The South County YMCA offers a wide range of programs and activities for children. Younger children enjoy our 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.
