Infant Swimming Resource’s Self-Rescue survival swimming program is a 4-6 week course, scheduled 5 days per week, Monday through Friday, for 10 minutes each day. With a focus on safe, customized, one-on-one lessons by certified Instructors, ISR’s survival swimming lessons emphasize health, ongoing program evaluations and parent education to deliver the most effective and safest results in the industry. Children may begin lessons at 6 months of age until 6 years of age.
Lessons for a 6-12 month old focus on teaching the child to roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe, and to be able to maintain this life-saving position until help arrives.
Lessons for kids that are walking focus on teaching the swim-float-swim survival sequence. Children learn to swim with their head down; roll onto their back to float, rest, and breathe; and roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool, where they can either crawl out or until they can be rescued.
Maintenance lessons are also available at any time for regular fine-tuning of your child's skills. These lessons are highly recommended.
Refresher lessons are extremely important in continuing and maintaining your child’s ISR Self-Rescue skill development. Children grow and develop rapidly from infants to toddlers and young children. This development process represents improved strength, coordination, and a more finely tuned cognitive ability. In accordance with this growth, children enrolled in ISR return periodically to participate in Refresher Lessons.
My name is Tara Murphy. I became a certified ISR Instructor in 2014. Since then, I have had the amazing opportunity to teach the children of the Wichita area to Self-Rescue in the water. I get excited to see each child succeed in learning these survival skills.
