We are humbled by the sheer number of glowing, positive reviews we get here at Infant Swimming Resource, so we thought we would share a few of these "ISR Reviews" here:

Infant Swimming Resource Review:
I had both of our children take ISR lessons and would like to share each of their stories. My daughter had a tremendous fear of water at an early age. This fear not only made it difficult to teach her to swim, but getting her to take baths and showers was also a daily challenge. If so much as a drop of water got on her face, she would panic and throw a fit. I signed her up for lessons when she was around 3 or 4 years old with Stacy Van Santen-Barton. Stacy took her time with my daughter to help build her confidence. My daughter went from being terrified to floating on her own to swimming under water. As I write this, she is now 10 years old and loves the water. I can't thank Stacy enough for her time, patience, and dedication to helping little ones learn to swim. Her passion for her profession shows with the excellent care and service she provides to each and every family.

A few years later we had a son, moved up to the Treasure Coast, and did what all South Floridians do, we bought a boat. Most of our family time was spent cruising the intracoastal, tubing, and visiting sand bars with the kids. After having great success with our daughter learning the ISR skills, we decided it was important for our son to take lessons. We signed him up with Gina Neidigh. She did a terrific job working with him and guiding him through his lessons. She always made sure she went at his pace. He really enjoyed the lessons. On one of our waterway outings, we stopped off a little island cove in the intracoastal. My husband and I sat on the beach while the kids played in the water. Our son was walking with a tube in ankle deep water right next to us, but when we looked in his direction he was not there. We looked up and down the beach area thinking he wondered off, but we did not see him. The next thought was that he went under. This would have been a nightmare to find him as there was not much visibility in the water. I moved the tube out of the way and there he was... floating on his back. Thank God he was okay. Although the water was ankle deep, in just a couple of feet the shelf dropped to a little deeper section. When he stepped there, he realized he could no longer reach the bottom and automatically remember to float. He was literally within arms reach. He was supervised. A split second and a couple of feet was all it took for him to go from safely playing to being in a dangerous situation.! At the time this happened, he had not yet completed ISR program, but he learned enough to save his own life. He was around 3 or 4 at the time. Now at 7 years old, he loves the water and swims like a fish. We are so thankful for ISR and their amazing instructors. It is a blessing to have a program like this that teaches children from an early age how to Self-Rescue. These lessons invaluable, priceless, and the best investment a parent could make.

Infant Swimming Resource Review:
Mrs. Colleen is fantastic! I am very pleased to see my sons progress, to see how Mrs. Colleen interacts with him and all her students. My son is giddy and cannot wait to get to class every morning. Thank you!

Infant Swimming Resource Review:
It's been a great experience. I'm very thankful. My daughter Mave is really bonding with her teacher Mary Davison. It's worth every penny and I'm very thankful that we're able to participate in this. We tried 2 rounds regular swim lessons prior to enrolling in ISR and my daughter couldn't even float and was afriad to go under. Today we had lesson 7, Mave is floating, going under water and pulling herself up the side of the pool.

Infant Swimming Resource Review:
Ms. Toni has been amazing and has blown me away. My daughter loves her and feels very comfortable with her. I couldn't be happier with the progress so far. I was skeptical of ISR at first but now a firm believer this is the best route to go for her water safety and knowledge. I'm very eager to see her graduate.

Infant Swimming Resource Review:
Both of our kids (2 and 5) have had Kathy Cole as an ISR instructor starting around 1 year of age. Kathy has such a great attitude and her dedication to teaching kids to swim is amazing. She is a wonderful representative for ISR and I highly recommend her to everyone I know.

Infant Swimming Resource Review:
It has been such an amazing experience. My 2 year old is LOVING it and begs to go back daily! The difference from day 1-2 to even the end of week one was AMAZING. She improves leaps and bounds with every lesson!

Infant Swimming Resource Review:
Today my 3 year old, Wyatt fell in our pool while playing, head first. I was sitting right next to him, and I didn't panic. I saw him right himself and pop his head out of the water, and I calmly told him "You've got this buddy. Swim to the steps." And he did. THANK YOU Carmen Glasser and ISR for not only teaching him to save himself, but teaching me to remain calm in the situation!!

He cried for a little bit as it was a startling situation (and our pool is like 50 degrees) but I told him he was a super hero now, because he had the knowledge and power to save himself.
Forever Grateful for ISR!
