Hanneke Dean-van Tol researched aquatic survival programs worldwide and chose to join the Infant Aquatics Network of highly skilled and exceptionally trained instructors, who specialize in teaching infants and small children aquatic survival skills. She traveled from the Netherlands to the United States (specifically Colorado) to train with me in the Infant Aquatic Survival method. Her training consisted of over 150 hours of in-water, hands-on experience teaching children between the ages of 6 months and 6 years swimming and aquatic survival skills. Hanneke personally taught over 30 babies to survive in the water during her six week training period. Hanneke demonstrated an exceptional ability to quickly grasp our specialized techniques, and also displayed a special gift to achieve the results from her students in a kind, loving manner.
I cannot say enough good things about Hanneke and am confident that she will provide your children with the safest and most effective swimming lessons available. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns.
