Due to Covid-19, we are currently not running our Baby and Toddler Groups. Please keep checking our website and social media channels for further updates. 

We believe that children are never too young to join our YMCA community, and one of the best ways to do that is to join one of our Baby & Toddler Groups. Hosted at a variety of our Nursery & Pre-school locations we offer a mixture of weekly and monthly sessions for everyone to come and enjoy. Take a look below to find your nearest group:
