Infant Swimming Resource Now Has 11 Self-RescueTM Swimming Locations in Hawaii

Hawaii Instructors have taught more than 400 children on Oahu

Honolulu, HI (Vocus) April 21, 2010 -- Infant Swimming Resource (ISR,, the safest provider of Self-Rescue swimming lessons for babies and toddlers from six months to six years old, today announced that it has 11 locations on Oahu, including: Honolulu, Aiea, North Shore, Waipahu and Kailua. Since 2008, local ISR instructors have taught more than 400 children in Hawaii.

“Sometimes, everything we do is not enough to keep a child from drowning. Even with alarms, door locks, pool fences and supervision, children can escape from protective care and find themselves in trouble,” says Harvey Barnett, Ph.D., founder of Infant Swimming Resource. “At ISR, we arm children with the skills to survive if they were to accidentally end up in the water alone.”

“ISR is much different from other swim programs. It has given us the insurance that in that split second, when anything can happen, we are safer than most. Our baby can not only float to catch her breath or wait for help, but can also swim to safety,” Kehau Bugado, ISR parent. “ISR is a must for all babies and children. Had we known about this sooner, we would have had her in the program at 6 months!”

ISR integrates swimming skills that are developmentally appropriate for young children, teaching them to save their own lives, while building the confidence that can lead to a lifetime of fun in and around the water. For more than 40 years, ISR has successfully provided Self-Rescue skills training to more than 200,000 infants and young children with a 100 percent safety record.

“The ISR Instructors in Hawaii are dedicated supporters of The Baby Hui, a peer to peer parent support group in Hawaii," said Mary D'Avirro, Participant Coordinator at The Baby Hui. "We have invited them to speak at several of our events to discuss the importance of water safety for families on Oahu. We appreciate ISR and it's commitment to teaching families about drowning prevention in our local community."

The ISR lesson experience is a comprehensive six-week program where each lesson is customized for the child as they are safely guided through the learning process.

Six months to 12 months - infants learn to hold their breath under water, roll onto their backs and float unassisted.

One year to six years - learn how to hold their breath underwater, swim with their head down and eyes open, roll onto their back to float, rest, and breathe, and roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool and can crawl out. Once skilled, children practice these techniques fully clothed.
