The Family Place has 27 Family Play & Learn Kits. Each kit comes in a large storage container and contains toys, books and a Sesame Street In Communities article based on a theme. Families can take one home for two weeks free of charge. Toys and books were chosen for their high quality and educational focus. Being able to rotate toys can help keep your child's interest and allow you to try out different types of learning toys before investing in your own. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to use these kits to play with their child/ren. Parents can help build children’s skills by asking open ended questions, talking about what their children are doing, and challenging them to try new things. Families have reported how excited their children are to pick out a new kit to take home and enjoy!

These kits were made possible by a grant from Lake Toxaway Charities.
