TOY LENDING

As a member, you can borrow a maximum of four items and keep them for up to 4 weeks.

You can borrow toys as a click & collect service and collect between 10:30-12:00

If you use our Stay & Play session, your toys will be ready for collection when you leave the session.

STAY & PLAY SESSIONS

We run Drop in Stay & Play sessions on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 10:30-12:00.

Please register for a membership before attending a session.

If you need help we can help you at your first session.

At a Stay & Play session, toys are laid on floor mats and at child-size tables for your wee one to explore. We often have some sensory activities out for little hands to explore textures e.g leaves, playdough, and painting. Help is always at hand to suggest activities, and with selecting age appropriate toys to take home.

Toys out at the session are not available to borrow on the day but you can reserve for pick up the following week.

CLEANING AND INFECTION CONTROL

Infection control process will be followed before and after each session (toys cleaned, surfaces cleaned etc.)

All returned toys will be sanitised with appropriate antibacterial solution.

We ask you to not attend a session if you or anyone in your household have any Covid symptoms.

Maria loves introducing easy crafts, using recycled materials, at the sessions and she always has a paper plate craft up her sleeve.  She enjoys seeing both children and adults being creative at the craft table and loves it when the children ask if they can take their artwork home.
