Every Child Needs Their Own Lesson Time

Registration Fees

ISR Registration Fee for First Timers

ISR Registration fee is paid directly to Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) via credit card as you register online through ISR. The registration fee covers the cost of a medical/development screening review to ensure the safest possible lesson for your child. There are pediatric nurses on staff who review the registration. If ISR notices anything within the registration they will be in contact with you for additional information. Once everything is good to go they will send you and your Instructor (me) notification via email that your child is approved to begin lessons.

Also note, that within this email you will receive and coupon code to purchase $15 of complimentary items like swim diapers, towels and more from the ISR store. The code is within the body of email. This is a great way to get the extra diapers you will need for class.

ISR Registration Fee for Refresher Students
or Maintenance

Lesson Fees

Weekly Lessons

Payable by cash, check, or PayPal. Payment is due weekly on Mondays. Depending on the age of your child, it typically takes an average of six to eight weeks for them to become skilled. However, ISR lessons are always tailored to each child’s individual emotional and physical pace.

Depending on what location you decided to have lessons at will depend on how money is collected.

Refresher Lessons

Payable by cash, check, or PayPal. Time slots are limited. Speak to your Instructor if you think your child could benefit from a refresher week or two. Refresher lessons are necessary if you child has had an unexpected fall into the water, will not float or perform the rollback to float, or is showing any sort of hesitation or lack of confidence in performing the skills they recently mastered in ISR lessons.

Maintenance Lessons


Payable by cash, check or PayPal. Upon completion of lessons, you may see behaviors in the child’s swimming at home that are not consistent with what your child was doing during lessons. This a natural progression for your child. As they become more comfortable and confident in the water, they will begin to experiment and explore the aquatic environment. It is important to know that this does not mean that your child has “forgotten” the skills learned during ISR lessons. However, it may be necessary to schedule a Maintenance Lesson. Maintenance Lessons are designed to fine-tune your child’s skills or prevent problems from developing in your child’s technique.

Maintenance Lesson may also be used to keep skills in check as they grow and learn more about the world.
