We meet in Tullamore Presbyterian Church.  The cost is €3 per session, per family.

It is run by volunteer mums and dads and is for everyone looking after young children and babies at home: mums, dads, grandparents and childminders.  All children from tiny babies to pre-schoolers are welcome.

The group started in February 2009 and on average welcomes 30-40 children each week with their carers to enjoy play and socialising in a  friendly environment.
