A new resource library for children’s centres to help improve services for the under five’s in East Devon has been launched.

Centres in Sidmouth and Ottery can now loan out toys and books for free to toddler groups, childminders, pre-schools and other groups.

The combined resource library is stored at Clyst Vale Children’s Centre in Clyst St Mary Primary School, and membership is free for childcare professionals.
