New Pop-Up Toy Library promises fun and learning in Maitland

Maitland City Council Libraries will soon open a Pop-Up Toy Library thanks to the support of RDO Hunter distributors for John Deere.

Designed to enhance childhood development and nurture a love for learning through play, the first popup is set to launch on Friday, 20 October, at the Gillieston Heights Hub.

The Library will offer a range of experiences for children aged zero to eight every Friday afternoon from 3.00pm to 5.30pm.

“Discovery and play are vital elements in a child’s development, nurturing their imagination and creativity,” Coordinator Community Participation, Carol Edmond said.

“In line with the initiative, the toys purchased for the library and supplied from RDO Hunter will be durable and safe, eco-friendly, culturally diverse and geared towards developing fine motor, gross motor and cognitive skills.”

The carefully curated collection of toys is fun to play with and durable, safe, and eco-friendly, catering to a wide range of developmental aspects, including fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and cognitive skills.

“This initiative strives to support children as they embark on their educational journey, nurturing a lifelong passion for learning through play,” Carol said.
