7+ Tot Times in Greenville, SC for Your Toddler and Preschooler

Posted on | 2 Comments

Searching for ‘tot times near me’? Or maybe ‘toddler times near Greenville, SC’? Tot Times are awesome for little ones and their parents – kids get to play during a designated time just for them, whether it’s at a museum, bounce house, or gym. And parents know their kids are safe and enjoying the time to get out energy. We’ve rounded up the best places for Tot Times around Greenville – so pick a few and let your mini-hurricane get out some energy.

When my kids were toddlers, I loved taking them to Tot Time events around town because I felt like the business thought about what it meant for parents to have a space and time slot just for little kids without interference from bigger kids. I felt like those times were solely geared for my little one whether it was with age-appropriate toys and games or music or play areas. 

Tot Time is also great for meeting other moms who have kids the same age – a natural meetup. Most Tot Times are geared for kids who can walk up to around age 5, those who aren’t in school full-time. And while there are some places that host toddler times year-round, many just take place during school, which are noted below. 

There are several businesses that set aside time just for toddlers to play – and we rounded them up right here for you. Before you go, double-check with the business since dates and times can change before we can update it here.
