- Olivia McCarthy - Harcourt St - firstaid course

We love the different props used every week and the very simple but effective activities with these. I also like the themed discussions and interaction with other mammies. The tutors are really enthusiastic and make sure that every infant is included and engaged.

- Orla Donoghue - Marino - Wobblers - playlab course

I thought the course was excellent and I found it very interesting and useful. The instructor was knowledgable and friendly, and had an appropriate sense of humour. I would certainly recommend it to friends

- Annette Sohor - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I think claphandies is a great social outlet both for the babies and parents alike. My little girl loves Mr. Badger and gets so excited when she sees him each week. She also loves the rhymes and songs.When she gets upset I say one of the rhymes and she instantly stops.

- Margaret O'Donoghue - Dundrum, Cabinteely - Babies - playlab course

"To summarise on the first aid course, I found it to be very useful, very informative and very well constructed. The Nurse who instructed on the day, well you couldn't find anyone better to run that class."
