Stay and Play Sessions at Mt Evelyn Community Toy Library
The Mt Evelyn Community Toy Library is a volunteer-run community group that provides access high-quality toys for local member families. This grant would help us start fortnightly Stay and Play sessions for children 0-5 that would be open to the public on a drop-in basis, so families don’t have to pay for a subscription to a playgroup. The sessions will have an emphasis on physical play using toys from our collection and be facilitated by a qualified teacher.
The major costs associated with the project are
-Venue Hire -Facilitator costs -Consumables costs -Additional toys and equipment -Marketing
The $1,000 grant will be used
The $1000 from the Leader grant will fund the fortnightly Stay and Play sessions for 1 year. This will cover the cost of venue hire, facilitator costs, consumables (such as paper and crayons), additional equipment (barriers to keep ride-on toys separate from baby areas) and marketing costs.
How they raise the rest of the funding
If there is any shortfall in available funds we will cover these costs from the toy library budget. We do this through a mix of membership fees, party pack hire and fundraising.
