Our swimming pools are indoors and are kept at 90 degrees, year round for optimum comfort. This helps make even the youngest or most fearful child have a warm and inviting experience. All of our swimming pools are specifically designed as aquatic classrooms, complete with steps, diving zones and both shallow and deep areas.
Atherton is the newest facility in the La Petite Baleen line up. Pool dimensions are 24X50 feet, with a maximum of six classes at a time, on both the half and quarter hour. There are 5 on-deck showers, separate changing rooms, and comfortable viewing on deck or from our viewing room.
Our largest facility, located on historic Crissy Field, has two specially designed teaching pools (30x60 and 20x40). Our San Francisco school offers up to 11 classes at a time, on both the half and quarter hour. There is a large on-deck shower area, separate changing areas, as well as on-deck and off-deck viewing for spectators.
San Bruno’s pool dimensions are 24X45 feet, with a maximum of six classes at a time, on both the half and quarter hour. This centrally located facility is convenient for the entire Peninsula. There are six on-deck showers, separate changing rooms, and a viewing room for spectators as well as on deck seating. There are two indoor play spaces, including a reading corner, activity wall, and the ever-popular train table!
Half Moon Bay
Our Half Moon Bay pool dimensions are 16X38 feet, with a maximum of three classes at a time, offering a more intimate swimming experience. The school has newly remodeled men’s and women’s changing rooms, a rinse off station, an outdoor jungle gym park, as well as on-deck or outdoor viewing for spectators. The most alluring part of our Half Moon Bay school is the waterslide, which children ages three and up enjoy at the end of their lesson!
