The Sunbeam Ontario Early Years Drop-In Centre is equipped to provide toys your child will find both educational and enjoyable. Our selection includes: building toys, ride-ons, puzzles, kitchen-centre, books, craft activities and sand.
We have a wide selection of toys, which will help build skills in all six developmental areas. We are proud of our high-quality toys, including an extensive selection of Little Tikes toys.
At the Drop-In Centre, we also recognize the important role caregivers play in children’s lives. We encourage parents and caregivers to become actively involved with their children’s play.
About the Toys
When purchasing toys for the Centre, we take into consideration many different factors. We look for toys that are educational, safety-inspected, bright and colourful, well-constructed, durable and safe and appropriate for different skill levels.
We look for toys that will encourage the child’s imagination and that will help the child develop skills such as fine motor, gross motor, communication, self-help, cognitive and social skills.
There are books and magazines available to borrow, special articles and craft ideas, and information on other agencies that support families and their children. We also have information on workshops in the area on issues of interest to parents and caregivers.
