The Toy Library

Who can borrow toys?

The Service is available to registered childcare providers in Neath Port Talbot County Borough – Playgroups (Welsh and English), Parent & Toddler Groups, After School Clubs, Childminders and Foster Carers. The Toy Library also lends to Partner Agencies and schools via ELRS.

The aim of the Toy Library is to provide a FREE toy loan facility to enable children to have access to stimulating play which will enhance all aspects of their development.

A recent evaluation of the service stated:

“…… I feel I should commend the helpfulness and flexibility of the staff.  All are knowledgeable, considerate and approachable in delivering a key service to enhance play opportunities throughout Neath Port Talbot.”
