Carrick on Shannon Baby & Toddler Group

All adults who are in the company of a toddler can come along and enjoy a relaxed cup of tea or coffee, while toddlers and babies have a great supply of toys and equipment to play with. This is a multi cultural group which provides a high level of support to parents who may be new to an area or from a different cultural background. This group is also particularly suited to working mums who find themselves alone or isolated once baby arrives.
