New Mobile Playbus Official Launch in Connemara Saturday, 18th April 2009

The Galway City & County Childcare Committee is launching its new Mobile Playbus in Carraroe on Saturday 18th April at Scoil Náisiúnta Mhic Dara at 2pm. A family occasion, the launch party is set to be an afternoon of ‘ceoil agus craic’ for parents and children. TG4’s Máire Treasa Ní Dhubhghaill will officially launch the ‘bus mór dearg’ and the Easter Bunny will also make a special appearance with gifts for the children. All are welcome to what promises to be a fun day for the whole family.

The Mobile Playbus is a service provided by the Galway City & County Childcare Committee in conjunction with HSE West whereby children and their parents can avail of a programme of Early Childhood Education and Care. There are two buses, catering for a range of communities and families in Galway City and County who do not already have access to childcare services.

Always a huge attraction for excited pre-schoolers, the Play Bus services are participative, involving the children and parents in planning and delivering the services. Parents are given the opportunity to meet, network or attend training on the Play Bus while their children attend the childcare service.
