Any Recommendations for "At-Home" Swim Lessons & Summer Martial Arts Programs
I am looking for the names of some excellent swim instructors who will teach my children and my sister's children how to swim for survival as well as fun in my personal swimming pool. I have a 5 month old and a 4 year old. My sister has a 6 year old, a 4 year old, and a 2 year old.
I am also looking for a good part-time martial arts program for a summer activity for the four oldest children.

I don't know if she does "at home" training, but this seemed like a really good program: http://kinderswim.com/index.html If you have 5 kids to teach, she may be willing to come to you!

My daughter taught swim lessons at the YMCA in Lakeland for the little
ones. She now lives in this area. Here is her email address if you
would like to email her and ask if she would be interested.
She teaches first grade now and will be off for the summer. Her email
address is: ____@____.com
Also, my church has an excellent martial arts program for children.
I attend River of Life Christian Center in Riverview.
Their phone number is: ###-###-####. The program is VERY AFFORTABLE and
the instruction is very good with children.
Hope this is helpful to you,

There is a program called Infant Swimming Resource that is great for children 4 yrs old and under. I started my son when he was 9 months old and it is amazing what they can learn that young regarding survival. I believe their website is infantswim.com and you can look up local instructors and some hold lessons in their pool and some will do lessons in your pool. Once he was over 4 yrs old I took him to Swim Kids USA. They did a great job with him as well - this was actual swimming lessons versus the survival techniques he learned as an infant. Good Luck - it is so important that the little learn how to swim:)

Infant Swim Resource (ISR) is the way to go. At 2, they will not only teach your baby to swim, but they will really focus on survival skills. They teach children to flip to their backs and float. It is not a play class, but a life saving one. It is well worth the money. I used Diane Cutri in Bradon. I know Emma G. will come to your home. Check out ISR 's website for more information.

Ref. swim instructer. "Infiant Swim Reachers" is wounderful. My children both learned by hte age of 3 to swim/float the leath of the pool. Call 654-swim and I think they will come to your home.
We go to the Tie Kundo class at Master Kim's location on Bell Shoals just south of Bloomingdale on the east side(by the bank and auto repair shop). They realy like it.
