Jonah's story 4/12/2010
My son Jonah completed the float instruction at 8 months of age with Veronica Kerst in Lakeland FL. We've had a few maintenance lessons since then and he is now 19 months old. Last week, we were sitting on the top step of a pool and he reach forward to try to grab the handrail. He missed and landed face-first in the water. His body immediately flipped over into his float and he inhaled NO water, even as I scooped him back up. Another lady at the steps near me was amazed that he held his breath and flipped as instinctually as he did. We are so thankful for ISR!
Adrianna learned how to survive the dangerous water when she was only 14 months old. My princess owes this to Veronica Kerst. This is our second year doing the program and she swims like a fish. I know it works because she has fallen in the pool recently and does what she was taught, float on her back. Thanks Veronica!!! Patty
Tucker's Story: My little boy, Tucker, had taken survival swimming from Veronica Kerst last summer. We were on our way to Kansas for vacation when Tucker fell in the pool. I was about 30 to 40 feet from him when I heard the splash and by the time I looked back, he had already gotten to his back and was floating. He knew enough to look around and when he saw the pole towards the steps, he tried to reach for it and then flipped back over to float until I was able to grab him. VERONICA is amazing! What she does with these little children is incredible. I am forever thankful to my friend, Tina, who shared the information about ISR with me. I feel so confident that Tucker would be able to survive in the water if he accidentally fell in until someone was able to get to him, or until he was able to pull himself out. Thank You, Dana
Tina M: I cannot stress enough how important these lessons are to your children & your piece of mind. We are so fortunate to have instructors like Veronica to teach our children to survive in water so they become confident and strong swimmers from such an early age. I am always amazed when I watch Veronica help save yet another young life. This is the best thing you could ever do for your child don't wait & register today. My daughter could swim at 3 and now my son at 2 All thanks to Veronica Kerst.
Whitney S: Allowing Veronica to teach my boys how to swim has been, by far, one of the most positive things I've ever done for them. The peace of mind she's given to me is priceless-they're all swimming now, with a level of confidence I never imagined! Veronica is SO GOOD at understanding each child's personality and adapting her lessons and technique to suite each child. You can tell that she has a genuine love for children and sincerely wants to see them learn how to survive in the water. I've told every mom I know about Veronica's program, and to every mom who reads this, I encourage you to let her work with your children as well-you'll be so glad you did! One of these students DID fall in the pool and was witnessed rolling over to his back and floating. So I Thank You parents for putting your children's safety before everything else......else......
