Pimlico Toy Library - Multiple roles



Details of the Charity:

We are a 32 year old registered charity working with families with under 11’s. Our aim is to develop each child’s potential through play.

We provide 4,230 play places each year at 6 x  2hour play and toy-loan sessions for 0-5 year olds. In the school holidays, activities are appropriate for 0 -11 year olds. Qualified toy Librarians are at each session to motivate and support learning.

Families from a wide range of cultures, backgrounds and religions are able to socialise and feel a sense of belonging. Children learn and develop social interaction, confidence and a willingness to learn which prepares them for nursery and school. This early intervention improves their long term life -chances.
