The resource lending library is for child care providers looking for information on parenting and early childhood learning and care. The library has resource books, pamphlets, curriculum guides. We have books on starting your family child care, on how to continue developing your family child care home and so much more.
Toy and equipment lending library
Agency-approved child care providers, and CUPW members may borrow toys and equipment from the Family and Child Care Connections’ lending library. This service is particularly valuable to new providers who are just setting up their homes, as well as to those who would like to offer more variety in their child care environments.
The equipment in the library has been approved by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA approved) and the toys meet Health Canada’s Product Safety Regulations. The equipment and toys are checked before borrowing and upon their return to maintain their safety features. Agency staff will explain or demonstrate how to use the equipment and toys safely before lending it to child care providers.
This service is not currently available to the general public.
