About Allysa

Hi there! I'm Allysa Smith, and I am so excited to be joining Infant Aquatics! Growing up as a military child, Virginia has been my longest home, and I’m very fortunate to have had access to many lakes, pools and beaches while here! Swimming has always been an enjoyable part of my life and after having babies, it became a necessity to make sure my children and family understood the importance of survival swim safety.

I first discovered the IA program in 2023 when my husband and I put our eldest son into our local program. I was immediately blown away by how quickly his skills to swim/float/swim developed and my “teacher brain” knew this was a process and team that I had to be a part of! As a former kindergarten teacher turned stay-at-home mom to two boys, ages 3 and 17 months, becoming an IA instructor will be bridging my love for early childhood development and caretaking. I can assure you that I will be treating each child as if they are my own, and I’m looking forward to creating an enjoyable environment that will enhance YOUR child’s safety too!
