Playgroups and Toy Libraries
Gwydir Toy Libraries strive to promote a family friendly, networking and educational service for all families within the shire to access at their leisure. The Toy Libraries facilitate the emergent development of the child by implementing developmentally appropriate experiences during service session times. The Toy libraries encourage families to join the service and utilise the borrowing of toys, games and educational equipment and attend events with guest speakers. Families and children are encouraged to participate in playgroup sessions with craft, language and literacy and music and movement activities on offer.
Access to trained staff is available to help guide and or support families in their role as parents/carers of small children upon request or as required.
Memberships start at just $20 as a non-borrowing member, (this allows members to join unlimited service sessions for 12 months), $25 for a casual borrowing membership (allowing unlimited access to service sessions and 5 borrowing sessions throughout the 12 month period) and $50 for an unlimited borrowing membership (permitting unlimited borrowing and service session attendance throughout the 12 month period of membership).
