With schools closed until next month, many parents across Cork and beyond have once again had to get inventive with how to keep the small ones entertained within the confines of the home.

Thanks to one Cork woman and her company, keeping boredom at bay has now got that bit easier as she has made her four-week online activity programme free for parents.

Jess, a multi-award winning Senior Paediatric Occupational Therapist (OT) who trained right here in UCC, founded My OT & Me in 2018 & launched Octobox in October 2019 after identifying a need for increased access and availability of home-based supports.

“I have released our 4 week Farmyard Fun activity programme for 3-6 year olds for free on our YouTube channel.,” she told Cork Beo.
