Did you know that 86% of children found in an aquatic emergency are wearing their day to day attire? This provides a completely different experience for your child. Extra weight, sensory experiences and distractions. At ISR of Lake Lanier, our lessons are concluded when children demonstrate that they are both competent and confident in their skills. It is NEVER a "trial by fire" or a "push and see what happens scenario".
During the final week at ISR of Lake Lanier lessons, while under the watchful eye of Instructor Robin Adams, each of her students have the opportunity to practice their ISR Self-Rescue™skills in both their summer and winter clothes. Lessons begin in February contact Robin today: email@example.com or visit our sign up page by clicking HERE!

If you are looking for "lots of singing of songs while you hold your baby in the water, turning in circles"...ISR of Lake Lanier is not the right program for you. However, if you are looking for a program that will teach your child aquatic survival skills if they go unnoticed in a body of water then you are on the right website and off to a great start! Self-rescue swimming is an added layer of protection. Although many programs for young children focus on a water orientation approach using songs and games, this particular approach does NOT teach your child any of the skills necessary for survival.
Many programs teach children that the water is a fun place to play without teaching them any meaningful skills. Remember the water will not be a fun place for your child if he or she is unskilled and finds himself alone in the water. This approach may actually make a child more vulnerable to drowning as a child is taught to be fearless without any understanding of the skills needed for effective swimming.
ISR lessons encourage water competence first thereby promoting a safe foundation for a lifelong enjoyment of the water.

Did you know that drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of 4 in the U.S., and it is a preventable tragedy. A curious little one, an unlocked door, a propped open gate, and a backyard pool happens all too often... even with conscientious grown-ups. At ISR of Lake Lanier, children as young as 6 months old learn the skills they would need to save themselves if they were to find themselves in the water alone. For lessons beginning in 2015, stay tuned for our CYBER MONDAY special!
Parents know their little ones can get into virtually anything in an instant. Traditional drowning prevention strategies, while important, overlook one of the most formidable defenses: your child. At ISR of Lake Lanier, children who are mobile enough to reach the water alone are taught to save themselves should they reach the water alone. Generally speaking, children who can crawl and sit unassisted can learn to rollover onto their backs, breathe and rest until help arrives. Similarly, children who are walking learn the full ISR Self-Rescue™ swim-float-swim sequence.
The focus of ISR Self-Rescue™ lessons is survival. Why? Across our nation and in 18 of our states, drowning is the number one cause of death for children under the age of four years old. This statistic is alarming, but the good news is...drowning is preventable. ISR Self-Rescue™ recommends building layers of protection between your child and the water. These layers are essential because the reality is that most children do not drown because of LACK of supervision, it is a LAPSE in supervision, and it only takes a momentary distraction for a curious toddler to get out of your sight. ISR Self-Rescue™ students are the best aquatic problem solvers in the world!
