Baby/Toddler/Kids Classes or Meet Ups

This is currently a list of Classes on in East Cork.  I am creating a new site so that you can add a class and more classes can be listed for parents to know what is going on around Cork!  Watch this space!

Summer is here and not all of the below classes are running so PLEASE always refer to the contact/website/facebook page for details on booking/cancellations or availability as this list is currently only refreshed monthly.  I have not tried all the classes myself but hoping it helps some people to find something to do with their babies/toddlers/kids.  (Mobile version of this table is still a bit dodgy)

(Links to some other classes not day specific at the end of the page)
