Parent Minder Toddler group

Fethard Parent / Minder Toddler group has been in contact with the neighbouring Clonmel branch and as a result have decided to make some changes to help increase our local numbers and make the experience more enjoyable for children and adults. The first change is that the group will now meet for two hours on Thursday mornings, from 10am to 12 noon, and the cost will remain at €2 for the first child and €1 for second child. The group will be more structured and will also include song and nursery rhyme time.

The group was set up at Fethard Convent Community Hall so that children could get to know each other and play together in a clean safe environment and enable parents to get out of their house and enjoy a tea/coffee with other parents. This is a great facility to have available to us in our town with lots of toys for the children to play with and a changing unit in the bathroom. If you have a small child at home why not come down to the hall on Thursday mornings. For this group to be a success we need your continued support.
