Little Ones

Blue Dolphins FREE Little Ones program for 2-4 month olds has been developed in line with current research to maximize early childhood development. In the first few months of life, babies begin to form real life experiences essential to their motor, cognitive and social development. The program is child focused, providing a fun, friendly and non coercive structure that allows your little one to progress at their own pace.

Little Ones is a non-submersive program that gives you the ideal foundation skills leading into our Baby Dolphin Program while acclimatizing you and your child to the water. Our Little Ones Program is just the beginning of an aquatic journey that will lead you and your child through the crucial early milestones for lifelong aquatic safety and physical development. Oh, and did we mention it’s FREE- that’s right- we believe so much in the importance of early exposure to the water that we are offering our Little Ones program for FREE!!!

Blue Dolphin runs a leading baby and toddler swim program which is both nationally and internationally recognised. Starting from 4 months of age and running through to 3 years, the program consists of three levels dedicated to teaching your young child water safety and swimming skills to set them up for life. Blue Dolphin’s baby program is child focused, providing a fun, friendly and non-coerced structure that allows your little one to progress at his or her own pace. This program also involves you, the parent, as you will be alongside your child, learning and joining in the fun. Baby Dolphins is a unique parent education program, guiding you and your child every step of the way, all whilst enhancing your bond with your little one.  The program has three competency based levels to ensure your child can progress and enhance their swimming ability when they are ready, rather than when they hit a certain age.
