What our customers say about us

My 2 year old loved Aisha’s class. It’s a fantastic outlet for any toddler who is being minded at home to interact with other children and learn lots of songs and rhymes!

- Laura Larkin - Dundrum - PlayLab course

Loads of fun for both me as a Mum and my baby. Really liked learning the baby sign language.

- Lorna - Marino - PlayLab course

My little girl enjoyed her free trial class so much that we signed up straight away. Looking forward to next term.

- Aoife Lawless - Terenure - PlayLab course

"I attended the course last Saturday & I was very impressed, I Definitely found it helpful. In particular I felt coming away that I understood the concepts & methods; I did a 3-day occupational some years ago & was more confused coming away from that. Instructor was excellent & good mix of content/practical/sample-stories & taking questions. ...

- Oliver Farrell - Harcourt St - firstaid course

The course was excellent. John McCormac the presenter was also super. He had a lovely style and I really learnt a lot from him. In fact it is quite shocking how little I really knew about first aid before hand. It should be a mandatory course for all parents!

- Anna Scally - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I attended with 5 of my female friends, all mums to young babies/children. We hope to send our husbands on similar course! I have recommended it to a number of people in work and one couple have signed up for a course with Claphandies in July. The instructor was excellent ? made the subject very real through his examples and stories ? much more...

- Caoimhe Giblin - Carmelite Centre - firstaid course

Really enjoyable classes to get Mum and baby bonding. My son lights up on hearing the songs and really loves interacting in the class.

- Kate Ryan - Mount Merrion - PlayLab course

My little one was very shy when he joined the play lab but Sonya was very nice and supportive. She knew exactly how to approach him and encouraged him to participate in all the activities.

- Viktorija - Ballsbridge - Herbert Park - PlayLab course

My son loves ClapHandies every week. Mary is just fantastic and caters to all the children every week in their own special way. Definitely recommend

- Lisa Ryan - Castleknock - PlayLab course

Hi Liza, the course went really well, the instructor Patricia was extremely competent and approachable. Everybody on the course was happy with the course content and preferred doing the course in my house, among friends. I will certainly recommend your company to my friends if needed in the future, Caroline
