What your child will learn:   A baby from 6 months to 12 months will learn how to hold their breath underwater, roll onto their back and float unassisted until someone rescues them. Children over the age of 1 year, will learn how to hold their breath underwater, swim with their head down, in a completely horizontal posture for approximately 3-5 seconds, then roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe; then flip back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool and crawl out or until they can be rescued by an adult. This is called the ISR swim-float-swim sequence. Since statistics show that 83% of all children who drown are fully clothed at the time, during the final week of lessons, while under the watchful eye of an instructor, each of our students have the opportunity to practice their Self-Rescueskills in both their summer and winter clothes. Upon completion of the ISR program, your child will have the survival skills necessary to save himself from a potential drowning situation along with the enjoyment of recreational swimming.

Class Structure:  Your child’s classes are 5 days a week, Monday through Friday.  Each class will be approximately 10 minutes long with just one child and myself in the water.  Much is accomplished in a short but very intense private lesson.  Your child will have the same 10 - minute time slot each day and you can expect your child to complete his or her initial course in 4 to 6 weeks. After the initial lesson experience is complete, ISR recommends that every child participates in 1 to 3 weeks of Refresher lessons every 4 months to a year. This will enable your child to learn how to adjust their swimming and floating skills to their continually growing and developing bodies.
