Four Oaks Children's Centre Toy Library is a library of toys and equipment that parents/carers or early years organisers can borrow. The toys are especially selected for their appeal to young children and their play value.
Something different, something new, why not come along and explore Four Oaks Toy Library. While you have a cup of coffee/tea, browse through our extensive catalogue of the toys we have on offer, and your children can play with the toys in the library's safe environment.
Healthy Start vitamins can be dispensed at sessions.
Members tell us the sessions allow them to bring babies, siblings and multiples as they are safe and accessible.
