Prisma Health Family YMCA all the way! They have childcare, kids classes (fit kids, sports performance, dance, swim) and have summer camps and after school programsNatalie
Prisma YMCA in Simpsonville is good. They have a 2 hour limit each day for child watch. If you are one who enjoys a good workout and showering before leaving,you do have to be very strategic in your arrival time. I have yet to find the sauna they advertise, but they do have a steam room. The pool is outdoors and under a dome in the winter. High winds will shut it down. The waters been 72-74 so far. All instructors have been amazing.Kelly

Sportsclub!!!! The Five Forks one is fabulous (haven’t been to the others). The child care facility is great and they offer classes like zumba for the kids. My kids love going to the gym while I work out.Tori
My kids love going to the childcare at Sportsclub. My 7-year-old thinks the Big Kid Room is super cool – they play games, watch movies & even have a Wii. My 3-year-old loves all the fun toys in the Little Kid Room. The staff is attentive, loving, and genuinely likes working with kids! I also recently tried Sportsclub Kids at the Congaree Road location over Christmas break. My 7-year-old had an absolute blast. They do a different activity every 45 minutes (the kids pick from 3 activities per block of time) — everything from crafts to indoor games to swimming! They even have a huge playground there specifically for Sportsclub Kids but unfortunately it was raining that day. Truthfully my child wants me to return to working a full-time job so she can go to Sportsclub Kids after school every day. Seriously…Elizabeth
SportsClub. They have 3 locations, Childcare, Moms morning out, Parents Night Out, Swimming lessons, parent/child classes and SportsClub kids has some great programs.Sarah

YMCA offers similar great family programming at their other Greenville locations, and we also love that membership at many of the branches comes with a free parent’s night out each month. Find all of the YMCA locations via their website, and consider an Upstate membership for access to all of the branches.
The YMCA memberships now include access to all locations with the location you attend most often designated your home location.Whitney

The YMCA on Pine Street. They have childcare, sports for kids are half off with membership, they are really nice, and my kids love the pool with splashpark.Christina
