Bateman’s Bay Toy Library
Anglicare’s Toy Library is a community service where parents can borrow toys, puzzles and games for young children at a low-cost.
The purpose of the Toy Library is to promote fun-filled play between parents and their children and to support the skill development and imagination of young children.
The Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters (HIPPY) is a two-year, home-based, early learning and parenting program for families with young children. HIPPY supports parents in becoming their children’s first teacher and helps foster a love of learning from a young age.
During the two years, tutors make weekly or fortnightly home visits to each family and role-play with the parents to equip them to lead their child in their learning. Anglicare coordinates the HIPPY program in the Riverina region based out of the Ashmont Community Resource Centre.
