Swim and splash with your preschooler
It may be freezing outside, but the water’s fine inside!
Both the Kroc Center in Downtown Greenville and many local YMCA locations offer infant and toddler swim lessons yearlong. Three YMCA locations have indoor pools: Caine Halter, 721 Cleveland St., Greenville; Greenville Health System, 550 Brookwood Point Place, Simpsonville; and Eastside, 1250 Taylors Road, Taylors. Membership is not required to take swimming lessons, but unlike the Kroc Center, they do not offer single-day passes for nonmembers.
The Kroc Center also features a zero entry pool which has a gradual slope instead of steps. Small children can splash in the shallow end, as if at the beach. Families with multiple children can find age-appropriate play structures for each child.
