LAS VEGAS (KLAS)— As temperatures warm in the valley, a woman makes sure infants and children are comfortable in the water, with lifesaving techniques to avoid drowning.
Most parents believe that swimming lessons are the only way to teach your child to be a confident swimmer and to stay above water. But infant swim lesson, also known as “ISR,” is a crucial program that teaches infants and young children how to behave in the water through breathing exercises and instant reflexes like rolling on their backs. .
Instructor Jessica Tuck says she starts teaching infants as young as 6 months old.
“I’ve known people who have lost children to drowning,” Tuck says. “Amazing and wonderful parents who love their kids and are caring parents and it always happens it happens to great parents all the time my boys did ISR before I became an instructor and I absolutely fell in love from the program.”
Safety doesn’t just stop at yards, Tuck says parents should also be extra careful and always make sure there are locked gates around a pool, and if they have a gathering, make sure you that there is always a designated person to keep an eye on the children around the water.
Each lesson lasts 10 minutes – Monday to Friday for 6 weeks. If you want to find an isr instructor in your area visit this link.
