Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death for children under 4. OVERVIEW

Our one on one lessons for infants teach the student to rotate from a face down position to their back and float. Once they have mastered rotating to their back and maintaining a survival float, they will be required to attend lessons diapered and clothed.

Toddlers and older students are taught to propel with their face in the water, rotate to their back to float for rest and air then to rotate back to their stomach to continue to propel. This sequence can be repeated as needed. Each student will complete lessons in clothing once the skills are acquired.

  1. I have a soon to be 2 year old who is obsessed with water and a 5 year old equally as obsessed with water. Do you have any promotions for enrolling more than one child?

    1. We offer lessons as early as 7:00 am and as late as 7:30 pm. The consistency in attending consecutive days aids in the students acquisition during lessons. We can teach only 2 days per week, however, it does typically take twice as long for the child to complete the lessons.

  6. Hello Becky, I have 2 boys – 3 years old and 7 years old. I would love to be able to schedule a time to get them started in your classes. They do like the water but are uneasy due to them not being comfortable in water with out a life vest. Neither have ever had lessons before. I do work until 4:30 so would not be available until after 5:30 pm. Do you have anything available in near future? I also can be reached at 407-625-1119. Thank you – Amy
