We LOVE toy libraries! They are a great way to save money, reduce landfill all while still letting your kids play with lots of toys. So were VERY excited to learn that Community Christian Aid (CCA) Family Day Care recently opened their well stocked toy library to the general public.
It has a wide range of toys (from floor to ceiling!) and mainly caters for kids up to 6yrs.
Families can use the CCA Toy Library once they become a member. To join you need to pay an annual membership fee of $60 for 12 months or $30 for 6 months. You can then borrow up to 4 toy/ activities, 4 puzzles and 4 books/DVDs for up to 4 weeks at a time.
Toys must be returned on or before the 4 week hire period. A late return fee of $1 per toy may be charged per week overdue.
Keep in mind that there is a minimum $5 per piece replacement fee for any missing pieces. Some pieces with greater value are charged at higher prices depending on what it costs to replace them eg Schleich animals etc. You may borrow the toy for an additional 1 month period to try and locate any missing pieces. If the toy becomes inoperable due to the missing piece, you will need to replace the toy or pay a negotiated replacement fee.
The CCA Toy Library is open at specific times on Monday, Wednesday and Friday only.
- Monday: 8:30am to 12pm and 2pm to 4pm
- Wednesday: 10:30am to 12pm and 2pm to 6pm
- Friday: 8:30am to 12pm and 2pm to 4pm
The CCA Toy Library is closed on public holidays. It may also close from time to time when the Toy Librarian is ill or on annual leave. They notify members of closures as soon as possible.
