Does Miller teach back float – drown proofing babies?

Miller Swim School does not use “drown-proofing” techniques to teach babies survival in the water. Although we agree that there is a real and present danger of drowning for toddlers, we disagree philosophically with this survival method of teaching.

Miller Swim School does successfully teach babies and toddlers to swim. More importantly, we teach safety techniques that have resulted in hundreds of our students recovering from accidental falls into pools by saving themselves. We have devoted the past 60 years to developing effective young swimmers by using nurturing and effective teaching techniques.

Unfortunately, no person is exempt from a drowning accident. We believe a consistent, comprehensive swim program that covers a multitude of safety techniques for many types of water emergencies is the best method by which we could give your swimmer the skills and confidence they need to perform those skills when it truly matters.
