Walthamstow Toy Library and Play Centre is an educational charity which provides babies and children under the age of five with a stimulating and creative learning environment.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a safe and stimulating place for young children and their parents and carers to play, learn and interact.

Six aims underpin this mission.  These are to:

  • Support children aged under five to learn and develop and prepare for nursery education;
  • Promote bonding and attachment between children and their parents or carers;
  • Reduce isolation and help parents to develop supportive social networks;
  • Promote the health and well-being of children and families;
  • Enable access to our services from all sections of our local community particularly those on a low income; and represent the aims and interests of our members.
