Frequently Asked Questions

When are lessons?


Infant Swimming Resource’s proprietary Self-Rescue™ survival swimming program is a 4-6 week course, 5 days per week, for 10 minutes a 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.




Will my child actually learn to swim?


Yes. At ISR, we believe that part of survival for a child who can walk is swimming. Children learn the swim-float-swim sequence so that they could get themselves to safety. The difference in our program is that they will learn swimming AND survival skills, and how to be an aquatic problem solver.
