Going beyond traditional swim instruction, ISR teaches children how to survive in the water. Offered in partnership with Gateway ISR, Certified ISR Instructor, Stacy Wistuba.
For more than 40 years, Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) has been teaching children critical Self-Rescue® skills -- giving children the competence and confidence to safely enjoy the water. ISR’s technique teaches babies from 6 months to children 6 years of age how to save themselves if they were to end up in the water alone.
Your child’s safety is our first priority. Each lesson is uniquely tailored to your child’s needs based on comprehensive assessment and continual monitoring of your child’s health and skill attainment. Every child learns at his or her own pace, your child will be gently guided through each Self Rescue® Skill.
A child 6-12 months learns:
To hold their breath underwater To roll onto their back To float unassisted, rest and breathe until help arrives To perform these self-rescue skills first in a swim diaper and then fully clothed
A child 1-6 years learns:
To hold their breath underwater Swim with their head down Roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe Flip over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool, crawl out, be rescued by an adult or return to floating To perform these self-rescue skills first in a swim diaper/bathing suit and then fully clothed
Lessons are scheduled every day (Monday-Friday) for 10 minutes each day. Sessions are dependent on the individual child and their progression through the skills. Typically, 6 weeks is the average.

Lessons are billed weekly on Monday’s, $110/week per week. You only pay for the number of weeks it takes for your child to master the skills, typically 6 weeks.
