Early years gaelic

Gaelic playgroups, or Croileagan, are a good way for like-minded parents/carers to meet and for children to be immersed in another language before entering Primary School.

There are currently two Gaelic Playgroups for the 0-5 age group running within the Perth & Kinross Area. These playgroups are open two sessions a week during term time and are free of charge. Sessions include a mixture of free-play, activities, games, arts & crafts, songs and stories delivered in simple Gaelic. You don't need to have any prior knowledge of Gaelic to attend.
