Our local council have sent all childminders £100 of Toy'R'Us vouchers
to be spent on toys or resorces which promote and/or support
inclusivity, so what shall I get?

I am so envious!

wow how brilliant. Do you have to use them in a particular time frame?

26-03-2008, 01:08 PM
How about just going for a good look-see around and making a wish list - then you can come home, see what you'd like to get/needs replacing etc

How lucky are you £100 for toys.

Wish our council were as generous as yours

I'd buy some outside toys if it was me as I could do with some more

WOW:excited: Can't believe it Ive just got my gift card in the post - three cheers for Lincs County Council:clapping:

Its not often you get that sort of surprise in the post.

Im not sure what to get either as we has to show what we buy "promotes and/or support inclusivity" and there are going to be random audit to check the money was spend in accordance with the guideline.

I spoke to my DW and she said we can buy anything we like with the money, as any toys can promote diversity and inclusion.
