What is Social Circus for Toddlers?

Galway Community Circus brings the creative, physical and non-competitive art of circus to the people of Galway.

Social Circus provides opportunities for preschool aged children and toddlers to safely engage in circus skills workshops, while their parents can enjoy respite and be social on the same premises.

Social Circus can have the following benefits for toddlers:

  • Learning to play, be creative and take safe risks together
  • Encouraging social interaction from an early age – learning to share and take turns, building social skills
  • Acquiring basic motor skills and developing an age-appropriate level of physical literacy
  • Feeling safe and comfortable being the centre of attention within the group

Parents will be offered a welcoming space in St. Josephs Community Centre to connect, relax and socialise. Refreshments will be provided.

Please note: parents/carers are required to stay on the premises.
