I teach at a private residence in the Oak Hills Subdivision. It is located off Siegen Lane near Highland Road.
Lessons are 10 minutes a day. 5 consecutive days a week for approximately 6 weeks. The consistency of daily lessons are critical for learning efficiency. These are NOT traditional swim lessons! We are teaching highly specialized skills and it is very important to attend class everyday. If you cannot commit to this schedule, you madly not register until you are sure you can.
Available lesson times vary from session to session. Please check my schedule.
Lessons are held M-F.
Parents are not required to get in the water. I do suggest parents join lessons to practice swimming with their child using their new ISR skills.
No, lessons are always one-on-one.
ISR lessons are for children ages 6 months to 6 years.
YES! We teach children to have a healthy respect for the water and we work in very small increments each day. We present child respect with small achievable tasks and always set them up to succeed. They learn to trust their skills, and in turn they gain and incredible amount of confidence in the water.
2021 pricing is $600 for a 6 week session for one student. Not lessons are 5 days a week for 6 weeks. A non-refundable non-transferable $300 deposit is due at the time of lesson scheduling. Your remains tuition balance is due the end of week 3 of lessons via PayPal, Cash or Check.
There is a one-time registration fee of $105 which goes directly to ISR (NOT your instructor) to cover a comprehensive medical background check that complete online when you register for classes. ISR’s Registration Evaluation Team reviews all the information in full to ensure your child can safely participate in lessons. Registration links will be sent out approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of lessons at which time you will pay the fee.
There are options to see if you qualify for ISR scholarships via non-profit partners. Live Like Jake was created in honor of Jake Roark Morrison who passed away in a tragic drowning 11/30/2013.

I currently do not travel.
Great question! ISR has been researched and developed for over 50 years. It’s nationally recognized as the safest swim programs for infants and children. Your children will learn life saving skills that traditional lessons do not provide. If you are looking for a swim class that focuses on socialization and play rathe than safety and survival, you might consider traditional swim lessons.
Every ISR instructor undergoes 8 weeks of intense training. Hands on, in the pool with an ISR Master Instructor and students, learning the ISR method. For 8 weeks, we are in ther pool 5x per week for several hours a day, for a minimum of 60 hours with ACUTUAL students. In addition, we receive extensive hours of academic training in anatomy, physiology, child psychology, behavior and development, sensorimotor learning and how each relates to the aquatic environment. Every instructor also maintains CPR and First Aid certifications, as well as annual recertification and testing to maintain our ISR certification and skills.
Refresher Lessons are highly recommend every 6 months to adjust your child’s skills to their growing body.
Maintenance Lessons are also recommended as they provide students ongoing opportunities to practice their skills. Frequency recommended depends on the student. Please speak with your instructor.
Once your child completes the session, he/she is fully skilled. Despite bring skilled, there is no substitute for adult supervision and parents should still employ layers of protection - pool fencing, pool alarms, door alarms, etc.
Some children cry the first few lessons due to mild anxiety. They are in a new place, being handed over to a stranger. It is normal for him to be wary of the situation. It’s important for us to teach your child to trust his/her instructor and eventually to trust the water. Many children can’t wait to come to lessons by the end of the first week!
Remember fear is a learned behavior. We didn’t come out of the womb afraid of spiders or water or large dogs. When someone has a negative experience that involves the fearful object or experience, fear is developed. Your child will only truly be fearful of the water if he or she has witnessed or experienced a traumatic aquatic event.
ISR might not be good fit for you. Children cry for many different reasons. I can not guarantee that your child will not cry before lessons, during lessons or after lessons.
