Toy Kits

Home History Our Team Events Toy Kits Get Involved Sponsor

Each toy kit comes a with toy, book, and resource card.

Toy kits are organized into four main categories Infants, Young Toddlers, Older Toddlers, and Preschoolers based on a child's age in months.

Infants are birth to 8 months old.
Young toddlers are 6 to 18 months old.
Older toddlers are 16 to 36 months old.
Preschoolers are 3 to 5 years old.

These categories are consistent with Ohio Department of Education's Early Learning and Development Standards. These standards can be found here.

Each resource card refers to these standards. They are what we want all children to be exposed to before they enter formal education. It is possible that children will be exposed to these in preschool and community programs. However, it is information every parent should know. A single program may not expose each child to all of the standards. Children will succeed when exposed to all of the standards because they lay a foundation of learning in the child's brain that may not otherwise develop. This foundation prepares a child's brain structure for all later learning. It is critical to do this during the first few years of life. A newborn's brain in primed for learning. Helping it develop properly during the first few years sets the child up for life.
