Sport is Spraoi  - Parent and Toddler Groups

This Parent Toddler programme is a service provided by The Early Learning Initiative (ELI) for local parents in the Docklands areas of East Wall and Ringsend.

These weekly groups run for 1.5 hours weekly in a community centre and are relaxed, fun, warm and welcoming. Generally parents and toddlers aged from 18 months up to 3 years old attend. The group provides activities, rhymes and books to support parents and toddlers to learn through play together.

The Parent Toddlers groups use the ‘Sport is Spraoi’ programme which the Early Learning Initiative (ELI) has developed. This curriculum is child-centred, play based and incorporates the principles of Aistear - The National Framework for Early Learning.

The aims of these groups is to:

  • Support toddlers learning through play

  • Encourage reflective parenting

  • Increase parent to parent support

  • Strengthen parent/child attachment
