Our very popular Toy Library is held on a Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon, term time only, at Mere Green Combined School, Mere Green Road. Come along and have a coffee, while you chat, browse the catalogues, and the children have a play with a selection of our toys. Childminders, Grandparents, Dads and Foster Carers are very welcome.
We have limited capacity to offer setting loans to parent/toddler groups, pre schools, nurseries and schools. Please enquire.
We now have a Baby Group on a Wednesday afternoon which is for ages birth to standing/crawling only. from 1.30-3.00p.m. Play zones are set up for baby development and you can have refreshments and meet other parents. There are some under one toys available for loan.
We offer Sensory sessions also with a pop up sensory room. On Tuesday afternoons monthly. Sessions for all are charged and are run for specific age groups - babies or ages 1-2 years. We encourage and welcome new parents to these. You do not have to be a Toy Library member or regular attender.
Sensory sessions for children with additional/special needs can be tailored to needs and offered for individuals, small groups, groups of friends or family groups- please get in touch.
