Under 5's Group

Funded By




The Newcastle Toy Library under 5’s Group offers a safe and stimulating environment in which your child can learn and develop through play.

Families have the opportunity to meet in a friendly informal environment with organised play activities to meet the diverse needs of our members.

Over the past year we have successfully introduced a visual timetable using PECS (symbols for visual communication) which has become a valuable tool to use within the under 5's group.
