Infant Swimming Resources (ISR) Lessons
Give your child the ability to save themselves from a drowning accident. ISR teaches self-rescue swimming for children 6 month to 6 years old.
Babies 6 to 12 months of age learn to hold their breath under water, turn onto their backs, and float unassisted. Children over a year old are taught to expand this into a swim-float-swim sequence where they learn to hold their breath underwater, swim with their head down, roll onto their back to float, rest, breathe, and roll back over to continue swimming until they reach the side of the pool, can crawl out, or be rescued by an adult. Lessons are one-on-one and uniquely tailored to your child’s needs based on comprehensive assessment and continual monitoring of your child’s health and skill attainment. Because every child learns at his or her own pace, your child will be gently guided through each skill level at a developmentally appropriate pace.
The lessons are individualized one-on-one lessons that meet Monday through Friday for 10 minutes a day. The process takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
