Grandparents/Grandchildren Group

The Group has been up and running since 2009 and provides an opportunity for grandparents, child minders and the children for whom they care to meet in an atmosphere which is warm and encouraging for both age groups. Grandparents share a cup of tea while children can play with a wide range of toys, games, musical instruments etc. The Group also acts as a link to services which provide necessary supports for those involved in child minding and past speakers have dealt with, among other topics, aromatherapy, exercise and relaxation. The Group has the ongoing support of Carlow Childcare Committee who keeps it up to date with appropriate developments in childcare/childminding.
