Lessons consists of private, one-on-one instruction DAILY (Monday through Friday) for 4-6 weeks, depending on the age of the child and which technique is being taught. Each lesson is approximately 10 minutes each day. Your lessons time will be at the same time each day throughout the entire 4-6 weeks. Lessons are always taught at your child's emotional and physical pace and with safety as the top priority. Once students are completely skilled, they will practice their skills fully clothed. Regardless of age, EVERY child will learn how to survive in the water.
There is a financial commitment involved with ensuring your child’s opportunity to receive this specialized aquatic survival instruction. The cost of lessons is a weekly tuition of $95-$150 depending on many factors such as location, pool rental fees, etc. Lesson fees are payable to the instructor and is based the number of weeks your child needs lessons. The weekly tuition is due regardless of the number of lessons you attend that week. Even though tuition is paid on a weekly basis, you are committing to the course until your child masters his or her survival skills. If there is a need for financial assistance, please contact me for scholarship information.

Refresher lessons are extremely important in continuing and maintaining your child’s Self-Rescue® skill development. Children grow and develop rapidly from infants to toddlers and into young children. This development process represents improved strength, coordination, and a more finely tuned cognitive ability. In accordance with this growth, children enrolled in ISR return periodically to participate in Refresher Lessons. Refresher lessons are designed to fine-tune your child’s existing ISR Self-Rescue® skills to meet the demands of their growing bodies. It will allow them to make adjustments in their float and strengthen their swim. It is not unusual for children to not swim and float at the same skill level that they did at their last season's lessons. This does not mean that they have forgotten to swim or float, only that they need to practice their skills in their new, larger, stronger body. The length of the refresher lessons will vary greatly based on the child's water experience and any interference that may have occurred since the last time they took lessons.
Previous Swim-Float-Swim students will take approximately 1 to 3 weeks to refresh.
Previous Rollback-to-Float students will take an average of 5-6 weeks to learn the Swim-Float-Swim sequence.
Maintenance lessons are also available at any time for regular fine-tuning of your child's Self-Rescue® skills. These lessons are highly recommended before going on a beach vacation or a trip to the lake to make sure your child is confident in the water.
