All children learn through play; they use toys as learning tools. Toys offer the reward of fun, enabling children with disabilities to learn new skills, which focuses on abilities rather than disabilities.

 

What is the Toy Library?

The Toy Library is a mobile program, designed to serve you in your own community. Our librarian travels throughout the County, using libraries, churches, recreation centers, Boys & Girls Clubs and other sites as meeting places.

Toy Library: How Does It Work?

The Toy Library loans instructional toys to families who have children with disabilities. Toy check-out sessions usually occur every two weeks. In each visit to the Toy Library site or office, toys and their uses are demonstrated for each child. Parents then select, and check out the most appropriate toys for their child for a two week period. The librarian also assists parents with learning how to play with their children to develop cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills.

Who Is Eligible?

Children with any type of disability with a developmental age from birth to five years may enroll in the program. Enrollment is simple! There are no income eligibility requirements for participation. There is a $20.00 annual fee for program participants.

Families interested in participating in this unique and beneficial program may call UCP and ask for the Toy Library Coordinator at (858) 278-5420 or e-mail at myoshida@ucpsd.org.
