FB pages that we intended to reopen on the evening of the 25th May. at about 1pm the next day, the 26th May, we sent out an email to all those families who had pre paid for our P220 program back before the 23rd March, inviting them to register for our special reopening program. We felt it was important to give those pre paying families the chance to get a booking, seeing that had already essentially paid for the program and have waited patiently for us to reopen. :)

Later in the afternoon on the 26th May we sent an email out to all the families who took part in our recent DLSA Survey (who had added their name and email address) and those who had pre- registered to receive updates about CV19 issues from the DLSA.

At 8pm on the 26th May we released the link to all of our social media pages and at 9am on the 27th May we emailed the link out to any family that was previously booked into our P220 program before the CV19 close down.

If you feel you didn't receive an email when you should have, please contact our Admin Team at so we can check our records and make sure we have your information all up to date.

Going forward, if you have not yet registered your interest in making a booking in our 6 Week Program starting at DLSA Wilsonton on the 1st June, please click here -

Also, looking ahead, if you would like to be the first on the list of information going out to customers regarding anything related to CV19 and the DLSA, register your details here -

Thank-you for you patience and understanding during this time. We will continue to work to keep everyone up to date as best we can.

Our Water Familiarisation Classes (WF) are very popular with new mums and dads and not only because they are free, but because it's a GREAT way to introduce your little bub to the aquatic environment, while also learning some important water safety education items yourself as a parent.

During Stage 1 of our reopening at DLSA Wilsonton, we will only be using the main 25m pool, the Hydro Pool (Toddler Program Pool) will not be active. One issue this presents is access to the water. Currently, there is no stair access to the main pool and we feel this is an important item to have for our WF mums and dads, not used to getting in and out of the pool with a little one etc.

We are currently pricing up and preparing to install fixed, stainless steel stair access for the main pool and hope to have this in place over the coming weeks. Once those stairs are in place, we will review the commencement of the WF program, which is most likely to coincide with reaching Stage 2 of the reopening process, hopefully around mid June.

Currently DLSA Wilsonton is reopening for what we term a 'soft opening' from the 1st of June. Unfortunately, our DLSA Centenary Heights program cannot resume just now.

The Centenary Heights Aquatic Centre is run by the Centenary Heights State High School and at this stage, like all other state schools, they are working under a directive from their governing organisation to not allow general public access to school facilities.

Our most recent communication suggests that we may be able to resume our program at the beginning of Term 3. We will certainly keep in contact with the CHSHS and if there is a possibility of starting the program earlier we will consider that option .

In the meantime, Centenary Heights families have the ability to join our Wilsonton program for the upcoming special 6 week program commencing 1st June.

Thank-you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
