Swimming Baby's mom fires back at critics

 The  video to the left is a mother's response to critics claiming she was  neglecting her baby when it fell into the water, in response to a video  that recently went viral on the web. The video showcases a baby saving  herself upon falling into a pool and was featured on FOX News. This  mother was in fact, using the video to promote the very mission that she  and we at Early Learning Swim Academy (ELSA) stand for. 

Mission and vision

Our mission at ELSA is to educate the public about water safety and the importance of getting swim lessons at a very young age. It's our mission  to teach as many kids as possible to swim and learn how to save  themselves if an accidental fall into water was to occur. It's our  mission to prevent as many drowning accidents as possible, by providing  quality, life saving skills, all while maintaining appreciation for a  safe and fun aquatic environment. It's our mission to enable your child  save themselves, develop a love for swimming and the foundation for  proper swimming technique.

Our  vision is to make infant/toddler survival swim lessons so mainstream  that everyone who has a baby from this point forward knows their baby  can swim! It's our vision to help baby swimming transition from a  mysterious, taboo idea into a household commonplace subject as normal as  a child learning how to crawl or walk. We want every parent to make  sure their child knows how to swim by their 1st birthday. It's our  vision that the skills your child will learn will inspire and encourage  others to get their child swimming as soon as possible as well. It's our  vision to never see another water-wing or floatie on another child in  another pool ever again!

Early Learning Swim Academy (ELSA) proudly supports and donates a portion of it's proceeds to The Gift of Swimming,  which provides access to drowning prevention resources and education  for the community's underprivileged, mentally or physically challenged  or otherwise disadvantaged.
