Who we are

Our Mission Statement

“The Sonshine Toy Library seeks to provide an opportunity for parents and children to experience Christian love and outreach in a friendly, supportive and stimulating environment which is accessible and open to all people.”

The Sonshine Toy Library opened in 1982, and since then has been committed to providing quality toys for young families within Warragul and the surrounding community. The Toy Library initially was run by volunteers, until, in 1999 the committee employed its first Toy Library Co-ordinator. Our co-ordinator is employed for 15 hours each week.

Meet Kerryn!

Kerryn is the coordinator of Sonshine Toy Library Warragul and Drouin. She is employed by the Sonshine Toy Library Committee and is on duty during the open hours, with the assistance of several volunteers. Kerryn has a Diploma in Children’s services and is available to give comfort and courage to parents. She has raised three children to adulthood, mostly as a single Mum, and lived in India for their early years.

The Commitee

Sonshine Toy Library is run by a committee of Christian volunteers from various churches within the Baw Baw Shire. The committee aims to provide a wide range of good quality, educational toys to assist in the development of children from 3 months to seven years of age.

They meet 6 times a year to, among other things, organise fund raising events and apply for grants (to provide for the operational costs and the coordinator’s wages), ensure toys are well maintained, general maintenance of building and grounds and provide support for the coordinator. The committee also helps oversee the smooth running of the Toy Library.
