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.
