ActivitiesActivity groups can be available:

An activity group introduces young children to different experiences such as baby massage, music, baby signing and rhyme time, pre-school gymnastics and dancing, water activities, even Spanish and French for toddlers and football for 2 year olds! Parents and carers go along with their children often joining in the fun and making lasting friendships.
