My son Raymond first started in ISR when he was 8 months old. At first I was afraid and unsure of enrolling my only child in swimming at such a young age but after seeing the reviews and the results through friends who did it ahead of me. I decided to take the plunge and do it. My husband patiently took him to class every day Monday to Friday for 6 weeks. The crying in the beginning was terrible, but the end result is well worth it. No amount of money can pay for peace of mind - knowing that your child knows how to save himself! Now at 18 months, he is done with swim-float-swim and is such a water baby..loves to play in the pool..jumps in the water 4 feet deep and floats all by himself (with us right there of course). To ISR, I will be forever grateful to you!!
