Our Classes

The Playball program follows a holistic approach and offers learning opportunities and experiences relating to the cognitive, physical, social and emotional development of the child. Playball takes advantage of developmental windows of opportunity by providing a wide range of suitable movement skills and physical activities in a safe and secure environment - perfect for optimal learning!

At Playball, we help children develop fundamental building blocks of sport, agility balance and coordination, as well as the three key elements of physical fitness - endurance, strength and flexibility.

Playball also offers birthday parties which are hugely popular as we take 100% of the stress out of trying to organise activities and entertainment for your eager beavers. We tailor the party to suit the ages of birthday children and their classmates. 2 hours of active fun and entertainment always goes down a treat with the children and especially their parents. Here is what Linda from Ballincollig said "Ronan provided the entertainment for my sons 5th birthday party last week. My son said it was his best birthday party ever, and Ronan was fantastic at keeping in excess of 20 children entertained for 2 hours. I would highly recommend playball cork for any children's party. Thanks again Ronan."

Catherine from Ballinadee gave us this review "Thank you to Ronan for a great afternoon of fun at Tadhgs 5th birthday party . Pleasure to deal with ,would highly recommend for anyone considering booking for birthday party . Kept all the children going from start to finish.
