Infant and Young Child Survival Swimming Program Now in Cumming
CUMMING, GEORGIA – December 12, 2011 – Infant Swimming Resource (ISR), the safest provider of survival swimming lessons for babies and toddlers from six months to six years old, today announced that it is now offering its Self-Rescue™ program in Cumming, beginning on January 9, 2012.
“Sometimes, everything we do is not enough to keep a child from drowning. Even with alarms, door locks, pool fences and supervision, children can escape from protective care and find themselves in trouble,” says Ashlee Forscher, Certified Infant Swimming Resource Instructor. “At ISR, we arm children with the skills to survive if they were to accidentally end up in the water alone.”
ISR integrates swimming skills that are developmentally appropriate for young children, teaching them to save their own lives, while building the confidence that can lead to a lifetime of fun in and around the water. For 45 years, ISR has successfully provided over 7 million safe lessons to infants and young children.
The ISR lesson experience is a comprehensive six-week program where each lesson is customized for the child as they are safely guided through the learning process.
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 children 1-6 years old 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.
