Ready, Set, Toddle!

The theme of this year’s Barnardos Big Toddle is Community Helpers, people who help and support us all in our communities every day. At the very heart of Big Toddle are the children who take part and raise vital funds in communities across Ireland. You can register today at

Barnardos currently works with just under 18,000 children and families across Ireland and the funds raised will support Barnardos Early Years services. Whether you’re a crèche, a parent or a childminder you can organise your own Big Toddle anytime in May or June by registering at – your support ensures that some of the youngest and most vulnerable children Barnardos works with are given the best possible start in life.

This year, Barnardos is proud to celebrate 18 years of Toddling which has seen children from crèches, Montessoris, childcare groups, junior schools and families right across the country toddle over 228,740 miles and raise an incredible €3.9million since the campaign began.
