I have all three of my grandkids taking swimming lessons. The only complaint I have is the infant class size . With 4-5 babies at the same time the instructor does individual time with each of them and this can take up to several minutes of the remaining half hour of the class standing around doing nothing. The instructor should encourage the parents who are waiting their turn to be working on something. Rather than just waiting around.

the people at the reception have no empathy. I changed my child to the mens bathroom because my husband was in charge of changing him first and I left his clothes there and I went in to change him at the time of departure a woman from the reception arrived and told me there cant be even a woman in the mens bathroom You can leave the woman who is there and my son has not changed even in the first place they should have a family bathroom. Most of those who come there have 2 children or are unixes... I think they depend on the students and we depend on the teachers but They are a long way from understanding parents. What a horrible treatment they give.

The cancellation is not flexible at all for even babys class. Other swim schools can reschedule anytime online or on app. Babies under 1 can have a lot of fussy moments and emergencies they just dont allow people to cancel it. My kid cried very hard during the class and teacher just didnt care. Be aware of the reschedule policy when you sign up the class

Our daughter has been attending since she was a few months old and is now 5. She loves the teachers and the swimming and its actually learned a bunch of skills. Prices have been going up but I still highly recommend this swim school.

After 2 years this place has degraded 100 . The instructors are amateurs there is 0 learning experience. Also there are no managers . To ask about your kids progress or ask why the instructor spent 2 minutes on my kid during our 30 minute session I had to fill out a form . I canceled our membership today . Really disappointed from this establishment .

Been taking my baby for the Infant Swim Program since she was 2 months old which is the earliest. This location is at the far end of the San Bruno downtown...

Cool place to teach kids how to swim. Interactive with parents for the little ones. when they are old enough parents can watch. They earn ribbons as they pass levels so it keeps the kids motivated. Instructors are nice and there is a good responsibility to keep the students safe and learning good habits while learning to swim.

La Petite Baleens support for my crying toddler was exceptional. They genuinely cared for him and Zach the instructor displayed incredible patience and care throughout. Highly recommended

La Petite Baleem Swim School is a good place for your children to learn to swim. I have been going their for many years with grandkids nieces and nephews. A couple have gone on to swim teams. I recommend the facility for all ages.
