YMCA of Greater Providence
South County Branch



The South County YMCA offers a wide range of programs and activities for children. Younger children enjoy our complimentary Kids Care and Kids Gym while parents and caregivers take some wellness time for themselves. Kids as young as 3 enjoy preschool gymnastics and independent swim instruction to start them off early that fitness is fun. We often have special events such as our Kids Triathlon, Healthy Kids Day, and Bike Day for families to enjoy the YMCA together.
