Drowning takes an average of 4,000 lives per year, totaling an average of 10 drownings per day. In addition to fatal drownings, the CDC estimated that approximately 9,000 victims were seen at ER's for non-fatal submersion injury.
The statistics are staggering, but the great news: drowning is completely preventable!
Children are curious, capable, and have an uncanny ability to overcome obstacles like pool fences; at ISR Northshore we take that ability and teach them skills to save themselves if they find themselves in the water alone.
ISR Northshore offers individualized survival swimming instruction for infants and young children Ages 6 months - 6 years, teaching competence and confidence in the water.
ISR Northshore believes every child should be provided life-saving skills while developing a love for swimming and the self-confidence that comes with accomplishment.

Together, we can prevent childhood drownings by implementing another layer of protection: ISR lessons! Give your child the competence, confidence, and skills of aquatic safety with the Infant Swimming Resource's Self-Rescue Program.
ISR believes pools fences, supervision, and pool alarms are important parts of a necessary multi-layered approach to drowning prevention. However, traditional lines of defense break down, and the over 4,000 drowning deaths per year bear a grim testament to the fact that traditional approaches are missing a key component: THE CHILD.
ISR’s core conviction is that the child is the most important part of a drowning-prevention strategy and our students' survival stories are proof that children can save themselves.
Through our survival swim program, your child can learn critical survival skills and a foundation for lifelong enjoyment of the water.
"Jennifer is an amazing instructor! She has a very gentle and calm demeanor no matter how upset my child, or other children get. She's a great communicator and very professional. She takes a lot of pride in ensuring the safety and continued progress of her students. We couldn't be happier with having her as our ISR instructor and we will definitely recommend her to others."
"Jennifer Laurent is an amazingly attentive instructor. The amount of energy, patience, and devotion she puts into each individual child’s lessons is beyond fantastic! We will continue to renew our lessons/skills with her each and every year!"
"Jennifer Laurent is such an amazing instructor and the skills she’s taught my children are so invaluable! I can never praise her and ISR enough for these lifesaving techniques."
"Jennifer Laurent is absolutely amazing! You can tell how much she loves and cares for these babies that she is teaching on day #1. She makes me, as a parent, feel safe and I know that my daughter feels safe as well. She is so gentle and kind. My 10 month old daughter fussed a little the first 6 days after leaving my arms and getting in the pool but by day 7 she was clapping her hands and smiling! I get emotional thinking about what Jennifer and this program is doing for our daughter! I would recommend Jennifer to anybody."
"This is our fourth session with Mrs. Jen and I am so pleased. My child has formed a bond with her and I am confident in the lessons my child is receiving. She is so patient and kind. She provides feedback and valuable knowledge to help my child succeed. I recommend Mrs. Jen to everybody I can."
"Jennifer Laurent was an absolute blessing to have as a ISR instructor!"
"Mrs. Jennifer is the sweetest and so good with kids. My 3 year old is so excited to see her and practice his swimming! She is so patient and calm even with my 10 month old! We are thankful we found her!"
"I cannot say enough positive things about Jennifer Laurent. My daugher LOVES going to her ISR lessons. Jennifer is so patient and sweet and the reason she loves the water."
"Jennifer Laurent did so well with my son (2.5 years old) during his lessons. Without her willingness to adapt to his needs, he wouldn’t have be as successful in the course. Some days he would show up fussy, and Jennifer could make him laugh and smile, which in turn made him more comfortable and I believe he was able to retain more skills this way!"
"Jennifer Laurent was an excellent instructor. She worked with my son for his refresher class. She was patient with him and consistent with him which allowed him to attain the skills need to be safe in the water."
