Parent & Toddler Groups

Parent & Toddler Groups in Tipperary

A Parent & Toddler Group is a group of parents/carers and their children who meet regularly in a suitable location, for example, a community centre, parish or sports hall.

While these groups are great for giving children an opportunity to play and socialise in a safe supervised environment, they are also very beneficial for the parents/carers as they get to meet others in similar circumstances who live in their local area.

P&T groups provide a great support network where parents have an opportunity to share their experiences and advice.

Children learn to play and socialise with one another through different activities. They develop new skills and become independent which helps them greatly when they move on to pre-school and primary school.
