.: Infant Swimming Lessons in Baton Rouge | Baby Swim Instruction in Gonzales, Louisiana


Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) is a nationally recognized system of aquatic survival instruction for infants and young children. The program focuses on educating parents and children about aquatic survival and safety issues.


ISR is the product of more than 40 years of research and development by Dr. Harvey Barnett.


Since 1966, more than 150,000 infants and young children have gone through our program with more than 5 million safe and effective lessons to our credit.

ISR Instructors are the most highly trained and qualified instructors in any swimming program in the country and must undergo strict re-certification testing annually. Each instructor is academically trained and tested in areas such as child psychology, physiology, anatomy and behavioral science to provide the safest lesson possible for your child. In addition, each instructor spends a minimum of 60 hours hands on, supervised in-water training working with actual students.

Please visit our award winning website at to learn more about ISR, the most comprehensive drowning prevention program in the world.


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. A child from 1 year old to 6 years old, will learn how to hold their breath underwater, swim head down, roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe; then roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool and crawl out.

This is called the ISR swim-float-swim sequence. All children will learn how to perform the skills in different types of clothes. Upon completion of the ISR program, your child will have the survival skills needed to save him or herself along with the enjoyment of recreational swimming.

Class Structure: Your child’s classes are 5 days a week, Monday – 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. You can expect your child to complete the initial course in 3 – 6 weeks. Each lesson is individualized and custom tailored for your child's needs and abilities.

National Registration: There is a one-time ISR national registration fee of $105.00 for each new student. This fee can be paid online via Paypal, credit card, or personal check. Your registration fee covers the cost of screening procedures for physical and developmental readiness of your child by our team of medical professionals. You will also receive your ISR Introductory Kit which includes your Parent Resource Book, swim diaper (if needed), ISR t-shirt, informative DVD, etc. There is an annual refresher fee or update fee of $35.00 for returning students.

Refresher Classes: Almost every parent asks if their baby or young child will really remember what they have learned. The answer is "yes." Refresher lessons are important, however, because as your children grow the proportions of their bodies change significantly. The purpose of Refresher lessons is to allow the child to practice the already learned skills with his or her new body and new set of emotions. This also provides the ISR instructor an opportunity to observe and correct any "bad habits" that may have been learned. Refresher lessons should be taken every 4-6 months for a 1-3 week time period. Regular weekly fee applies.

Maintenance Lessons: Upon completion of your child's initial lessons or refresher lessons, maintenance lessons are recommended to maintain your child's skills. Maintenance lessons are sold in packages of four (4) lessons at $40.00 per package. Please ask me for more details.

Certificates for initial lessons and refresher lessons are sold in 1-week increments (see weekly fees above). Certificates for maintenance lessons are sold in a 4-lesson package @ $40.00 per package.
