The Toy Bus
Toy Bus Beach Day
The Toy Bus is a free program geared to children ages 0 - 6 years. It provides an assortment of learning centers that are set up to encourage children to explore, create, and stimulate the senses. Opportunities to share, take turns, listen and express feelings are built into the program. Healthy snacks are provided. Come check it out!
The Toy Bus Program is a satellite centre of the Ontario Early Years Centre of Renfrew-Nippissing-Pembroke. It is also part of the Community Action Program for Children funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
The Toy Bus Team members are early childhood educators and are dedicated to providing quality, responsive and innovative programs to families. With 19 years of experience in program development coupled with in-depth understanding of the communities they serve, Toy Bus and its programs are invaluable and loved by our families.
The Toy Bus partners with many different organizations throughout the county to provide additional support and services to our families. If you have any questions or concerns about you or your child, please don’t hesitate to ask.
