An event every week that begins at 12:00pm on Tuesday and Thursday, repeating until June 28, 2018
The Toy Library and Early Learning Center is a free resource to the community that relies on the generous support of donors. All of the toys and learning materials are shelved by age group in four categories to support children’s development: language and pre-literacy, thinking skills, movement and physical development, and social/emotional development. This arrangement allows parents, caregivers and child care providers to match their children’s interests and developmental needs with toys that promote learning and fun!
It sounds like a crazy idea, but in Napa County it’s a reality! CRC’s Toy Library is a green and frugal resource for Napa County families and early childhood educators. After filling in a membership agreement, toys and early learning materials are available for a 14 day loan to anyone who lives in Napa County. Borrowing toys saves families and early childhood educators money and keeps interesting playthings in the hands of children whose developmental needs change rapidly in the early years. As one member puts it, “children fall in and out of love with a toy in a matter of days sometimes”. Our toys are selected with an eye for durability, practicality, developmental appropriateness and long-term usefulness.
