Learn to swim vouchers for your child
If your child is under five years old and not enrolled in preschool or school, you can apply for learn to swim vouchers in the Northern Territory (NT).
This is called the Learn to Swim Voucher Program.
Your child can receive two $100 Learn to Swim vouchers each year, one in January and one in July.
Your child must be registered for the water safety awareness program run by the Royal Life Saving Society before you apply for the vouchers.
Learn to Swim vouchers expire on 31 May each year.
