Learning through play

Do you enjoy being around children? Have a friendly and approachable personality? You might be the person we have been looking for!

The Rosebud Toy Library is a non-profit community service looking to increase the number of hours we are open each week so that families and children can borrow. Toy Library Session Leaders run a borrowing session once a week or fortnight during school terms, looking after the borrowing and returns of toys.

Rosebud Toy Library a community-based organisation, passionate about supporting families in our community by providing a wide range of good quality educational, social and recreational toys that may be beyond the resources of the average family.

The Rosebud Toy Library is supported by members who as a condition of membership volunteer their time once a year for toy library duty and contribute to fundraising and stocktake activities.

We are looking for volunteers to run a borrowing session once a week during school terms so that we can increase the number of hours we are open each week.

A volunteer session leader looks after the borrowing and returns of toys for a minimum of two hours per week or fortnight during school terms. As this will be an addition to our current opening times the time and day of the session is negotiable.

All borrowing and returns are recorded using an online borrowing system. Once toys are returned volunteers check all the parts are included and they are clean before returning them to the shelves.

Other tasks include welcoming and chatting to members, recommending toys if you feel comfortable doing so, joining up new members and taking eftpos and cash payments. Training is provided in all of these areas.

In line with our child safety and operational policies volunteer session leaders require Working With Children Check and current Co-Vid 19 Vaccination.

Preference will be given to people who have experience working with children or in a child related field, however this experience is not essential.

Please contact us to set up a time to meet with one of our committee members to discuss this opportunity.
