COVIDSafe Plan

You will be able come in and browse the shelves from Saturday Jan 30th. Our community's health and safety remain a priority so we ask you to please help us by doing the following:

  • Keep your visits short and only touch what you’ll borrow.

  • Leave the little ones at home if they’ll have trouble with the above request.

  • Clean your toys before returning them.

  • Limited numbers of people will be permitted at one time, you may need to wait in the foyer until someone else leaves.

  • Visit when you and everyone in your household is well.

  • Wear a mask while visiting.

Our maximum capacity is 13, which includes children but exclude infants under 12 months of age. We want to serve as many of you as possible, so we have extended our Saturday sessions to go from 9:30am to 1:30pm. Our Tuesday sessions have been moved forward by 30 mins, so it's now from 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Because it’s an exciting option for play! Your kids get to experience the pure joy of discovering new toys each week that they can explore, pretend and play with. And we know how quickly they grow, so it’s wonderful to be able to stimulate them with age-appropriate toys they may only enjoy for a short time.

Borrowing from the Toy Library:

  • Is Easy On Your Family Budget – Reducing your spending on toys

  • Keeps Your House Tidier – Decreasing the number of toys stored at home

  • Minimises Your Waste – Reducing your disposal of goods

  • Promotes Sharing Toys – Teaching your kids mindful habits

Children also learn a lot through play – from problem solving to physical skills. By joining the Toy Library, your children can play with a wide variety of toys, giving them more opportunities to expand their learning experiences. And because you’re borrowing them, you don’t have to pay high prices for new toys or waste space storing toys they grow out of.
