Infant swim classes help kids save themselves in water

Posted July 15, 2013

Ellie Grover takes an Infant Swimming Resource class.

WRAL-TV will have a story on its 5 p.m. newscast today about a swim program for kids as young as six months that focuses on teaching them to save themselves if they are in danger of drowning.

Infant Swimming Resource's self-rescue program teaches infants and young children survival swimming moves. These are different from your standard beginning swim lessons that focus on getting kids comfortable in and under the water and eventually move on to other elementary skills. Infant Swimming Resource instructor Kelly Champon

These lessons are taught five days a week for four to six weeks and last just 10 minutes each. The story has more information about the local program. Check out the story on the 5 p.m. news or check back here on Go Ask Mom for more information later today.

    My 16 month old Grandson has been taking these lessons for 3 weeks. I am shocked at how much he has learned! I highly recommend them!

    I won't be home by 5 but I will check back here. I really want to enroll my 2 1/2 year old in swim classes. She loves the pool and the beach and I would feel safer.
