When is it on? The Playgroup runs on Thursdays, on a weekly basis during term time from September to mid June, 10:00 to 11:30.

Where is it on? Dundrum Methodist Church Hall (Beside Wesley) D16 WK27

How much is it? Fee: €2 for Cuidiú members and €4 for non-members. Please have change if at all possible.

Who is it suitable for? The playgroup is most suitable for babies on the move up to around 3 or 4 years old. But everyone is welcome – so if you have a younger baby and just want to come for a cuppa and a chat, we’d love to see you 😊

Are there refreshments? Yes. Tea, coffee and some biscuits will be provided for the adults, and ther will be some small kids snacks (eg bread sticks, rice cakes) but please bring any additional snacks and drinks you may need.

Parking? Parking is available – please do not park in the main grounds of the church as this is reserved for members of the church congregation. Follow the driveway around to the right and park in the overflow (“grit pitch”) carpark. There is plenty of space!!

Space for buggys? There is limited space for parking buggys inside….if possible please do not bring buggy into the building – obviously not an option for everyone!

The Cuidiú playgroup is a fun and safe place for children to play and interact with others, while the adults get to enjoy a cup of tea/coffee and a chat. Dads, Minders and Grandparents are also welcome to come along with their babies and/or toddlers. As this is a self-help group, please help with setting up, tidying up, etc.
