Borrow-a-toy kids libary

Carrier Sekani Family Services will soon open their new toy lending library

Come on in and catch a good one at Carrier Sekani’s toy lending library grand opening.

Carrier Sekani Family Services (CSFS) is pleased to announce the grand opening of their new toy lending library at the Glad Tiding Tabernacle on Burrard St, Friday Jan. 16 from 9am-3pm.

In partnership with the Nechako Healthy Community Alliance, the program will give parents a chance to see what toys are out there, Pat Williamson said, Early Years co-ordinator and CSFS.

“It gives kids and parents an opportunity to play with the toys before they borrow them for two weeks. This way your not spending 50 dollars on a toy they don’t like,” Ms. Williamson said.

The lending library will be open every Friday from 9am-3pm offering an array of children’s toys for ages birth- 6 years.

Another program will also be run out of the space called You Make the Difference. It’s a nine-week free parent education program starting Friday Jan. 30. Lessons will be geared toward teaching moms and dads how to get down to their kid’s level and see things how they see them.

“Parenting is very important. Relating to your child is essential to establish a good early-years framework,” Ms. Williamson said.

The program will also provide free childcare from 9:30am -noon for the duration of the program.
