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
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.

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.
