During these unusual times, the usual activities you might attend with your child are not running, however, many of those activities have moved online!
We are all living in unprecedented times with the Coronavirus outbreak and our usual routines are all over the place. It's well known that children need routine, which can be tricky to manage when you are trying to juggle working from home, home schooling, keeping in touch with family and friends we can't see as well as the usual goings on of running your home.
With all the usual activities, groups and events you usually attend with your child cancelled, you may be struggling for things to do with your little one. We've compiled a list of what's happening locally to keep you and your little one active at home during this time.
